    Hi guys, new here, can some BMW pros tell me what one this is?
    Just picked it up from Sheffield for a neat £3600.
    Its was sold as a 2 series 5 litre, had a quick google, and it adds up the 2 is the series and the other number is the litre engine, i think the previous seller took the i off it, definitely a petrol, but for a 5 litre its quite slow and i was beaten off the line by a Kia Cee'd.

    Quite disappointed with the speed, but it looks phenomenal.

    Here she is.



    Cheers guys.


    Mr.T

    Cheers mate, shes a looker, going to book her into stratstone and get her re-mapped, see if it helps the performance, might just need to polish the engine.

    made me smile so much, looking at the exhaust it must be the extra small sports one to save on weight.

    Looks awesome, Ive heard those awesome 5 litre engines are incredibly reliable too, head gaskets last 300,000 miles without replacement :P

    Stunning - what a beast. I think you should get a couple of M badges for her.
