Pobsey's Alpine White 118d M Sport - The return

Post by Pobsey » Tue Jul 16, 2013 2:54 pm

Afternoon,

Some of you longstanding members will recall my adventures in my 120d M Sport, if not have a read - http://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?f= ... pobsey%27s

So after a couple of years away, it was time to buy myself a car suitable for doing a few miles in - I'm now doing half what I used to do!
The search began, but to appease my wife I looked further afield, audi - nice interior din't like the power delivery or the steering, Skoda - didn't like the interior and engine and it went on..

Came across this car at my local dealers, I wasn't looking for another alpine white car, it just happened!

New Car:

Nov '11 car with just 8,900 miles on the clock, with a reasonable spec of:
Xenons
H/K stereo
Prof H/U
Bluetooth
Interior storage pack
Maintenance Pack

First thing I noticed the size of the wing mirrors - they're HUGE, so much so we've named the car Dumbo!

The deal was done and under a week later the car was picked up, looking at retro fitting cruise and maybe USB but other than that drive it!

Their not too bad to keep clean, wheel brush and a microfibre mit work well,

Got a couple of minis (a cooper and a breathed on cooper s) and did have an ageing VW polo, which I traded in for this car

In the picture it looks as if your xenon's have the brow at the top, have they been retrofitted? as I'm sure these xenons aren't available on the e81 and e87

Pretty good one at that, I thought it could be a reflection but it was in the shape of the brow lol
