After looking at so many different types of cars; I have finally settled to buy this 4 door beast! Suits my needs as I have a 5 month old son; hence getting rid of my beloved E46 M3.

1 previous owner - Christian; the Team Principal of Red Bull Racing. £77K brand new in early 2006 with an endless list of options. Only 14K miles on it.

Here are some pictures for a start; best I can do in the short notice since I only picked it up last week.









And after a small mod today; it looks very different again.





Hope you guys love it:) All the way from London, UK....

Jerome

Lovely mate! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for that London meet too! I may venture up to it myself. Hopefully have my E60 M5 by then. If not, i may just come in the E46 if that's ok? Let you all show me up no end!!

Nice to see another UK citizen on here!! Welcome bro! :)

Nice colour.
I am in the same boat, got the M5 becos of my little one and unless I can find a baby seat that can go into a 997TT's back seat, can't think of a better car to get

Welcome. With the M5, the journey is truly better than the destination.

Looks great bro, congratulations. Nice thinking on the lights.

You're a brave man at $8/gallon. 535d would be in my future if I ever returned to England.

Drive safely but punish any drivers that need educating.

You'll love this car more and more with every mile, juts remember to keep 10W-60 in the trunk/boot.
