The grey (Dravit) is awesome, it actually goes gold in the sun...



I'm trying to work out who you are and where you know me from...!

Edit: I think I've figured it out - was it one of the Hants PH runs?

Better in sunlight.

It was a South Coast one I think, front on pic taken from a distance by someone on a run, my blue VXR, your 123d then a liquid yellow Megane R26.

Its at home so will dig out later.

She's getting there... engine and gearbox remap done. Hybrid turbo and suspension tweaks still to go.

The power delivery is brutal.

Nice! Bet that’s ‘entertaining’ in the wet!
It can be, but it's like a totally different car. I'd suggest better to drive than any of the M4s I've tried.

Once the turbo and suspension is sorted it'll be a bit of an animal.

Best offer your services to M GbmH then...who knew they've been wasting their time all these years on chassis/drivetrain development.

Not my services, all I did was hand over my cash to the recommended people...

It's got similar power and noticeably more torque and I doubt M GbmH would let a car out of the factory sounding like mine.

Like I said, once the turbo is done and it's had the suspension work it's booked in for after Christmas, no M4 is keeping up. It won't be as comfortable or as quiet as the laid back M4, but it's not meant as a daily.

Love them, have had a BMW in my life for 7 straight years now!

Current company car - 330e M Sport

And my M3 - now owned over 4 years, longest I’ve kept any car (speaks volumes).

Great to see the BMW love although they really are everywhere these days?!

Great colour choice! Needs rear tints, though.

Thanks! I thought the same, that was day of delivery... 2 weeks later I had them retro-fitted.

Nice one. A lot of my colleagues did the same, as I recall adding tints put the list price over £40k, bumping up the VED which gets added straight to the lease costs. Was better to pay £150 to have it done locally.

My version of a mullet, business on the left, party on the right.

Z4 is a new addition last week, loving the straight 6 so far

Did we recently have a chat on BabyBM about your situation - and not using the car as much? ( Are you iladtani or similar on there? )

If so hope this was following my advice to wash and pamper it!

Was this aimed at me? If so, no it wasn't me, I don't have an account on Baby BMW!

Ah ok sorry - someone on there saying he was bored of his new M2 and didn't want to drive it anymore.

Definitely not me, I've somehow managed to do 6k miles in 4 months despite WFH!
