    Farewell and thanks

    Congratulations on a new car! Enjoy! Friend of mine has a Superb SE, diesel, manual and it is a fantastic car, I found it being quite, very torque and actually very economical. I was too at some point looking at these but at that moment the money they were worse (4x4, DSG, 190bhp and very well speeced) it would be a BMW territory.
  2. Quite a few Lexus owners complain about it - when at full lock you get a "skipping" effect like a drag (understeer). I usually have it at work underground car park where the surface is damp and cold, once on the open road car holds the road good without understeering effect. People say it is a suspension geometry set up, not convinced though.

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    What cars some of you had! Fantastic collection gents! I am jealous here but happy for you! My history is much simpler, our first BMW was an e34 520i in manual form, my dad still has it! Next one was a 320d Auto, good car to drive but very unreliable, lots of money was spent on it and at the end I p/x for Honda Civic and thought will never go back to BMW: But 10 months later of owning a Civic I just couldn't resist and p/x for a nice e39 525d manual, it was a nice car and I had it for almost 4 years! After I sold an e39 I bought myself a Passat and was happy with it first month and then wanted to go back to BMW, finally I convinced my wife that she can keep my Passat (she loved it) and I will get another BMW so it was this time an e60, great car, the most reliable car I had so far, loved it but little rust started appearing and I had to get something else! I am sure I am not done with BMW yet, I am really tempted by g30 x-drive 530d probably!

    New here with E46 330i

    Great looking car, welcome to the forum!
  7. Thank you, it will be more help in e60 section. People still put HIDs in as they really do make the difference but you need to have a friendly Mechanic to carry on an MOT.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    HID was great in my car, the best upgrade I have done after changing tires to Non-runflat! I am not sure but check if HID converted cars will pass MOT under new rules.

    Low mileage E39 530i

    The car looks great! Did you see the mileage?! 32k!!! The car immaculate! I know this is an SE but still looks fresh and beautiful!
  10. Nuh, does not look like a Russian car, more like Romanian or Caucasus owner. lol!
  11. I can't wait to test mine, it is my 1st car with dual Xenon ( or any xenon) plus being Adaptive should be noticeable but do not get a chance to drive at night. I guess with days getting shorter it be happening very soon!
  12. How is that? Why? What are getting instead Dave?

    Thanks @L1011, it was good to meet another forum member and it was a pleasure having business with you. Hope the wheels will prove right and will look good on the car! Good luck and all the best! Vlady
