Haha we had the mrs white ds3. Staying in the dales but took a trip across.
Car looks awesome in the flesh mate.
Still don't think I'd have the nuts to buy it in that colour.
Didn't want to say location because you never know who's watching lol

Ah that's cool I don't live there but thanks for the thought car is usually tucked up and locked away in the garage.

I couldn't daily the colour, not because I don't like it, but for paranoia reasons, our previous F80 was Silverstone and my wife used it every day, this ones probably about 4-5 days a month

Ah fair enough, going to be checking out a few m4s on Monday on way back.
Absolutely stuck for colour choices, but definitely don't want something as lary as that, as nice as it is

Nice! Are you going to change the M140i for it?

Mineral white or Silverstone are my favourite of the normal colours on the more subtle tone.

I love Austin yellow too, amazing colour. Or if you go individual theres some lovely greys like Nardo...

Well I'm getting married in august so the mrs is doing her nut about me changing cars again, plus I'm about 3k in negative so may hold off if I can't get a decent deal.
Seen a Silverstone comp pack and a mineral white, 2 great colours.
Saw a white comp pack m4 in Glenridding aswell

Oh I wonder if that was SimonH he is regularly around that area... HUT at the end of the plate..

I came from an M135i which I had for 28 months, the M3 was a sizeable jump in money but oh boy are they worth it, fantastic cars!!

Good to know someone has done the same, would love a new one but not got the money for a decent deposit at the momemt to bring the monthlies down from mortgage money lol.

I think it was HUT at the end. Lovely car, wish I'd stop seeing them, makes me want to get one even more haha

The deals have definately dried up compared to what they were... Not sure where you are located but we try and have regular meets and drives in this area and with the Scottish lads too, really makes owing one even more special, this was taken 2 weeks ago on a Lake District tour.

Be good to have you along!

Ah man that's just an overload right there lol.
Im actually located in Sussex so a fair way for a local meet lol.
Just wondering if I'm doing the right thing wanting to swap the car after only 3-4 months.
It's a great little car but it's certainly no M car and it does have some annoying little niggles.
May hold off until after the wedding and try and pick up a pre reg or something.
Seen one local to me but the monthlies were nearly 900 a month with mine thrown in, too much to justify when my mortgage isnt much more lol
