    Hello all,
    Been a member on here for a few months while I did my homework before buying my first BMW.

    Finally picked one up yesterday

    Used Cars - 2010 BMW 5 Series 520d M Sport Business Edition 5dr Step Auto [177] - SAT NAV - LEATHER Grey

    Absolutely loving it so far and wondering why I didn't get one before.

    For that money I would have got the 530 or 535 they had, you'll find the 520 a bit gutless but each to their own.

    I looked at a 535d but decided that the extra outlay, tax, insurance and running costs were not worth it for what I use the car for. I had a 150BHP Vectra before and was happy with that so sure this one will be fine for us.

    funny you should ask that, the last meet I've been to a meet from this forum was early last year sometime, then some if not most of the people from here moved to another BMW website a few months ago, but they do organise meets and stuff. If there is a meet in Portsmouth, it will most likely be at Portsdown hill (mickey burger van) or Southsea somewhere.

    I haven't been active on here much so can't comment on recent meets!

    What site have they all moved on to? I haven't had a monster burger in ages although the waist line tells a different story. I'm always up for a brew and a chinwag, need to get the car Ceramic coated first so it's nice and clean.
