Back after two years...

Hi Everyone,

I got seduced by an Audi A5 and sold my last 3 series, but BMW pulled me back in with the 435d...wow what a car!

I've not had it very long but I'm sure i will have a few questions (which i will search for first)...here are a couple of pics so you know why i have switched sides!

Black leather...never been a massive fan of the coloured leather, obviously in the minority as loads of F32's have the two tone option??

Congrats and welcome back! Former A4 and S4 owner here too. I took quite a bit longer break from BMW than you did, but I'm back as well.

It was a good looking car (silver A5 2.0 S-Line Coupe) but it never felt as good as my previous 320d, i don't know if that was the slightly off driving position or the fact it was front wheeled drive but it just felt awkward compared to the BMW...as soon as i test drove the 435 it just felt "right".
