    Many thanks again Keith :thumbsup: Yes I did really want the Silverstone with the chrome detailing rather than with the black trim / black alloys just my personal preference really

    A few weeks ago I laid on the drive under the car + got to work with metal cleaner + wire wool on the back box + tail pipes and then finished them off with a couple of coats of Finish Kare 1000p so those bits now look extra special shiny :drool:

    Hopefully they'll stay like that for a while

    Am working up now to taking off each wheel for a deep clean then again will try a couple of coats of the Big White on them

    This is my 3rd BMW but my 1st ever v8 - started with a 130i then an m135i but not for long the sound wasn't for me really missed that naturally aspirated sound track so had to scratch that v8 itch + there really was only 1 place to go to do that :bow:

    Yes this forum is so so useful top of my bookmarks list :beer:

    Welcome, and a lovely example you have there!

    I live just up the road from Sutherlands and only found out they even existed very recently.

    To be honest, I looked for a Melbourne red car originally but went for Silverstone in the end as that was the colour of the best example I could find for my money. And actually, it has really grown on me a colour to the point where I really like it now.

    I track mine regularly and love it. I'm actually taking it to Silverstone next month to acquaint it with the track that its colour is actually named after!

    Great picture that - don't they look the business our cars very purposeful going round a track

    I like the Melbourne red as well but my chances of finding a coupe in that were slim - not that there was loads of choice in Silverstone either

    A great place Sutherlands always something interesting quite a journey from Yorkshire but got a feeling I may go back one day but not just yet quite happy for now - enjoy your time at Silverstone
