A new toy ....

My 335d is a great all rounder, but ......... there are times when I find it a bit 'uninspiring'.

So I bought this little rocket today to complement the D. Damn she's fast! :rocks:

It scares me, but I love it

That noise! That engine again! That waggling rear end! Sport button! ........ :rocks:

I was sat in one of those at a dealer yesterday Nick. Seriously tempted to trade mine for one and get a runaround for work.

I am a BBS LM fan. However, BBS GmbH is under receivership at the moment so can't get the LMs until after things get resolved.

In the interim, I've gone for a set of OEM CSLs until the LMs are available again.

Teaser of my mods .......

It's nothing compared to a few City colleages of mine who went out and bought themselves Lamborghinis and F430s with part of their bonus!

Its only ever scary when you are sitting in the 'wrong' seat I thought when you said you were going for a spin, you would be doing the driving!
