    Now that is a nice colour combo (yep, even on a Beamer)

    Recommend you treat the numerous roof seals to keep them supple and watertight

    Ps nice garage!

    If that beastie is no longer (or maybe no more than a foot longer) than my SLK I'll be cursing!! I did not even look at BM convertibles as I did not know they did a tin top, plus my experience of an M3 Evo with the awful steptronic gearbox 20 years ago put me off them for life!

    not a big b m fan as I said before but for the age this is spotless , and very lively , although it’s not auto but I have 2 big auto oil burners sitting around , I think the owner must have even polished the chassis lol

    Judas!

    I had a BM as a work hire a few weeks ago. brand new 540. all the bells and whistles. I felt daft figuring out how to even get it started.
    Horrible car to drive and most uncomfortable.

    That said. I wish you joy with your affair. We do expect some loyalty in the long run to the MB marque.

    I think that's one of the nicest 3 series ever made. For me if it had the I6 engine it would be near perfect (for a BMW).

    I still have 2 mb at my disposal , just bought this as a little birthday present to myself. It’s a bit more sporty than my trusty old cls although looking
    ahead I think the days of the bigger juice drinkers are nearing an end.
    Also surprised myself buying petrol as diesel is in my blood since I was driving tk bedfords since I was about 12. Long time ago now.

    First day it’s been dry enough to get it out and get the roof down to have a we check over , then 10 minutes later
    it started to rain.
