I'll happily be the first to ask the obvious.....WHERE ARE THE PICS? I'm afraid I find such a request quite tasteless - bit like rubber-necking at the scene of an accident. One of our members has clearly had quite a big shunt and he has chosen to inform us of it. If he wanted to add pictures then h...

I will end up paying for an error with an insurance hike no doubt. :( First time I have been in a car when the air bags have inflated, front bags and side curtain bags.....frightened the life out of me! Tell you what though within 30 to 40 seconds BMW were on the phone ...

I asked a German friend if there was any chance of visiting this collection in June, when I am in Munich. This was his reply; Hello Brian, This collection is in a warehouse in the Munich area and belongs to BMW. There they store prototypes, pre-production cars, and also studies that never made it t...

The XD3 is fantastic. I know that it's not quite a traditional Alpina but it is exactly what I was looking for in a market that is becoming saturated with hot rod Chelsea tractors. IMHO Alpina have managed to inject just enough insane but with a touch of class and exclusivity. The absolute polar op...

Re: Test driven an M4 yestaday

I was slightly disappointed with the HUB display however the main reason why I could hardly see it was due to the fact that I was wearing polarising sunglasses!!!! I too was disappointed with the 'HUD' when wearing polarising sunglasses......BUT......I have just found out that if you go to the HUD ...
