Still a bloody great car... so much character that the Mk III just can't hope to match. I got to have a drive of my old one a few weeks back - the benefits of having sold to a close friend! It's a lot faster now than when I owned it; it's running full MR375 Clubsport spec. Even though it has 180,000km on the clock it still feels like new; it's been seriously well maintained.

Yea, that’s not going anywhere.

From West Lothian, you?
Up the Scots! I'm West Lothian too! Just completed the finance application so we'll see what happens. No doubt I'll get the 'hahaha, you must be joking mate!' email through tomorrow at some point!
You buying from eastern?

Not any more sadly. Finance denied! Now looking to buy something in the £10-£12k range.

If you bank with Bank of Scotland you can get finance through the app, doesn't run the full credit check as such. You can play around with the numbers and see whether or not you're 'highly likely' or 'highly unlikely' to be accepted. I never bothered with dealer finance as I'd most likely of been declined as well or get hit with stupid interest. It did seem a wee bit weird being approved and buying the car just using the app.

It would have been a lease rather than bought outright.

They do what they call flex finance (pcp) on the app as well👍 it's worth a punt if you bank with them.

Mirror caps are getting dropped off at the body shop I always use to be sprayed gloss black.

Mirror covers back; gloss black grills & mirrors should have been an option

Looks good, though I think everyone is now going gloss black even on 118i/d’s and it’s making me like the cerium grey more and more. Feels a bit more unique in a way. Black goes well with the misano blue though

I’m feeling this too… I was all set to remove all the Cerium Grey parts this Summer and replace them with Gloss Black. Now I think I’m going to leave it as is and spend my money elsewhere!
