P1 International

Has anyone on this forum joined the Aussie P1 club yet?

I did some enquires with their local director and it looks like good value for money especially on the higher tier...They are getting some very impressive cars in too!

They have an M5 and a Z4M Coupe I think :-)

Erm, that's why they have the club. Example is owning an Aston Martin costs around $8k per year in insurance and $18K per year in service costs, not to mention depreciation...so, believe it or not, you actually SAVE money

YEAH man X3 stands for EXTREME FUN:rocks: I have beaten so many cars in traffic light races. Some mazda 3's 6's even a mr2 they don't realise that my x3 has sports suspension so i take corners with ease
Ill repeat to everyone who thinks my car is purple ie ASTRA IT IS FRIKKEN BROWN:mad:

Bingo. Could be something worthwhile if your that way inclinded. And you never have to worry about unloading the car or getting hammered on the depreciation, insurance or servicing costs. Not everything costs under $1k like BMW's.

I don't think the 5 series has mocca brown metallic. Similar ones ive seen but not the same. Mocca looks much better in person.

On another note, yeah feel very lucky to be getting a 335, i hope its mid this year, im waiting for the m-sports kit to be made official so i can put an order.

awesome. must be a diff brown on the 5 series.

my dad just ordered a 325 coupe. he didnt want the kit, but i'm convincing him to get the aero kit lip (check out the other post)... he is 60, so sportiness is not his top priority... hehe m sport kit looks pretty cool - what colour you getting?

Also, cars that are higher off the ground feel like they're going slower than they are. Use a go-kart as an example - you can be doing 50 in one and it feels like you are doing 150!
