New Motor

Picked her up on Saturday and I'm really please thus far, particularly with the Sports box, really responsive and very smooth, a few pics below.

I got the dealer to do a few of the usual bits as you can see: Performance Grill and Spoiler, Replace front indicators and Fogs, tint rear reflectors.

Great looking. What's the rear reflector tint? What fogs did them put in?

Was it Wollaston BMW where you got your car from?

How do you find the auto box with the 2 litre engine? Had you driven the manual version prior to ordering?

Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback, I have to say I'm really enjoying the driving and getting to know the auto box.

To answer any questions. The Indicators are Phillips silvervision, and the fogs are GP Thunders, and yes it cam from Wollaston.

I am finding the auto and 2.0D a very smooth ride, with more than enough poke when needed, I'm finding it quite addictive to be booting her down a gear.

I guess the main thing is mineral grey, although a great colour, has been around for ages and can come in any of the trims. EB is quite exclusive and therefore hopefully should be fewer of them around.

Saying that - go with the colour that makes you feel the best. It's a personal thing and although people may compliment or not, that's irrelevant really - get it for you!

I think MG could be the new EBII! Although hopefully not quite so common

Trust me. IMO While MG is a lovely colour, EB2 is just stunning and stands out from all the other cars (in a good way )

You will not be disappointed.

My family & mates out voted me on my choice of colour.
Originally set my heart on Melbourne Red.
The more pictures i saw of the EB & plus the exclusivity for the M Sport i soon agreed.
Maybe, MR next time in the F32.
