What colour have you had your wheels refinished in, I'm thinking ahead of going the full powder coat route on mine the same when the inevitable white worm returns and yours look great.

Thank you. They have been finished in ferric grey by the previous owner. I'm not sure if they were powder coated or sprayed.

An old instructor of mine had one that I got a tow out of Lasham in. Not a great day and I only managed 30 minutes. Flies nice though

It sure is (the clue is in my profile name). I really like it, amazing roll rate and great glide performance up to 90kts without water ballast. Easy to rig too - well after the 26.5m Nimbus 3 I had before it.

Well its bye bye to my Estoril blue convertible and hello to sunset orange today.
Couldn't believe how big Sytner in Sheffield is, biggest BMW dealer in the UK apparently.
Hundreds of BMW cars, mine was the only orange one I could see. It's in my drive now, 4 hours to get there and 4 hours back, well worth it though.

Nice ride! Get closer to the car and try to leave more space in the direction it's pointing rather than behind. Make sure that the space you include around the car has a purpose and adds to the picture rather than distracts.
In your first pic, think of how many elements you can leave out of the frame - ie the Tesco screen on the left. Less is more

There is always photoshop for those situations
Small file so quality is not good, but just to give you an idea

I'm sure he will correct me but the previous owner was the head of Alpina UK and drove to Germany quite often because he wasn't a fan of flying.

I added the M Performance diffuser at the weekend. It makes the MPPSK tips blend much better as they now don't appear to stick out so much from the normal M Sport diffuser. They always looked a little too obvious for my tastes.
