My 230i

Post by GiantPete » Wed Nov 02, 2016 11:21 pm

Apparently it's in the country and I pick this up from the dealer next Friday, will try to get some photos on here.

Went for the manual box, Estoril Blue with the Ferric grey wheel finish, M Sport Plus pack, ticked most other options but kept the cloth/alcantara interior and manual seats and didn't go for variable sport steering or adaptive suspension.

Nice choice, I like the 230, a bit more nimble than mine. Looking forward to seeing some pics. :)

How many revs is she doing at 70mph in top please?

Sorry for being unresponsive. 2500rpm at 70mph in 6th, manual box. Maybe slightly over 2500 i'm just going on the rev counter needle, it is only a tiny bit below 3000 at 80mph.
