Registered on the forum some time ago looking for some details and since then have been in and out of the UK on business without actually managing to buy a car (7 of the last 9 months living out of a suitcase in hotels in the middle east...yeesh!!) Anyhoo my contracts are coming to a close and I decided to treat myself to a present before hitting back on UK shores (I land on Sunday July 1st).
I just put a deposit down on this:

I have been searching for a facelift 330 convertible for some time now and whilst this doesnt check EVERY box I wanted (specifically wanted red leather, automatic, and navigation) its a pretty damn solid example I think.
The owner is a great bloke I have been dealing with in Northern Ireland so I will have to fly over and ferry back then drive to London to get it home but I'm actually looking forward to the trip!
Usually I am VERY skeptical about handing over money without seeing a car blind and I am always the first to warn against it to be fair, but he's been fantastic as a seller. Answered every question in detail over and above what I have actually asked him and posted a video on youtube with a walk around the car and the only minor fault carefully pointed out.
slight modifications but nothing too garish: wheels, dropped a few cm, black grills, halo rings and HID lamps. I think looks wise the only thing I would want to potentially change is a full interior swap out to red leather (on that note... anyone got a full set of red heated electric leathers lying around??? :P )
I'm a relatively avid forum user so I think I will be floating around these parts a fair bit from now on. I pick up the car in a couple of weeks so may well do a little "journey thread" when I do.
right i'll stop babbling now!
Roger roger, Faz waving to all and signing out!
