As my original daily driver has enough miles to get to the moon and is beginning to show signs of tiring, I decided to replace it. So a trip to Leeds early morning to go pick this up!

110 miles later, and through the 50mph hell hole that is the M6, I got her home!

With the road noise, I'm going to check! Ride is a little on the hard side, even on the comfort setting.

BMW have a habit of fitting run flat tyres, which have a very stiff sidewall, and give a firm ride.:(

Replaced the run flat tyres when they wore out on both my R50 MINI and E90 BMW with same size normal tyres and the difference in ride and handling was well worth it plus they are cheaper.....however you do then need a space saver tyre and/or puncture repair kit in the boot

That is lovely, and a stunning colour. Enjoy it. There have been some amazing deals on the M cars recently, especially the end of line M2.

 

BMW don't fit runflats to the M or M Performance cars.
