Our Alpina is in the garage for some front bushes - originally this was due a week last Friday, but a 7 series turned out to need a lot more tlc than originally planned, so mine fell into the "too busy" bin...but, offered a courtesy car FOC to make up for it - bonus! (Don't normally need a car, as we have other options).

We did a deal for this weekend, & have spent it smoking around in an Orient Blue 520i, '99 vintage & 168k (169k now..) on the clock. What a splendid old bus, a couple of little glitches, but nothing a keen amateur couldn't fix (missing clips, needs a good scrub, o/s door doesn't central lock). My eldest lad is learning with http://www.under17-carclub.co.uk/ so we charged up to North Weald airfield & did some miles around there, & we're just back from an afternoon at the beach. Apart from an EML & a cough as we got off the ferry at Sandbanks, no problems at all.

(But, what a gutless slug, compared to the B10... Laughing )
