My first BMW....

Hello and Good afternoon

So I decided I wanted a new car before my 26th birthday this year. Ive been driving a crappy Leon for a couple of years and wanted something newer and nicer for all the motorway driving I do.

Picked up this one last week and love it, so nice to drive, good MPG, only problem is being 25 and driving this means it took me 3 days to get pulled over by the police!

Its a 57' 320d Coupe M Sport, Full Electric Heated Leather, Privacy Glass, Electric Folding Mirrors, 19" wheels with runflats (thinking of changing to normaly tyres)

Anyway, heres the pics....








Cheers, Alex

Looking good. The cops were probably just curious wether you are a rapper or a dealer

looking good dude.
ditch the rft's, if you leave them on, it wont be a case of "if they crack your rims", they WILL crack your rims. The ride is 100% better with non rft's.

When I got my E90 320d I was 21.

I got pulled over about twice a month the entire first year.

Never got done for anything, so not as if they had me speeding. They just saw a lad in the car and gave me trouble

That said usually I'd get out of the car and they'd immediately be pretty down.. Expecting some rude boy to get out the car and get a ginger kid in a shirt and shoes. Heh.

I love it, everything is so smooth, run flats make it very slightly bumpy but nothing major.

I'm gonna get it remapped when I sort out my cracked alloys!
