2008 320d SE  [0.00]
Hi, Bought a 320d SE 6 weeks ago from Dick Lovett Bristol. Car was an ex-demonstrator. Professional Stereo without iDrive but with Bluetooth which works with my 3G iPhone thanks to a software upgrade wihich the dealer paid for. Love everything about the car except that I had to change all 4 tyres today. Previous 2 cars were Honda CR-Vs but the kids are growing up so we tend to take less stuff around with us.

Hi dxb335d

Sorry getting home stops forums!!!

In a nutshell the Atom is fantastic to drive, goes exactly where you want it to you just have to careful of cambers and bumps in the road.

On track it is just surpurb as you can imagine as that it what it is for. My first time out I did manage to spin it about 5 times, finding those limits!! Since never spun.

Can sometimes understeer as light at the front but once the tyres are warmed up it sticks to the track like glue. It has R888's all round which are brilliant and work better in the wet that other track biased tyres.

If there are any trackdays this year that the forum attend I can bring it along and you can find out exactly.

Welcome Dinsesh, congrats on the new car, what a shame about the alloys, hope they sort it properly and don't take any shite.

Hi Dawsey,

thanks for the reply. I can only imagine what a Atom feels like. I drive a single seater in 2000. It must feel like that but on the road with an extra seat LOL.

Those tyres are superb, ive been out in a Z3M with them and the grip was pheonominal around a track.

I organised a Trackday last year and will be doing another for the forum this year. So would love you to be there and go out in your badboy Atomic Monster

Hi All,

New here ,Just got my new E92 on Tuesday!! Can't seem to get out of it, keep on checking on it after every hour, what an amazingly beautiful car to drive and look at. When I'm driving I wanna be outside looking at it with those Uber cool diamond white xenons sparkling and when I'm out staring at it can't wait to drive it!

What to do!?!?

Hey Will thanks for welcome. Pretty pi**ed off about alloys, will give BMW a chance to explain how a supposed pot hole managed to crack both alloys!!!

DXB - I have the 230s with 255/30/R19 tyres

The extra seat is quite handy for golf clubs!!

Always up for a trackday, where do you look to hold them?

Will most probably be Snetterton, as its fast and not much to plough into apart from each other.

It will not be for few months yet but of course I will post up with details when the time comes around.
