    Evening All,

    I have just signed up to this site after searching "Best BMW Forum" and this being the top result.

    Just bought a 118d M-Sport in Black Sapphire (an upgrade from a Clio 1.4 Dynamique S), I pick it up on Wednesday after it has been valeted and mopped and had the performance metal pedals fitted etc.

    It has only done 22,000 miles and is very mint, pretty excited to get behind the wheel tbh!

    Here are a few pics from the dealer, i'll post more when I get the car and it's all sparkly .

    Btw, are there many meet ups/group drives in Essex?

    Also, has anyone got any suggestions regarding modifications I could make, I have some spare cash to spend on the car and have thought about tinting the rear windows for starters?

    Well I do live in Essex lol.

    The main reason for the switch was because the rubber pedals squeak under the shoe when pressing the clutch or the brake, the alloy pedals don't do this.

    Welcome to the forum Scottydog. Cars looking good and you should consider heading to the northampton meet on the 25th. I'm pretty new on here too and heading along to meet some faces... would be good not to be the only 1er going.
