Yes they have - it made a great afternoons read starting from the beginning again! Only by doing that did i realise you had picked up a Cat 'D' ?

I see what you mean - cinnamon was definitely more 'tan' than 'orange' and now i'm older i find myself only looking at black for myself!

It's funny - I was looking at an M3 Alpine last night and liking the white stitching on the seats , if not the white painted on the lower centre console. But then I thought i could always wrap that if i grew tired of it...

I was arguing with myself that the M3 Edition would be a good buy over a standard car .. apart from maybe the Dakar
