I LOVE the bronze and gold options Dave but they might be a bit racey. If neither of them fun metal works nicely imo. I quite fancy the 763m in gold against MG.

I'd go brake dust grey, or something very similar.

I'm not a fan of black, it makes tyres look old and tired by direct comparison.

Ferric Grey or the gold that GeoffCollins has. That looks the nuts in person!

Gun metal if you lose those stripes would look sooooo good. Understated yet classy.

Light gold if you insist on keeping those shouty racing stripes. Suns out guns out balls out. If in doubt, flat out lol

Lol yes sorry BP, apologies, as everyone knows it’s well documented my errm, ahem love for the aqua fresh stripes. But my reluctance to comment up till now has been a mixture of love for the M2 and your good self.

To anyone that has met you BP, you’re a true gent, not shouty at all, and not wanting unnecessary attention, I guess what I’m saying is, the stripes sort of suit the car, they just don’t really suit the owner. I hope you’re not offended by that mate.

Although, if you wore these sort trousers BP I’d of said nothing lol

And to further bolster my point, as sootys pic above clearly shows, it just looks hoofing incredible all calm, powerful and understated.

Twenny,

I'm too long in the tooth, too silver in the hair and too thick in the skin so no offence at all. Your candour is always welcome and a good leveller.

Very natty strides tho' - have you been stalking my wardrobe ? :lol:
