That add on spoiler just looks naff though, it looks like its been styled on an etch-a-sketch and spoils (pun intended) the look of a superb special edition Sad

bet you had fun though! Laughing

Just beautiful! I love the akropovic exhausts, I bet they sound awesome - I've always used them on my bikes (race and personal)!

I wonder just how much that that VRM is worth too - and if 'D3 BMW' is still available!?!?!

I ran a number plate check for this plate last week, Mark, and it is already on a 2009 black D3 coupe! Crying or Very sad

No video I'm afraid.

It is VERY quick and definitely drives well.

However, It was completely throwing it down and only had a quick drive so didn't push things too hard - will definitely be looking to take it out again when dry and so I can get to know it better.

Steering is direct, handling very solid.

The interior makes you smile - particularly liked looking in the rear view mirror and seeing the blue and green stripe on the rear seat (not to mention the rear wing).

I must admit the interior is spot on, some lovely little touches. And them seats Embarassed

The exhaust note is not as i expected, judging what the bikes sound like
