Hello everyone, interesting to see what everybody does for a living!

I run a bespoke car sourcing business called Clever Car Buyer, specialising in BMW and Mini www.clevercarbuyer.com

It's fun and I get to drive a variety of fantastic BMWs. Currently have very nice, low mileage 2009 335iSE waiting to be delivered to a customer later (if he can prise it off me!) ;-)

Good money in that, well at least I know my friend's Dad manages a Waitrose and is able to run a new C-Class, a 1-Series, a BMW Mini & tart up his 80's garage queen Porsche.

Most of Surgeons and Consultants drive Merc. At least that is what I have observed.
I am consultant Physiotherapist, and unfortunately, in medical profession very few of them have good taste of cars. Most of them are happy with anything which takes them from Point A to B.

Nice to see that most of fellow members work for either IT companises or for corporate bussiness.

Yeah mine is ok for a few years, Lyneham has closed now so brize is the transport hub now.

I work on the tristars, hoping to get on the new Airbus FSTA tanker in the next couple of years!

How come you fly out of Brize?
