hi mate,

looks gorgeous, you must have the biggest smile on your face, I bet work is dragging everyday until you get home an go for a spin. Happy for you mate.

Must make one these meets sometime and go for a spin in her. I think its a little overkill though just to get a lowly 320d off your tail!!!!! hahaha

cheers

Great to hear from you buddy! Would love to take you for a spin at the next meet. Whatever car I got, you would still be stuck to my rear bumper in your remapped 320d!!

Long time no post Pads!

I'm sure you'll keep up with him as this one is even noisier, so you'll definitely be able to hear when he puts his foot down.

Put him near a gravel trap though and you might have to tow him out.

Great to see you on here again, Pads.

Beautiful shots, as usual, Matt- just a shame Paul had to get in the way of some of them.

I'm assuming the M3 did the navigating back home, Paul?

Cheeky bugger!

Yes, the nav disc was brilliant and pointed out all the required points of interest I needed!

Thank Sergei for me...

ACE car Paul!

enjoy enjoy enjoy

My second fave colour after the white ones, although for residual value, I reckon yours would be slightly higher. White ones will eliminate 'some' future buyers, especially if it goes out of fashion?

I'm afraid we ended up a bit light on interior shots. Something to address next time.

A bit better (non-HDR derived) steering wheel as the alignment of the multiple shots in the other is slightly off.
