    Hi,

    New member here. I took delivery of my car on Thursday last week, so have a shiny new 318d Sportplus tourer.

    I went for the black, with black Dakota leather and black headlining. To say it is dark is a slight understatement.

    This is my first time in a BMW, and am pleasantly surprised that the 318's 143hp is not too shabby at all. In fact, compared with the 170hp Passat I had before this car, there is not a massive difference except the BMW handles 100% better.

    So all in all, (and it is only early days), I am a convert, just having difficulty getting used to the stop/start system. Still makes me check what has happened every time it turns the engine off!

    I look forward to being a member here.

    J

    Welcome aboard!

    An all black machine - nice!!

    all you need now is colour coded black alloys and you'll be like the stealth bomber!

    get some pics up before she sees too much road debris!

    It already has the dark chrome wheels and privacy glass. So it is as black as I could get it!

    It will get a clean on Saturday, and I will post up some better pictures
