Fantastic looking car Axelf, you must live just round the corner from me. I'm originally from Ouston but living over in Spennymoor now. Bought my car from Cooper Durham too but that was 4yrs ago so ready for replacement now!

Did they give you a great deal with it being the end of the financial year? I'm fancying a new F31 330d but I'll have to wait a while until they drop in price.

Woah, I didn't realise these looked that good. The colour is stunning as well

Only thing I'd have to change would be the chrome grill and yellow angel eyes.

Thanks for the comments... I think coming from a diesel I notice the power more... Every one comments on the colour and when I am driving it the amount of people that stare is unbelievable . I don't think I will ever change anything on it, because to me it is perfect in every way, I even like the yellowish angel eyes, don't want to change them as I think it will look to after market.. I think this will probably be the only car I pay off and keep especially as there was only 450 brought to the UK...

very nice car!

Love the exhausts. Prefer them even over the M3. Dont like that you can see the back box on the M3. Much prefer the look on the 1M!

Cracking car.

Amazing car. A lady near me has one in that colour too and it looks great (shame the driver isn't fitter as that would just be automotive heaven!!).

Looks stunning ! Saw (and heard) a black one hooning it down Victoria Street not long after they came out (guess it was Park Lanes demonstrator ?) and thought.. if only they were DCT....

And now I am thinking .. if i go through with my 335 -> M3 project, and there is any cash left having got the car to where i want it, would't a wrap in that colour look the dogs?

These are definitely growing on me. What's it like to fling down the lanes? I'm still a bit dubious about the engine. Don't get me wrong, I love it in my 335i but just not sure it's suited to the nature of an M car. I see it as more of a cruiser than a screamer as it has plenty of low down torque but doesn't really like to be revved in standard form. Has the M-sport divisions fiddling with it made it a bit more exciting\manic?

What can I say..... Apart from this is the only car that puts a smile on my face every time I get in... Never had the chance to throw it about yet as the roads to wet.. With the engine just running normal the power delivery is just there when needed... One press of the M button on the steering wheel then it just turns in to an animal..... You feel it as soon as you press it.... It just screams " go on please press the loud pedal"" and when you do it just takes off... My brother in law has a 335i nothing done to it and he loves the speed of the 1M.... The only problem I am having is all the young lads in there cars trying to make me race them... I know it will wipe the floor with them so I don't even bother and I am 41 haha I just love being in it... I will defo be keeping it
