You coming to UK8 Paul. Look forward to seeing it then.

What a change from a 320D. Nice one.

I'm going to UK8. Looking forward to it.

Re coupe/saloon handling - I don't know how to answer that one - is there normally a difference between the two? The 6 is easier to drive fast. The 3 had more involvement with a manual box.

I have been seriously contemplating a 6 series as opposed to a 335d or i - seems so much more of a car for your money as opposed to yet another 3 series...................

Would be very interested to hear more about the ownership experience and economy etc.

Did you buy privately or is it an AUC car?

AUC - I wanted the warranty. There is a lot of kit to go wrong!!

Any questions - fire away or pm. Economy so far - test drives and showing my mates it etc and down to 20mpg now. I'm hoping to average 26 or more on motorway runs.

lovely lovey car mate....

i have my mapped 330d for another year, and the two most realistic options for me next are a mapped 335d or mapped 635d, and everytime I see the big mighty 6, I am definitely swaying towards them.

Are there any 6 forums out there?

I picture my 6 being black (although white would be uber cool), panoramic roof, i-drive with TV etc. and probably running on a set of 20" rims with a nice lip!

just need to start searching now so I can find the right one, and know what the right mods to do are kit wise etc.

Paul car looks really 'mean', reckon you're chuffed to bits.

Bet you're loving that V8 rumble.

Congrats and look forward to seeing it at UK8.
