Actually the M car is not red :wink: . So don't worry Steve. :D. It may be you next time round. :D :D :D ALPINA are obviously fantastic. However lets not kid our selves a D3 is not going to beat a well driven M6 ever. Now im not making this statement as an M6 owner but as a realist. I will concede ...

im really liking the Touring more and more. I need a more sensible daily driver as the m6 is a bit bonkers. but then again i could get a 2nd hand b5 cheaper :?

i know it sounds a lot but procede v3 is now pushing 420bhp on standard internals.

the B3 has mahle pistons , so it can have the boost turned right up.

i would think 500hp in a postvan weighing about 2 packs of spuds would be pretty quick lol.

Rather drive the M6 though :wink:

The M6 is a very very fast car. on m5/6board gustav has raced them against Gallardos, F430s, M5s, B5s etc and its beat them all. It has true supercar pace. It is a supercar, although i am a litttle bit biased :D

Still would also like a B5s to finish off the fleet, or a B3 Biturbo Touring.... 8)

This is when you get hammered with lots and lots of depreciation. When i have financed them, i tend to keep them longer. So even if it costs me interest i don...

no photos of the engine or interior? You've got to be a bit suspicious. The front spoiler looks a bit rough but otherwise cosmetically it seems OK. "no history but mileage seems genuine"??? Are you going to have a look at it? Duncan the guy did say as the front is so low its always scrapping speed ...

You should see the Gumball entry fee these days Dunk... more like £35k :shock: But I always loved watching Ant and Pete's onboard videos, nice to have a more "ordinary" car stick it to all the exotics.
