Thank you for the compliments Yes this was the colour I was after, sets the car off well - especially with the black roof!

That puts my mind at rest then!

Is it a big job to check the spark plugs? Will it be a large cost?

So you're the second member to suggest changing the transmission oil, will definitely look into this!

I noticed the sheer amount of info available on here on the 6 series compared to other forums in the UK! Everyone on here seem really helpful too!

What made you change your car? Are you considering buying another one?
Hi ! This is the best forum anywhere including other BMWs and other manufacturers, some of the guys are really worth listening to, very knowledgeable, not everyone will agree to everything but they do come to a consensus which will put you on the right track!!
When I had my 645Ci I had bought all of the parts necessary to do the transmission oil change, i.e. Transmission pan, mechatronics sleeve and oil 6 litres of special oil I mentioned (it is very difficult to buy), sadly I sold my car and so they just sit in my garage, will sell it all one day!
The 6 Series is the best car I have ever owned, I sold it for a 3.0ltr Z4 (E89), the worst car I have ever owned sold it after 6 months and now have a Mercedes 350 CDI E class convertible ( 2 months ago)
There were very specific reasons I sold it, there are many threads on the subject, but it came down to personal choice in the end !!! Would I buy another 6 Series YES !!! but only when the 2011-12 come into my price bracket as I will never ever buy a brand new car!!!
I have and continue to enjoy this forum and kick in when I think I can add value or an opinion, but still enjoy reading about new peoples experiences.....as they fall in love with the car......
