ok probably just been daft here, got the track 2.8 beemer
got a polo daily, use of company mazda and van..........but

been looking at e38 seven series!!!

either a 2.8, 3.5 V8 or THE 4.4 V8!.

these are as cheap as they will get right now,

fully loaded with leather electric heated memory seats, cruise, sat nav, built in phone, disc changers, electric everything........ i think they look mafia style cool with some big rims and tints.

the 4.4 V8 has over 300bhp too!! please tell me am being a tool and i dont need one but fuck the carbon footprint seriously i love 20mpg shit!

if no one persuades me otherwise check out the gangster barge at the next meet! lol

Trouble is, there cool but useless, I don't no much about them but if they were big power with good handeling then everyone would have one, up to you mate but I'd just stick with your beemer atm

its not for going fast although there not slow, it is a beemer, reason people dont buy em is there were 50k new and drink fuel, i need something to take my baby girl in as the polo is 3 door, the 3 series has buckets, am not selling either just want a big, safe, tricked up tank for the family!!!

the 4.4 V8 has 300bhp and 310 ft/lb of torque! 60mph comes in around 6.5 seconds and top speed when de-restricted is 175mph!!! that berry is not slow, but i dont want one for that reason i just want a cool comfy cruiser thats a bmw.

well i will keep my eyes open, mind change my mind yet and just take the boss 5 series of him instead. nice motor just no leather n half of toys a 7 has got

only just got it,

wont look that special on standard rims, been stood ages under tree's so needs a clean, berry you would laugh at how cheap,

i reckon bloke though it fucked cos it wouldn't start but me and guy sorted it, drove it 200 mile back without a problem, i may keep it,

let me valet it properly then i will start a build thread, gunna document all work/repairs on it

yes i know how you feel, never started any pics with the white one and look how different from standard now!

just a clean, wax etc and i will snap away.

i will even document on the build thread problems/repairs, hopefully give other forums a kind of DIY way of looking at stuff, anything from the service basics to more complex if it needs it.

should be a laugh and then if i keep it and mod i can see how it progress
