    SAAB 93 S LPT/Mazda MX5 MK1/Ford Puma Thunder
  1. BMW 640d Gran Coupe M Sport

    Just one of the cars on wish list. Criteria: Must be 2015 or newer (facelift model) Dark exterior colour with contrasting light interior preferred. Less than 20k Miles M Sport Plus pack wanted Budget range £30k - 34k In excellent condition (you know I'm fussy) I will travel for the right car If you don't have one but know if someone that does (or where else to look), let me know. Thanks
  2. Dave, as Dan has put it, its a great CDP and worth that all day long. I'd have bought it but just an ES model. Would have snapped your are off a month ago.
  3. RIP Keith (Urquattro)

    RIP Keith.
  4. Project Lexus LS460

    Saab 93 and MX5 Mk1 Jay. Looking for petrol BMW though (see general discussion thread)
  5. Project Lexus LS460

  6. I know its a 5 series forum but there is a section at the bottom of the forum for other BMs. 6 series included, hence why there maybe someone who can advise. Agree with you on availability though. 640i rare so I may have to go back the the 535i (same engine but a little more choice). http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201707187495148?postcode=b610bq&sort=datedesc&model=5 SERIES&price-to=27500&advertising-location=at_cars&fuel-type=Petrol&maximum-mileage=25000&radius=1500&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&make=BMW&year-from=2014&transmission=Automatic&page=1 Prefer a darker dash though. Looks like I'll be slumming it a bit longer in the Saab
  7. Family saw a Mustang yesterday. Big NO from them! Anyone have any experience of a 640i Gran Coupe? This is at the top of the list, ahead of a 535i now. Quite like the 2015 headlights on them (facelift) but out of budget
  8. Ford Mustang V8 it is then Er, no. 535i sounds ideal, as does the Merc E400. Lexus did intrigue me but I'm not a fan of CVT gearboxes. OK, you've done, it. I'm TALKED out of a 535d. Although my local dealer then decided to entice me with a nice 640d. Still diesel. Title edited. I do about 15k miles a year now and need space for the family. Must be petrol and appeal to the badge snobs in my house (I'd really like a petrol Superb but it won't cut the mustard).
  9. Not afraid of black, given my last BMW was admired I've cancelled the order. I'm going down the petrol route (never had a Diesel before). I did pop into the local Volvo dealer to take a closer look at the new S90. Dealer demonstrators seem great value and the car looks lovely. Then, the salesman took me out and started one up! It sounded very agricultural and I think Volvo have scored an own goal, not offering a petrol equivalent (bar the expensive hybrid).
  10. I live in a nice part of Worcestershire. There is quite a bit of money 3 miles away. Maybe where there brass, there's the opportunity to for others to take, what isn't rightfully theirs. Anyhow, I think I'm going to cancel and let this diesel debate follow through. It's just a shame that I feel I cannot get what I really want.
  11. Two friends separately but could be the same gang
  12. Thanks R, Heres the car in question https://www.cooperbmw.co.uk/vehicles/5-series/5-series-30-d-m-sport/5-series-30-d-m-sport-mj15dpu-3051039/ Picked specifically for the M Sport Plus package (has HK) but no HUD. Adaptive drive is very rare and I cannot find one. I'd be looking to swap out the runflats for normal tyres to help noise and comfort. Made a huge difference on my GTR.
  13. Thanks. I get that and that frightens me too but there is such a limited petrol choice for car that are 2 years old. Maybe I should hang fire.
  14. Last week, I placed a holding deposit on another (newer) GTR. I was due to see it today, at a Nissan garage many miles away, but this happened last weekend, near me. https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=23&t=1686044 (if you read it, I live 20 mins from Solihull and 5 mins from Barnt Green). A friend of mine had his Audi S5 stolen (key cloned) last year from his driveway in Solihull and another, a few weeks ago, had his Focus RS MK3 (and his motorbike) taken violently at 3am (3 masked men and a baseball bat). It's now spooked me. I have now dropped the GTR and decided its not worth risking on many levels. I still miss my 530i champagne, so have been looking for another 5 series. The only one that has me tickled is a 535d M Sport saloon. Am I mad to go for one, given all the press? It's from a BMW dealer, 2 years old, nicely spec'd and invisible! Anyone have any experience or thoughts? I placed a refundable holding deposit on it and will view tomorrow. It's not very local so appreciate a little feedback
  15. 2nd car???? Golf R, Focus RS, C4S????

    Go for it. I was thinking of a Golf R type car but seems a thieves favourite so looking at an Audi A7, Merc CLS and 640 GC
