finally spotted.....

After 15 months and 70,000 odd miles I have finally seen another car with the darkline rear lights!

Yesterday on the M4 between 16 and 15, it was a black 330d with the private plate of T12 ...

I have to say that we were both flat out, and the 330d absolutely killed me, its on another level completely.

I didnt expect there to me sooo much of a difference between the 320d and he 330d

4 cylinders vs 6 cylinders
~180bhp vs ~240bhp
380nm vs 520nm

... there's only ever going to be one winner in that contest!

The word black is not racist.

If your talking, you may say.. you know Jim, ''yeah the fat guy''.... or ''yeah the tall guy''.... or ''yeah the ginger guy''.... or ''Yeah the white guy''

or ''yeah the black guy''



Not racist. Far from it.
