My new BMW 440i M Sport
 
I picked it up on March the 3rd having waited 3 long months!

Loving the car at the minute, the engine and auto gearbox are brilliant.

The black car with the full white leather goes well I think. Love it!

The dealer didn't wash the car as instructed, I picked it up dirty!
Done the full process except the exterior polish, the car simply did not need a polish just yet, I will wait a few months when I notice a few more light marks and swirls.
I topped it with OCD Nebula then finished with a mix of BSD and Gyeon Cure. It worked well and beads very good!

Unfortunately I did not get the SLR camera out, the weather weren't the greatest and it does ruin the pictures and reflections. When the sun comes out i'll get some better shots!

That is nothing short of stunning...!

Literally exactly the spec I would go for!

I would love to pit up against one of these, see if I made the right or wrong choice going with the S5...!

Who am I kidding...I wouldn't complain if I ended up with either :P

Thanks DrEskimo.

It is the BMW equivalent of the S5... To be fair I wouldn't of mind either the BMW 440, S5 or the C43 but in the end I am a BMW rear wheel drive guy and I also got a fantastic deal of just under 10k off a factory build and 2.9 apr. no brainer!

I have a friend with an 08 S5 Coupe and we are waiting till mine is run in for a little straight line accelaration comparison. Do you have the newer V6 turbo version?

Nice specs! These cars with a tune can put down good power.

Congrats!

Very smart.

Lovely motor fella, I was given a four series as a loan car from BMW and their auto gearboxes are fantastic, very quick on up shifts and down shifts and very snappy. IMO BMW make one of the best powertrains in the business. I also like the color combo of the interior, don't forget to use die block on the seats.:thumb:

That sounds like a cracking deal. I was looking in November last year and didn't get much discount, hence went for the S5.

Nah I have the middle of the those two models! It's not the older V8, and not the new V6 turbo, but the V6 supercharged.
