Weekend car at last!

So after much deliberation over a long period of time I've finally pulled the trigger on a weekend car just this morning. I had a requirement for room enough to fit the family in so as I don't need to find time to use the car. I don't pick it up for a couple of weeks due to me bing at Silverstone for the F1 all next weekend and work commitments during the week.

Anyway, here it is:








It's a 2005/55 CS SMG with, just turned on the test drive, 57k miles and is currently under full BMW warranty which I will be carrying on myself. It's got Nav, TV, bluetooth, Harmon Kardon.............

I'm feeling a bit like this right now

Can i do the Northern Meet in it? Please

Thanks guys, I can't wait to get it. The throttle blip on the SMG shifts is just soooo addictive.

What colour is that? I've only ever seen the CS in silver grey so just assumed they were all that colour.

A very small part of me kicks myself for not buying one of these when i had the chance.

As DXB says.

I think Interlagos was exclusive to the CS so there shouldn't be too many about even though there's probably 5 up for sale at the moment!

Thanks

It's a keeper mate. I just need to have the steering wheel refurbished as the alcantara has bobbled, think I'll use Royal as they come highly recommended on Cutters. That's about it apart from a few stone chips on the front. Plan is to keep it stock, clean and fully up to date on the service history. Might not loose too much on it then !

Thanks Michael.

I thought that was going to read "Nearly purchased one with......... the profit from keyring sales"

Can I have another if you have any left or put me on the list for the next batch?

FRG,

Car looks lovely. Congratulations. My CS is Silver grey and I'm also a Midlander, so if you fancy meeting up anytime, let me know. For now, just enjoy the M!

Cheers
Matt
