He's already seen it and he says it can be fixed with the prudent purchase of the parts. So here's hoping we can hit the road again (not in a literal sense).

It is the same car as the avatar except the registration plate has now gone on to the Mercedes as they are my wife's initials.

The car has now been written off by the insurance company. After a lot of deliberation I have decided to let it go after 7 years.

On the up side I have seen later models at reasonable prices so I may go after another one or I have found a 523i SE with all the bells and whistles in a local salesroom. I am not in too much of rush to decide yet.

I changed the wheels on the car to the later style and I have a question about the original M3 style wheels. How do I know if they are original. I have no reason to believe that they are not since the car is an M-Tech yet can't tell if they are.
