Cool, They look good against the white and black anyway, better than the blue imo.

Yeah I like that they're different tbh. I don't want to trigger any fan boys - but I actually hate blue lol.

Private plates turned up in a flash - only got them Monday night.

This is the first time I have had PPs - initially I was going for the F20 due to the model of my BM, but I like how it still kinda looks like it says "forty" haha.

No more updates for a while, need to do some saving until next month.

Looking good mate. Gives it that extra individual addition. I've ordered some metal pressed plates. Just standard lettering.

Thanks bud, really want to go on a nice long (semi-spirited) drive this weekend - just to see how much of a difference the PS4s are when compared to the old tyres on the car.

Also going to give the car an interior clean, and thoroughly go over all door shuts and sills (especially boot) - I'm concerned as I saw staining before. Don't want any rust creeping

Should get the boot looked at early tbh. The rep at bmw said if its left to long they may refuse. As its deemed as neglect.

Yeah, I may be out of luck tbh. The car is 3.5 years old, so I'm a good 6 months out of any 3 year warranty. Although I read on here the paint / anti corrosion warranty is supposedly 12 years!?

Well I had a quick look today - I may be safe! Although I have found what appears to be wax on the bottoms of the doors - apparently it's from the inside of the panels - and when it gets really hot, it can melt and run...anyone else experienced this?
