I know but my financial adviser advised against it as she is certain Halifax will perform another credit check just before they release the funds to see if anything has changed and/or if I have applied for more money. The BMW salesman hinted at the same and advised I wait it out. Not great I know but can't take the risk at the moment.

Sent you a pm

I don't know what to say except...

Riz drove a BMW M car and discovered what everyone else has been saying for 15 years*. :roflmao:

 

 

 


*I'm delighted for you, Riz, a very wise and nice choice.

He can't help the fact that he was brought up as a VAG-slag.......... At least he has been open enough to be brought back into the light.

I haven't bought it yet.... but realistically can't see anything that interests me in the current Volkswagen / Audi line-up.

My local tyre fitter owns a Yas Merino M3 CP and it looks the business with all the carbon bits. Roll on June 22nd. :)

Wait until you come to replace the rears on an M3..*. :roflmao:+++

 

*although if they’re the Michelin Pilot SS or 4S tyres, they’re not bad by the looks of it.  Black Circles says £257 each, fitted.

San Marino Blue with the exterior carbon pack looks amazing.

I'm having two rear tyres on my 420d next week, £404.00 for the pair. :unsure:

I agree, I prefer San Marino over Yas to be honest but depends on what stock is left when the time comes.... :D

£404 for rears on a 420d sounds perfectly usual to me.  I paid £432 for a pair of Dunlop SP Sport Maxx rears on my 520d (on 19" wheels which I suspect yours is too).

Good effort Riz. BMW’s are the nuts. I’d ponder one for our family car if I was sure the missus would take care of it. Given the state of the Passat, I don’t think she would!

Yes 19 inch, decided to stick with what the car was supplied with, these were not the cheapest either, some other runflats were about £220 each. STill they lasted 32k miles, so not too bad, much better than my last cars managed. +++

I'm not a fan of Yas Marina Blue, looks a bit washed out.......  Mexico or Riviera is IMO much nicer

Nice!  There was a darker blue CS parked there with an M5 Competition alongside when I was stood in that exact spot about 10 days ago.

Quick update folks......

not good news, after much thought I have decided to stick with my Golf R for the time being. My contract is due to end August so wan't to hold out and see if it will be extended or not before committing to a new car.

I have also decided to convert the garage into a dedicated home cinema which is going to eat some of my M3 funds :D

Moving house next week so have a lot to do.

Does anyone know when the new M3/M4 may be due? Current ones just don't do it for me :/

That far away? Hmmm, perhaps a re-think required. I really don't like the engine in the M3/M4, it just sounds awful :/
