To keep this thread current (now the 24 has gone Sad ) here's some images of my 330ci including the latest shot I took with my iPhone on nights last week...

The colour looks amazing under floodlights, despite the dirt and the rain.

The latest image. The iPhone gives good grainy images as it struggles to deal with low light.

Was going in this week with a mate who said the high CO2 on the emissions wouldn't be a problem. Has since backed out of that so having to try to get the diagnosis software working to check all engine data to rectify the problem.

Coupe been at the garage for 3 days. They're looking at it in between jobs. One of the HT leads seems to have had a poor connection so new leads. Nothing else yet. Photographed the BM again last night. Still can't get over how good the colour looks under LED floods compared to daylight  Drooling

Sent the (one and only) BMW key I have together with the EWS immobiliser unit to London to have a new key cut and programmed as well as a spare service key. All for £72. Sent it special delivery to keep those light fingered posties from taking a peek inside!
