They are superb cars for the money you'll love her, sad to let mine go recently but got a deal I couldn't refuse on a new M2
Sold my M140 within a day, just proves how popular they are.

My new toy. I look forward to looking after it as much as possible over the next year or two.

Nice, but Gary it's got too many doors!

Personally I think it looks more balanced than the ones with too few doors, but opinions vary

Not much love for the older ladies, nice to see the 39 M5 and that Mojave 38 is stunning.

My project, 34 535i Sport manual. Needs work - lots of it:

Nice! Whats the spec? I'm toying with either a 5 series or maybe a 4GC but unless they are high milers they seem to be holding their value.

You are in the same boat I was. I fancied a 530d but it had to have paddle shift. The ones I looked at didn't. I would have preferred a 535d but they are quite rare and command too much of a premium in my mind.

My 4GC is a 435d which is a late Feb car from this year, meaning it doesn't command the silly tax premium which came in on 1st April for £40k cars.

As standard they come with pro nav, electric memory seats and front and rear PDC which is nice.

In addition it has Harmon Kardon (a must for me), extended Bluetooth, wireless charging, freaky adaptive xenon's, electric mirrors, extended storage and a few other BMW connected type options.

Black leather. Would have preferred a lighter colour, but the rest of the car was right, so it's a compromise. Sunroof would have helped with brightening things up. I had Pano in my 330d and it was brilliant.

It's pre the LCI update which changed the lights, but also command a premium I didn't want to pay

So far I'm enjoying it very much. The 5 would have been lovely to waft along on long journeys, but this is slightly less barge like in my opinion.
