You have every reason to be excited! My mate who ordered one on the ridiculous deal that Eastern bmw were doing got his this week.

Singapore grey and de-badged. Very stealthy.

He came round last night and took me out for a blast. What a machine!!

It was very wet last night so getting the power down was an issue but the way the torque kicks in is unbelievable!

The one criticism I had of the car was that the interior felt dated compared to the 6 but that is easily fixed by not looking at it and just listening to the noise!!

The Dark Ash trim looks excellent in the flesh, as does the Fine Wood. I was surprised at how much they've improved the trim levels and I'd never pick one with the aluminium trim on the basis of that (brushed or not). The Piano Black looks fantastic too.

I know wood isn't to everyone's taste, but I do like the dark ash. It suits the M trim.

I seem to recall Autocars Steve Sutcliffe driving a 991 on snow with those Michelins and rival Pirellis and the difference between the two cars was visually massive!! :o

(no Pirelli jokes please)

YEP a MASIVE diference , thats why for such a powerful car I thought go for the best large tyre.

They tested the AMG V8 also and were able to use full power in that car using these 20" michelins.

Girls blouse.

Cars under two hundred horse power don't need winter tyres... snow socks will suffice

Thats the one I had in mind - superb vid. +++
Yea Ian, I saw it and thought "Those wheels and tyres would look good and do a good job".

The size goes with the car IMO. May not appeal to the "Girls Blouse" brigade though.;)
