Tell me more about the car!!
- Turbo lag???
- Stick or paddles???
Let's go to the trackday the 2-nd of March.
You haven't sent the beast towards retirement, right?!
Well, hope to see you soon then.
Sorry to hear your diff problems.
Hope the doctor has the right cure and fix the problem.
Ed I test drove the car today, no turbolag at all the car is mental and just goes from stop up to max revs in each of the 6 gears before changing gear, (ME LIKE) it is so light in comparison to the M5 and dances around the corners, the salesman was sh1tting himself to be honest though, he looked visibly shaken when we got out of the car, he told me to slow down when I saw this big red sign on the dash computer but it turned out to be the speed limit warning
The test car had paddles but mine doesnt but it does have 6 speed sequential auto, wasnt impressed with the paddles be honest look a bit gay and too small and close together, almost like a couple of silver lobster claws behind the wheel.
Mine is Arctic Metallic silver with lemon leather interior and walnut burr trim, usual stuff satnav, adaptive headlights, active steering, tv, voice control , bluetooth, tv etc etc.
The main selling point for me was the 5 year/100,000 km service inclusive and repair, 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, 5 years free recovery service and 1 years full comp insurance................so basically all I will pay for for the next 5 years is tyres and glass, everything else is supplied by bmw all services and oil and parts etc, even brake pads and lights are covered
So thats me then guys some might say slowing down a bit, maybe so, the limiter cuts in at 240kmh but the 0-100kmh is astounding especially the first 0-60kmh just seems to want to go on and on. Should be getting the car in the next few days so will meet up and let you have a look then.
