Wash it on the month and all will be well.
I've got Red Hippo Hide inside, so we are both in the same bloody boat.

Very likely was it a "hard Guess "

Test driving next month when I get back in the UK, got a new White M5 for 3 days over the weekend of the 5th April, I will have a better idea if I want one or not after that.

Lol. Very Nice. I bet you won't even need 3 days to decide!

She is 100% right. Don't spend so much on a depreciating asset like a car. Spend it on plastic surgery on both of you. Invest in each other.

So, pretty boy, why do you need a faster and fatter car right now?
Just wait for the new M3. It'll be just as fast and not so lardy.

I might pop over to Geneva sometime this week.

May go in that direction yet, must test drive this M5 first.
My E90 M3 2010 Saloon MDCT was a great car BUT lacked torque and thats important to my driving style. If I lived in London again I would have "a box" for town work and 2 seater sports car for weekends.

Regards Geneva, if your going to the motor show not sure it will be that interesting this time round.

I am also thinking of getting a really cheap runabout for London driving. Parking is hell at work. Very tight spaces. I am seriously considering a Porsche Cayman when I change the F30..

Re Geneva, you're probably right. Maybe next year to Geneva or go to Frankfurt later this year. But I prefer Switzerland.

Cayman would be a good choice IMO (if you've got somewhere to leave/park it when not in use).
Small diesel for work, my wife (retired) runs a KIA RIO 3 1.4 diesel, she gets 68MPG on a run I on the other hand do not.
