Just joined today. I'm collecting my new car tomorrow. It's a 2004 Black Sapphire 525d E60. Dark tan, (far better description than Truffle Brown), Dakota cow skin, heated & massaging seats, 18" alloys, privacy rear glass, front/rear pdc, through load system etc etc.
Previously owned an E34 525i 14 yrs ago and a 1997 728i around 8 years ago. Have also owned a couple of Audi's and 4 Benz's in the last few years. Never want to see another star badge on my bonnet, mainly due to rust and other expensive problems.
Just PX'd a 2008 Vectra for the BMW. Fantastic car for reliability and economy. Obviously a bit bland, slow, and at the very bottom of the "Cool Wall" !! Bought it at 8 months old for £6999 and got £5000 px at 3 years old and 53k miles. Good result, i thought.
Looking forward to receiving lots of free help and advice.
