I picked up my new M5 this morning in Glasgow!!! :happybirt
I've already stuck almost 200 miles on it and loved every one (although the trip to the petrol station after 138 miles was less pleasant! Why do dealers never give you a full tank?!)

I'll write more about it over the weekend and also upload some photos, but right now I'm off to enjoy it... :wroom:

Just arrived in London after an epic journey that included picking up a German hitch hiker on his way back from protesting against capitalism at the G8 summit! I couldn't bring myself to point out the irony of catching a lift in a £70,000 car to him... hiha

My girlfriend (who passed her test two months ago!) drove the last 180 miles and couldn't believe how amazing the car was. She now wants me to buy her one too... Doh!!! ouich

The colour combo I went for is Silverstone II with black leather and aluminium trim. Silverstone looks so much better in real life than I ever imagined, especially in today's Scottish sunshine (yes, we do get some occasionally, although I think the last time was in 1979!).

Off to bed now, but I promise to upload pictures and possibly some video tomorrow.

As nice as the thought of a cute, blonde teenager is, she was just a late starter and passed her test at 27... :D

Okay, I have LOADS of pics now... What's the best way to add them? Is the members' area best or should I just attach them to one of my posts?

Attach them there... the gallery shrinks the pics and makes them too small.
