Cheers lads for all the compliments!! It's a lovely colour combo alright. I waited 6 months to find this one when buying first. it had to be steel grey/imola red with SMG and low mileage. I really don't know why BMW discontinued the colour in 2003.

It has been meticulously maintained by myself and its previous owners and I think thats reflected in your comments.

Had somebody to look at it already this evening. I'd say it won't hang around too long.

Next, hmmmm nothing major for the time being. Have a 16V Corrado that I'll put back on the road until next year and might pick something up then when 08 stuff is a little cheaper.

Thinking along the lines of an 08 E92 335d or maybe an 07 Audi S3. My days of paying over a grand in "road" tax for our "roads" are gone!!
