I've seen more rocking horse st hehe

Seriously there are 5 for sale in Australia right now but you never, ever see them so to see it sat there with cobwebs and leaves all over it in a side street is a bit bonkers

Benefit here is cars don't rust so good chance it's structurally sound and in a daily decent condition as cars aren't generally ragged here due to the low speed tolerance and lack of tolerance for hooning.

It's Australian delivered with KM Speedo and it has Aircon and a Sunroof which is weird.

I'd be surprised if any still exist?

Who is keeping Senators with moon mileage and holes in the dash for 30 years?

There’ll be one. There always is!

It’s never going to happen.

Just one of those flights of fancy that take me from time to time.

I bet one of those specialist companies that keep old cars/police cars for use in period films/dramas will have one kicking around somewhere.

It’s not, great EV with modern classic potential.

Make sure you get Harman Kardon. Pro Nav, and Suite leather interior, smaller wheels help with ride quality

Post 2017 with Professional Navigation has iDrive 6 and Apple Carplay

I couldn’t face the i3, but that’s more the association with city hipsters than the car. I did seriously consider an i8, as they seem quite cool in a Tony Stark sort of way. But I bought a jag with a 5 litre v8 instead, because the missus preferred it.

I have no issue with hybrids/EVs, though. I just wish Jaguar had put the cx75 into production, as that was everything I wanted in a dream car and the missus would have been happy to have one on the driveway 😂

BMW 8 Series. I still can't make my mind up if I like the shape or not........ I think the car looks much better in some colours than others. Nor a fan of the matt blue or grey, but in the metallic orange, black or blue it looks good in my opinion.

it's strange - when the new 8-series came out the looks were.... challenging. Now it does look very good indeed

No pics, but have been looking at the pre face lift 630i from around 2007.

The looks have mellowed, and they seem to be fantastic value for money.

The killer in Ireland is the 1490 euro road tax!!!!

Had the M8 on holiday in miami, worst car in this bracket by far as ive driven them most of them, really try one before you buy but be sure to try the competition as well, its not a bad car per-sae, just that the other are way better, S63 coupe, Conti, even the RS7!

Exterior looks good tho.
