640i Cabriole
« on: August 26, 2018, 05:31:15 PM »
hello all,

My mission to buy a mid-life crisis car went from SLK or Z4 (posted here sometime back) to Porsche Boxter to Merc E350 cab to now finally in the process of purchasing a BMW 640i :P

The pre-owned 2011 car just came into the dealership is still being 'prepared' by BMW, est. 1 1/2 weeks before i  get it into my hands.

In the meanwhile would like to know if anybody has any experience with the F12, any pitfalls to watch out for..

Appreciate all words of wisdom :)

The only pitfalls are:

Everyone will hate you......  :))

Jealous?  Me?  Nah....  :whistle:




I very very very nearly bought a 640d back when I ordered the F46 220xD as there were some really silly offers on brand new cars back in May (and probably still are).  May be next time as our little man will be that much older.  Then again perhaps and 8-series convertible may beckon.... O:-)

[emoji23] I'm used to being hated - having had an X5 for long enough lol

Btw I can't believe u bought an F46[emoji12] I'm guessing u r loving it.

I so wanted to buy the Merc E350. Head was saying Merc but the heart kept insisting it had to be the beamer.

I think we are going through our ‘sensible’ phase.

It is an M Sport though, with sport automatic and xDrive.  ‘Sensible’ has limits (and we still have the other two cars as well so not a total loss  8) )

Hi

Definitely looks nice and tidy and probably a mid life crisis car but hey you have to do it otherwise you can easily regret the missed opportunity.

You just need to wait for the summer and hot weather
