Are you sure that is a 2010 model? My roof bars are almost flush with the roofline and look really sleek with absolutely no need to remove them. Perhaps they changed the design during 2010 - mine is June 2010.

Don't think there was any change to the roof bars with the facelift - unless the facelift extended into the hairline?

Stunning car, OP

Cheers mate, I'll be sorry to see the e90 330i go, it's a great car in many ways and only lacking in room, hence the reason for a 'Touring'

A 335i Touring would have fitted the bill, though they are even more hard to come by than 335d's.

Cooper Cobham are on the whole a decent dealership. I've had a few negative run ins with them but they went to great pains to put it right. I've also had them do quite a lot of warranty work on the old motor.

Never dealt with their sales guys though ..

Hi

I hope i have got this 100% right in as much the cars that commence with Y reg, are predominantly ex management, or ex demonstrator cars that have been pre BMW registered and therefore can be highly specked and therefore CAN be highly desirable , but also can be a pain in the arse to try and obtain, which in my case i gave up on. http://www.z4-forum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=38215

Sorry to cyprio for unintentionally hi jacking your thread, car looks great, Enjoy
