Quick review of test drive today:

EB, manual, 5 door, 3250ish miles on it. Run flats fitted.

Like:
Seating position, lower than expected (i'm 6'5" so need all the room can get)
Steering wheel, comes out further than expected, be great on track because of this.
Angle of idrive towards driver
Feel/weight of steering (on run flats)
Ride (on run flats, no adaptive fitted), way better than expected
Electric seats so no wanting to be between notches
Exhaust note, about right.


Dislike
Look of the front is challenging, dare say would grow but certainly not pretty. Better in silver/eb than darker colours IMO
Wind noise from drivers door, hopefully just this car, would drive me mad.
Cruise and volume controls swapped sides from E46/Mini and no stalk like E9*

Summary
Need to try an auto and see what figures they'll come up with, might be enough to tempt me out of E91 and E46 M3, could then get a van which would be more useful than estate/trailer.
