With the impending arrival of a company car, we traded in my 750i Sport for this.

It will effectively be Mrs V8's daily transport and it is a little different from her Vectra but we are very pleased with the car. For the first time, we will be a 2 BMW household Very Happy Sadly, neither of them Alpinas Sad

Congrats on the new steed.
Should be a tad more frugal than the 750i?

It's not too bad on a run but with the gap between petrol and diesel, it's costing more per mile than the 750i, however we don't do many miles in it as we now have this....








520d ED turned up on Thurdsay after a relatively short wait (about 7 weeks). So far, I am very impressed.
