My First BMW - Update Page 2

Hi Guys,

I've been lurking around this forum for a few years now, but I finally collected my first BMW a few weeks ago. I had originally been looking for a low mileage Estoril Blue e92, but decided that it didn't make sense to me to spend so much money on an 'old model' (even though I still think that they look brilliant).

Anyway the spec is;

2015 420d Gran Coupe M-Sport, Estoril Blue II, 442M wheels, Black Leather, Sport Automatic Gearbox, Pro Nav, Heated Electric Front Seats w/ Driver Memory, Sun Protection Glass, Electric Folding Mirrors, Extended Storage, Enhanced Bluetooth w/ USB + Voice Control.

Since buying the car, I have sealed the wheels with Gyeon Rim, sealed all of the exterior trim with Gyeon Trim, sealed the glass with Gyeon View and used Collinite 845 on the paint. The leather has been cleaned with Auto Finesse Hide and sealed with Gyeon Leather Coat.

Don't really have much planned for the car other than a M Performance rear boot spoiler and change the pea shooter to the dual exhaust.

I haven't gotten a chance to take any good photos yet, but here are a couple of quick ones;

Nice

I could fancy a 440i GC in the future if I still need 4 doors..

Another EBII, the best available standard colour, looking good in that light indeed!

Yes, the GC is a nice alternative to an F30 if you're after something a bit different.

I agree mate! I find that even on dull days, Estoril Blue still looks great. It seems to capture light really well.

Nice car. I was considering buying a GC but ended up with an F30 LCI but it really was too close to call. Enjoy

Great looking car. Keep thinking I probably should have gone for the 4 GC. Welcome to the small sub group known as the 4 cylinder club!

I'm with you on the 4 pots. Got 420d. Nice car mate and best colour in my view but then it is the same colour as my 420 so I would say that lol

Enjoy your new ride. Looks amazing and welcome to the world of BMW
