    Been a while.......

    Hello. Still got the chipped E92 Simon?

    A trip in the vert...

    I wish....nope it would be great to but it's still not enough for some precious metal!!

    Cheers Mark - I should keep this a while unless something more interesting (and cheap) turns up! I realised after doing the Le Mans Classic that winning a million pounds, whilst fantastic, is no-where near enough to get the metal that I really want!!

    B10 touring

    Man, these are going up in price - a couple of years ago there was a similar mileage one in Cornwall for £12k. Lovely car and spec - if I had a big garage I would consider this together with a 560SEC that a friend is selling!!

    E39 530i - slate green

    Good that it doesn't have the Green leather also. I quite like the Alcantara seats. Rear seats are folders too - a rare option.

    A cool E36 .........

    Not for me, no matter how well done the mods are. E36's have been modded to the hilt over the years so much so that there is a class and a rarity about a superbly kept stock car - give me a 323i or 328i Sport touring in Avus blue or Silver over this one any day of the week.

    Thanks, it's a 328i manual with factory Mtec or Sport kit. One of the last built in summer 1999 and registered in 2000 hence the W plate. It's a stock car bar genuine Alpina alloys and gearknob. It ticked over 85000 miles on the way home from France. It's in great condition with no rust although not concourse. Avus blue with silver grey sports seats. With the wind deflector and two up you can happily drive all day at circa 70mph without any excessive drafts or noise. No need for an M3 in a vert as it has enough power. Will have owned it 5 years this autumn and luckily is a third/fun car so does only 1-2000 miles a year.

    Getting this thread back on track it was my first Le Mans trip - a friend did the full hit 24 hour this year and it is much more "full-on" by all accounts. I think I'd stick with the Classic.

    You can go next year - you'll have fun on yer own as it's not on again until 2020

    Possibly - the whole weekend was mind blowing - you could sit at the bar in our campsite within the circuit and watch amazing cars drive by. The racing was superb - no holes barred in stuff worth ridiculous amounts of money. Nice to see them being used as they were intended.

    Presume you mean the M850i rather than the event? Both were huge - the event in a good way!

    Thanks Mick - yes the 850i was not a great colour so would like to see it in various schemes before deciding. Here's some non BM stuff:

    ...the E36 that is, which has just done a 700 mile trouble free round trip to the Le Mans Classic and back. The car was faultless and great fun on the French roads even if we got completely baked in the afternoon sun!! It is an epic event and I have never seen so much precious metal in any one place at once - totally recommend it! Won't bore you with all the pics but here are some BMW related ones:

    Chester area meetup?

    Not enough notice for me as preparing for a road trip next week and can I suggest somewhere south Wirral so get more from Cheshire and North Wales. I've been to the Red Fox and that is far enough up!!
