That's Steve, first trip after an engine rebuild he parked next to me at Gaydon.

On his way to Germany, he will eventually end up at Buchloe :D

That's #128, the owner is on one of the Facebook groups and i think the BMW5 forums. Not sure if he's here though.

Yep that’s Steve alright.

He’s been enjoying some of the famous Alline passes as well.

Our B10 is also blue and has the reg B10 VSX, and was supposed to be transporting us to Paris next week, lol!!

Just checked and she is still in the local garage having all the suspension and subframe bushes renewed though!!
