    I do like that piano black trim against the oyster leather, very nice. I have the oyster and aluminium combo on my msport, i think id opt for your black if i had choice. Its also surprising how easy the leather is to clean and look tip top, even with 2 small kids

    I can imagine there a joy to drive, and may be able to afford have one next .Out of curiosity, What are servicing costs like in comparison?

    but you said you were looking at a 2.0? I have never drove a 6 cylinder bmw, imagine they are beautiful. I will one day, but not in the position financially at moment to own one. To the purist i suppose your right about not being a real bmw until you hit he 6 pot category, but Ive had two 2.0 bm's a 3 series e90 and my current f10 both have been an absolute joy, just the way the bmw feels puts a smile on my face

    Noob with vibration issues - help!

    I had same issue with my old e90, the engine cover just wouldnt tighten down, and made a right rattle, did also give the impression of something more sincere

    Hi david, i think it varies tbh, mine went in about a month ago, it took just under a week at sytner oldbury (west midlands) i believe there's a seperate thread on here regarding egr recall

    The amount of premium brand cars being taken around my area is frightening, police cant get a grip on it. most common one is breaking into properties late at night/ early hours and taking keys. I have a disklok on mine a bit of a fuss everytime i get into my car but gives them another hurdle to cross i suppose. The telescopic posts are popping up alot round my area too.

    Hi, new (ish) f10 owner

    Hi everyone, Ive got myself a 63 plate 520d m sport, auto. The car is silver, and has oyster/dakota leather interior, xenons and a host of other nice little bits, plus the pro nav system which i was adamant i wanted. The car has been fully bmw maintained from new, with a catalogue of invoices for tyres, servicing etc. This is my second bmw my first being an e90 which was a great car, just was getting a little tired and we needed something a little bigger. Look forward to posting. Thanks!
