Iím not picking faults but is your front plate ever so slightly squint? Itís a personal hate of mine lol.
Thanks, Colin. The plate is mounted squarely on the plinth, I think it is just the shadow to the right of it that makes it look askew.

Thanks Mandy. The car is predictably very different to the E92. I've not driven too much as yet, but it feels noticeably more planted and stable...and speed and power under acceleration is in a different league. I'm thoroughly enjoying the experience!
I have no negatives to report whatsoever. It feels extremely well put together and overall a more polished product, but with only 15,000 miles on it, that's to be expected. I love all the gadgets, surround view, HUD, the new Idrive6 and all of Ian's other little enhancements...and of course the dct.
The car is currently with CLP Automotive, as below and they have just lowered it on eibachs and fitted 12mm spacers all around.
I have the boot spoiler on order, and also plan a front splitter and perhaps other carbon bits.

Thanks...SO was definitely on my list when I was looking, but having the car owned and fettled by Ian, made it an easy decision!

Well done Sonny. You was pondering about jumping ship when I bought my 1st M4 2 and half years ago at the birstal meet. Glad you finally did it and you didn't even need a test drive in mine

Glad you got the spec you wanted. Especially surround view. No scuffs ever again lol

Looking forward to seeing it at the next meet, Nottingham stratstone meet perhaps

More carbon planned, as well as a change of wheels... ultimately this is the sort of look I am after...

Thanks Jay...a change has been on the cards for some time, as you know! As it turns out I sold mine, at just the right time to catch the sale of Ian's. His was the only one I saw that had the combo of low miles and high spec. And yes surround view is fantastic. When I saw how it worked on yours I knew I had to have it!
I only ever drove one when they launched in 2014. I really didn't need to drive one to know if love it...I was right. The speed, power, poise and sheer sophistication is mesmerising...it is a worthy upgrade to the E92 in every way.
Plenty of meets coming up Jay...next one for me will be the Coventry Motofest.

Cars looking great in those pics Sonny. I must admit to being a bit envious.

At least it’s gone to a good home.

I would have been more than happy to keep it for another three years but health issues have got in the way. I was far from bored with it and was genuinely mortified to see it go.
