Re: Alternative M2 sports seats

Recaro Sportster CS (BMW Performance seats are the same seats) would be my choice if I was to go third party

Re: Order cancelled by factory - absolutely gutted!!!!

Sorry to hear about your cancelled order.. Have you looked on the approved BMW website for any delivery mileage manual M240's? You may find a great bargain there.. There also maybe some unregistered stock manual cars available... OK maybe not to your perfect spec but still options are only the icing...

Re: Re:

Thanks for that mate. What were the spec of the OZ rims you were running, I think the Advans will be too pricey for me. Where did you source both sets from? I ended up importing the Advans from a company in Singapore (details which I got from a babybmw memeber who lived locally) as they were far ch...

Re: Student temporary car insurance whilst at Univerity?

No plans to do any fronting as I was going to insure just me as the only driver and perhaps get some separate temporary cover for when he drives the car on his return.. I assume this will work out considerably cheaper than paying for a full year to do probably less than 1000 miles.. PS the car was a...
