Looks smart, nice choice. What mileage has it done? Also where's home for you? I took mine down from Aberdeen to Hertfordshire on Saturday!

Very smart looks mint :-) I have a 2013 too.. How did you find it against the 335d? Much difference between the two?

Nice looking car, congrats. Couldn't help but notice though, do those wheel bolts really take a 5mm Allen key?! How the hell do you get the required 140Nm torque through them?!

can I ask what you did to freshen up the discs? the centre of my disc seems to be getting almost pitted with either dirt/rust. was contemplating taking a wire brush and then a coat of silver hammerite to give it the new look again :L

they are plastic caps, the wheelbolt is underneath.

Congrats on the car Todd, nice work on the detailing too!
I decided the other day when I'm rich (fat chance!) I want a detailing bay!

Amazing car in one of my favourite colours :) just to correct you though - it's Estoril Blue, not Estriol :wink:

It's definitely a lot more fun. I'm not sure what's quicker as the delivery of power is completely different, as well as the 335 being mapped. How are you finding yours?
