Says the man about to get an X5... ;-)

With endless justification at every opportunity...

Xenon - you of all people know how to do a simple image search - the search criteria made me smile.

I think James Bond drives an Aston.

I'm pretty certain that I have never seen him in an estate car with skinny tyres.

.
I don't think either of my cars stand up to justification

So i don't bother too much in all seriousness.

I certainly don't go to the lengths that you do.

NFS - I guess I got my images a little wrong for you. Incredibly unfit bloke with a 335i M Sport - now I'll see if I can find an image for that one... M Sport - for those who are rather ermmm - uN Sporty. Making up for something? You bet ;-)

E90 - heard of Google? Maybe not.

Carry on gents - I know it brightens up your otherwise rather dull days.

What does a small engined SE look like in human 'peer' form?

No, what's Google?

I thought you had a 'special' folder you hid away from the wife that you could look at when you had some alone time I bet its called 'I want an M-sport' as well

Yes of course I have 1000s of random pictures of men on my hard drive - rumbled.

The folders called "I'm rather unfit and cr4p at sport so I need an M(an) Sport plastic bodykit so my car can do the talking."

Bit wordy but I like it.

My only piece of advice is that you should probably stop posting, just for a day or two... You know, just let it all blow over...

You're getting desparate now, 335d. Only unfit porkas have M-Sports?

Where do you dream up all this stuff?

I'm still getting a sense of deja vu, I'm sure you've talked about M-Sports before on another thread, but I'm struggling to find it.

PhiL -pure genius!

Something very wrong on this forum that occasionally flares up - no problem everyone slating me/my car until the cows come home, a HUGE problem if I suggest I don't like a certain model/type/option.

Now step back people, take a look at what you are writing, see if you think you are being fair and come back.

Do you honestly think, for example, that I think all M Sported BMW owners are lardy? Are you actually taking that seriously? Maybe just a wee little pi55 take? Do you honestly not realise I am forcefully stating OPINIONS and that I like pretty much every 3 series BMW (okay a "fully loaded 318d M Sport is pushing it)? Do you guys really think you are fine to be a little nasty and personal but as soon as I dish it back out, you get all stroppy or even worse, hyper pedantic?

Come on - this is a forum on the internet. It's a very very useful one and usually used in good spirits. But there's a bit of a core group that don't quite "get it" and need to resort to being complete muppets to make up for their lack of understanding.

Off for a fortnight - have fun.

335d- just a suggestion, but why not put the odd Smiley in your posts where appropriate, it lets others know the intent of your replies, other wise they can be miss interpreted. See

Maybe (mine can span more than an octave....)....but being serious, I think it is almost trying too hard to be sporty...your average Momo is significantly thinner, as is the one in my D3 and definitely better for it.....imho

Yeah, you might have a point. Likewise, the wheel in my Porsche is thinner but still nice to hold, but I must admit to liking the chunkiness to the M-Sport wheel - the SE wheel is a bit thin - the Alpina wheel is a good compromise.
