    Tsk tsk, you are clearly a number plate obliterator, but you seem to have forgotten to obliterate the plate on the silver merc . i expect awful things will happen now.

    Your right about the M I agree ,
    A few who saw it passed comment it’s badged up to m sport but was a se With bits added etc. that’s why I put the v5 on . A M8 4.4 600 bhp would be nice but it’s out of my budget by a long way. Lol.

    Nice car , it just goes to show that there is no need to purchase a newish car to get a decent looking motor now-a-days.

    Just one thing though , can you tell me where you purchased the string of sausages that you use to keep the garage door open.

    Was it Screwfix or Pets @ Home ?

    David prentice cars ,his wife drove for 2 yrs then one more owner , it has
    75000 mls , 2 yrs ago David last owner got bmw to fit those new alloys
    as the old 19” ones were prone to crack these don’t apparently, he also got them to do all bush’s front and rearwith new shocks all round and it’s a full bm service history all stamped up to date. It was in a 15000 mls service schedule but apart from the first one it got done every 7-10000 mls. So hopefully all’s good for few yrs.
