F30AM I think you've said it before... ETTO. Don't know what places you've been to that has plastic looking like Dakota black let me know though. Mini cab?!? Really?!?! Again we must be in different circles, you get spoilt if you're in cabs with that luxury!!

All you need is white wheels.... Oh wait jubilee was last year so that would be SO last year!!!

ETTO!
Fortunately we do move in different circles. My chauffeured car is an all black Mercedes S Class 350 CDI Bluetec, which I use quite regularly.

Nice, my chauffeured ride is a AS332 Super Puma, dam seats are only red upholstery! Use it usually twice in a two week period, if I'm really unlucky twice in a three week period.

Has anybody got/ordered EB with beige, I've ordered it as I've had black in my last 4 rides and fancy a change.

Ah, an OEM boot floor protection mat. Considering one of those but wondered what the quality is like and also whether the luggage lashing points are compromised and perhaps more importantly how easy is it to still access the underfloor storage compartment.

I don't dislike the beige as much as I thought I would, however I can't get out of my head that certain jeans would leave some colour staining on them.

No Stains so far and all my cars have had light interiors with NO problems, I hate Black leather it's so dark and dingy.

Nice! John how do you find the piano black inlays, do they scratch easily? I am trying to weigh up whether to go with the brushed aluminium or pay extra for the piano.

If you go for piano black I had that on my A3 Black Edition. Got a bad scratch on it (caused by someone I was giving a lift to for work) and I got some Meguars Scratch X, fixed it a treat (couldn't see it at all - COMPLETELY fixed) and well worth having if you've got that trim. Other than that I didn't find any problems with it.

Oh dear. What an ugly duckling. I don't have to share my ride with others. At least it gets you to the rig on time.

The dark side is always cooler anyway!!

i also came from an audi background. and im also very bored of their cars (yes they look nice, but they all drive the same)... never regretted buying a bmw - best choice i ever made..
