Bmw 640 Journey thread

Well i sold my beloved LHD e46 m3 a few months ago and i was planning on waiting for the right e90 m3 to come on the market. Sadly my daily drive was hit last week and was sent to the scrap yard in the sky. This forced my hand and i had to make a call. So i bought a stunning deep sea blue 640.

The plan is to give it a deep deep deep clean and paint correction over the next few months. No massive plans for the car as it's not something i want to throw money at however on the list are.

Spacers
Slight drop 10mm
650 exhaust tips
650 rear diffusers
650 or CF rear spoiler
possibly gloss black grills all around.




I will get some better photos up soon, thanks for viewing :thumbsup:

I'm not usually a big fan of lighter coloured leather but that does look a cracking combo and has come up an absolute treat.

How come you don't love it..? Engine? Looks? Performance?
