One of the few BMWs I would actually own!

Fantastic shape, it hasn't aged a bit. No silly big wheels or tyres just perfect.

Your car looks brilliant, will keep my eye on this thread... I concur with above... Get some videos of the exhaust!!!!


Mmmmm

Small update today, one wheel had been very badly kerbed (forgot to take photo, doh!) so here it is on the right fresh from the refurb place, the other wheel was sent with it to match. Not too far off in my book but none of them are original and you can by 4 new ones from BMW and they will all be different shades, so, good enough for me!

This only re-enforced my opinion that i need an M5 in my collection. Possibly an e60 for me but even so- this car, properly serviced with a decent exhaust and a quality air filter and you're absolutely golden.

Lovely, lovely car! Keep us informed please. Great piece of kit.

Just popped into the bodyshop and it's all back together and should be polished later today. The guy who does the polishing is a bit of a detailing nut himself so wants to take his time over it... Can't wait...
