    F30 330d M Sport...

    In the real world a 320d would probably be just as quick....

    F30 330d M Sport...

    Exactly this, I'm actually quite a fan of a powerful diesel having had a few myself but the power delivery and driving experience just doesn't compare to a big petrol imo, an f30 330d would probably leave my 540i for dust but get the 540i up to about 3000rpm in third gear and give it a bootful and it's an experience I don't think many diesels could match for driving pleasure.
  3. I tried a few classic insurers for my 540 (I can't remember who though, sorry!), one of them said it wasn't old enough and the other quotes I had were higher than the Go Compare type websites so I ended up with a normal policy, luckily I've got two lots of full no claims.

    Not long ago me and a mate were talking about how well my Mondeo handles despite the very simple suspension set up, it's nearly as heavy as the e39 yet holds the road just as well and feels a lots more 'pointy' and precise, to be fair it doesn't have the ride quality of the e39 but also has much lower profile tyres.
  5. I'll be honest, I couldn't say, the mate mentioned above looked into it when he had his compact and decided that it was more effort than it was worth, even more so when you can buy a coupe for the same sort of money as a compact.
  6. You can but you have to change everything; Wings, bonnet, bumper, lights, slam panel, arch liners and underguards. All bolt on stuff but a lot of it! I quite like the compact though to be honest, my mate had one in hellrot red, it was only a 316 but was a really fun car to chuck down a B road.

    Misplaced your BMW?

    £2750 ain't bad for an old 323i though!
  8. I've saved that advert and might just copy and paste the description when the time comes to sell my 540....

    If I had the £££

    Nope, not at all, supercars do absolutely nothing at all for me, my missus boss hasn't long bought a Mclaren 570s and when he offered me a run out in it I asked if we could go in his 'runabout' M2 instead. Give me an old Ford or very fast saloon of some description instead. Oh, and when I was eight I wanted a Transit van, I've realised that dream....

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    That looks bloody superb!
  11. I had this at my previous job; Office ringing and ringing, me refusing to pick up because I'm driving, someone in the office leaving an arsey answerphone message because I'm not answering, me losing my rag and going back to the office for a full blown argument, then a memo going round the week after saying that using a phone whilst driving a company vehicle is prohibited....

    E39 530D Breaking or Sale

    If it does get broken I'll have the headlining, pillar trims, interior lights and sun visors etc. If I had the space I'd probably have the whole car but I'm full up at the moment.
  13. Any fault codes?

    Book Your MOT In Northern Ireland!

    My diesel Mondeo has a straight through exhuast as well as a few other 'go faster' bits so I was shatting myself a bit when the mot guy did the smoke test, it still passed with flying colours.
