  1. Orient Blue is a facelift colour not too dissimilar to Biarritz Blue. There is also MIdnight Blue I used to own a 530i SE Individual Auto in Orient with Champagne leather heated sport seats with electric memory, folding rear seats, DSP etc etc, but no blinds. I personally find E39 sport seats better than Comforts. As others have said it's a very difficult search but good luck.
  2. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Yes Active Tourer is the 5 seater and Gran Tourer the lwb 7 seater - lots of room in them and are front wheel drive
  3. Back in an ‘M’...

    Congratulations on your wife's (your) new toy! Is that a very dark green?
  4. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    You can get great deals on BMW 2 Series Gran Tourers. They do a 218i, 220i and 225xi plus the usual diesels in automatic form. Bid hard and should come in on budget.
  5. Some E65 7 series have this option as do some E60/61 but were rarely ticked options - even rarer in an E38/39 which were called Active seat base function iirc
  6. Considering a 'vert

    Looks like a bargain Ray - what's the spec for those who may be interested?
  7. Might be worth trying the E36/46 buy/sell page on Facebook - not a great place but lots of people on it!
  8. Considering a 'vert

    Here's a few more: Mtec with individual leather - bid hard but a lovely looking motor: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C932310 This one ticks all the boxes and would be my choice - Mtec and manual plus has a hardtop too if no garage to keep it in: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1999-BMW-328I-CONVERTIBLE-M-SPORT-INDIVIDUAL-/273007448462?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 Bit of a marmite colour this one: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C877504
  9. Considering a 'vert

    If it was Orient or Monaco blue or black or Sparkling Graphite I would be interested but silver and grey is no no for me. The grey is not as nice as the silver grey of the E36. Thanks for the info though.
  10. Considering a 'vert

    Have a chat with Ray(mond) about Saab's - he's been saunaring for years
  11. Considering a 'vert

    Is it up for sale? That's cheap if you ask me!
  12. New F11 530d owner

    Sounds like a great spec - is it Adaptive Drive or VDC (Variable Damper Control)? Adaptive Drive is very rare and includes VDC but adds hydraulic anti roll bars into the mix
  13. Considering a 'vert

    A fun summer thing you say. I like the 330ci facelifts but would have the 6 speed manual only. It's great to have a naturally aspirated straight six with a proper gearbox! Prices on the rise on good sub 100k mile E36 328i's - mine's a blast. Factory Mtec manual is the one to go for:-
  14. My wheels inerds were refurbished by BMW after only three winters - they are starting to corrode again. Not a motor boat fan me - more of a raggy (sail boat for those who don't know)
  15. Check out the spec on this F11!

    Comfort seats can be found if you look hard - ventilated and/or massaging ones are rare. My F11 has Comfort seats and fantastic they are too!
