Looks really nice - and I feel like I have seen the car locally; what is your nearest M25 junction?

I do the M23 and then on to the M25 junction 9 or 10 most days on my commute to work?

Was that possibly me then?

I chose my 440i with Sapphire Black and Full Opal White interior. Just do not wear dark jeans. I always have a white towel in there ready for passengers that are wearing dark coloured jeans!

Thanks and thats a great idea with the white towel. Passengers might feel I am a little mad but sod them.

I am determined to keep this car as nice as possible.

Glacier silver would have been my preferred choice but BMW do not produce this car in this colour for some reason in the UK. I had an M135i in this colour and it looked as good as new after 3 years.

The Frozen Grey Matt would probably have proved a nightmare to maintain and repair if necessary. Even the dealers admitted so in their experience of seeing cars returned to them after a few years.

I am very happy with the black sapphire still though.

Beautiful! I have an E89 that I love. Interested how you go with the leather sealant. I've gone for black on a new S90 after having a 5 Series with cream leather seats. Dye transfer on the cream (untreated) seats was terrible & I never managed to get them back so interested how well the sealant prevents it happening or at least makes them easier to clean.

Why not coat the seats with Leather Coat (3mth durability) or Leather Shield (1year+ durability) - one of the claims is preventing dye transfer. Avoid the towel dilemma would be my opinion.

Coincidentally I've just coated my own seats today despite being a novice it was very straightforward and can't really go wrong.

I have bought some Dodo Juice Supernatural Leather Cleaner & the Supernatural Leather Sealant after a bit of research.
