New here and new to BMW

Postby raw111111 » 18 Jun 2017, 11:42

Hi All,

I'm Richard, I'm new on here and new to BMW. Just collected a 2010 on a 60 118d M-Sport in what I believe is LeMans Blue yesterday.

It's got 83000 on the clock and only a partial service history from BMW and seems to have had a few bumps in it's past but nothing that a bit of tinkering won't sort.

I'll post some better photos once the weather has cooled down enough to actually be able to clean it properly. I tried claying the roof to get some of the overspray/tree sap off (not sure which it is yet) but the spray was evaporating before I could get anything done and it was burning my hand.

Always had a BMW since I collected my first one in Munich - a 528i in June 1982.
