Ok, I've caved in to peer pressure.
No Kossovan visit for me.
It'll have to stay dirty until I get home Sat night, I'll clean it lovingly by hand on Sunday. That means no pics until then!

TBH Sheps, none of us give a shiney about your new car, after all this is a BMW Forum, the last thing we want, is someone banging on about his powerful Merc.

Agree with washing comments - dirty sponges full of grit = new car death.

Wash mitt, decent shampoo and drying with a microfibre towel only.

Can't wait to see pics! I'd seriously consider one of these over an M3/M5.

Should you not be using the hair of a blonde scandanavian virgin female to wash it? (doesnt matter if attached to head or not)

Is that not the rule?

Oh..

+1 - they look and sound awesome.

I can vouch what Andrew's (Barnynuts) sounded like at last years Staffs meet - especially when we raced up the private road at 140mph+! He was about 2 foot from my rear bumper, literally!!!!

JLR was 'trying' to follow behind in his hairdressers version

Not sure whose car was roaring loudest

EDIT: OK, it was defo his C63 making the most noise

New car - some pics added

Ok, it has been washed (although it's now pishing it down with rain).

A couple of quick shots, more when I can clean it and drive to a decent photoshoot location.

Company plate on it at the mo, will get mine on it in the next few weeks.

That's a mean looking machine you got there, nice The seats look great and I bet they last longer than BMW's leather in my last E92.

I think the '6.3 V8' written under the rev counter is quite amusing though as I'm sure the sound it puts out is confirmation enough.

Having the same text written under the fuel gauge would have been funny

I drove one a few months ago and yes the noise is incredible. The gearbox was fantastic too - didn't even have to brake at corners, drop a cog or too - engine break, foot down, arse out, shit me pants and off I went in a conundrum of epic noise.
