Money no object what would you drive

Simple

1. Has to be your 1 and only everyday car not just a list of bloody supercars.
2. Have to keep it for say 3 years

I'd stick with the 335D,once it's been tickled,it'll do fine.
Stonking performance and cracking MPG returns,what more could you want,well mmm ok,perhaps there would be somat

I'll struggle with the 3yrs though,can't remember the last car I had that was older then 2 & a bit yrs old.

What were the little things. Stuff like it does not want to start in the morning and the door handles fall off. Is it stuff like the character of a hand built car.

I Agree with you Pete, fantastic sound but there will be lots of trips to the petrol station with that motor or your new M5 for that matter.

I still fancy me 635d M Sport Coupe but I am not sure if I would get bored in my 3 year time period.
