Obligatory picture whoring whenever anyone picks up a new car right? [:)]

Went to pick it up yesterday; Bournemouth - Warrington - Bournemouth, left at 9am and got home at 8pm. SMG box is genius, I originally wanted a manual and so glad I didn't - paddle changes or sequential shifts, its absolutely fantastic. 27MPG average so far though it drops quite a bit when you thrash it....but screw it you only live once and this thing makes you grin ALL the time. Only problem is you cannot drive it slowly.

Plate is sold, I'll be putting mine on it

You finally got it [y] awesome.
Thanks mate, yeah took long enough! No SMG problems as yet [:p] Just did the Version 8 /28 Sat Nav software upgrade...what a difference! When I got it it looked rubbish, very dated. Now got 3D Perspective maps, very pleased

Btw , turn your automatic lighting on!! Very wise choice with the SMG, would choose that over manual anyday ...even with the problems.

Very very VERY nice!!

Whats the one biggest thing that put a grin on your face?!
Definetly the SMG.... so much better than I expected. Smooth, quick and flexible. 5th to 3rd down shift with the paddles, throttle blips for you automatically, floor it....sweet.

NICE.... skid marks, empty car park and an M3..... good combination!! lolz
Not me actually but well spotted [:)] There are speed humps all over that car park, so annoying

Just noticed that you went from an e46 face lift to an original e46 look.. it was a pity they never made a face lift but then again it looks more in your face with the pre facelift look. [:D]
