    Picked the car up today, buying from a main dealer the quality of the sale was very poor.

    First few mike done an already had a diesel Barnet up my rear end

    The feel of the car is Rapid, much different than an R53. Although the R53 felt quicker I think but it should have done with the amount of money spent on it.

    Quality of the car is immense too. feels very solid, love the automatic rev matching in sport mode!

    Coilovers purchased with a 20% eBay discount through DemonTweeks.

    Carbon mirrors too.

    Looking at getting 5x112 to 4x100 PCD Adapters to run my Dare X4 wheels.

    Iíll probably be getting them powder coated Nardo grey and the roof wrapped to match.

    Full de chrome almost done, just need to do the door handles, I have parts but they need wrapping!

    Good effort!

    Still not keen on the 3rd gens, but I said the same about the 2nd gens for a few years too...

    I was the same but ultimately I couldnít be chewed with the upkeep of an R53!

    Plus, the progression of this car is just so nice from an R53. Pretty much just as quick or if not faster than my R53 as it is.

    Yeah, the R53 is pretty archaic in comparison, and the 3rd gens can be made pretty rapid.

    I only use mine once or twice a week for work, it's terrible on slow roads rattling and squeaking, but once you get onto fast stuff it's awesome.

    I'm sure you won't be on stock power for long.
