My new baby is Sparkling Graphite with Black Dakota Leather. Got some cool toys like bluetooth, spokey 17" alloys and professional nav's poor cousin - business (it's quite good actually).

I've been through quite a few motors since I passed my test in the 1850's, but finally caved and bought an 525D Touring in March. After too much time at the pumps decided to go for the 320D and don't have a bad thing to say about it (except not being able to adjust Dual Climate Control from one knob, but thats just an OCD thing).

Anyway, might look for some upgrades when my finance recover. Do they do blacklines for the Touring? I need to replace a few bits of trim like interior door handle and gear stick (maybe a shorter one) - judging by the jewellry scratches on the existing one, the former owner was Mr T.

Pics to come... Might try and make it up to UK6 on Saturday - perhaps there are some Dave Baileys amoung you guys (hint hint).

Nearly forgot... Hello everyone.
Welcome mate! Congrats on getting a Denzil. Unless you get a re-map you will be no match for Carl in the DXB... (you'll work out what this means soon enough!)

Yes you can get blacklines for the E91 and if you come along to UK6 you will see Matt's E91 with blacklines and he's our resident photographer

Try ebay for blacklines but must be for E91. If not, try Costwold BMW http://www.cotswoldstore.com/PartsRequest.aspx for both your blacklines and short shifter (like the one you fitted on mine). They offer a 10% discount if you fill in the online form (they phone you back to discuss so don't worry) and they offer free delivery

Hope to see Saturday mate!
