That looks lovely. I think the piano black trim looks brilliant with cream leather.

BMW are marketing a similar combo as the 'pure white' back on the new z4.

Fantastic car - congrats.

Ian pulled up at Cambs meet IN this bad boy and asked me what I noticed. I just thought it was his old car without G-POwer wheels till i looked closer ten mins later. It does look the nuts in the flesh. Little like my colour but nicer and deeper.

Congrats mate. Wonder who bought your old one.

I have the exact same trim and you will soon realise its a pain to keep dust free. Its also seems to scratch rather easily. However, it is beautiful and goes really nice with your interior

Love the colour, love the improved arse, love the interior.

Shiny, shiny, shiny!

Savour that because you won't see it again without some effort!

It's clearly stunning but is it new? I'm sure you've had that since I've been on here.

What have I missed?!

Ian's jad it 3-4 weeks now. First time he mentioned it was in this thread. Few of us at Cambs saw it and were suprised as he hadnt mentioned he was getting it!

Looks stunning in the flesh.

The old one is still at the Dealers, some minor work to be carried out, but the map will still be on it, so someone will get a surprise!

Yes it can be a pain, but I spend plenty of time in traffic, so I get plenty of time for the carwork, and it's a small price to pay.

Quote:
- Paul - Very nice - hows the performance differ from the old car?
Well as you can imagine the difference is quite dramatic,however it's still a awesome bit of kit.
The major difference is the MPG, my mapped car was certainly more efficient, probably by some 4-5 mpg!
I know the answer though and the extra power is just a useful consequence

Thanks Alan.
Well Bryan at http://www.driveandshine.co.uk/ gave it the once over, and that will provide a good base that will last some considerable time.
The odd top up with Blackfire or similar will keep it looking good.
I have some Dodojuice on order, I'll see how good that is.
Thanks.

It is very similar to my previous one which was Sapphire black, so it's easy not to notice the difference.
But yes it is new to me by about 3/4 wks.
