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 :)

Guuess it's not illegal strictly speaking, but it can be in a motorway situation - if not under 'AVG speed' or 'stay in lane'

Has anyone been booked?

How else do u pass all the middle-lane hoggers

Lovely interior - finally one to match the competition.

Front looks good, the grill is becoming bigger but still nice there's character.

Rear end never was great after they straightened it to get 7 seats in.

the tail lights are a desaster. Done away with their so called 'signature' L-lights?? What's going on even the M8 has the L-light. This looks like the ford s-max's rear end.

huh? meaning your kill switch doesn't exactly 'kill' everything? - how else do the front terminals have connectivity with the battery?

Kill switch installed and working, not much use as the battery is too low, will wait for ECP Easter discount before I pickup the battery.

So the wires being so thick did present problems, the cable is a little thicker then the OEM lead, was tough getting 2 of them throw the metal plate and under the seat, managed that.  Also being so thick they are quite tight when taking the seat down, so they don't move easily, so screwing the switch too the back seat could be a problem.  Need to get a little velcro on the switch plate that should do the job nicely.

well done, and u did it urself not Sanj? lol, where are the  :camera:

Guys, my beloved is treating me and the kids (as part of my 50th) to a 5 day trip to New York  :)

Never been and will definitely be visiting the 911 memorial and Statue of Liberty, but what else?

Any experiences?


How about...
Climb the empire state building
Go for a walk in the Battery Park
Visit Time Square
Visit Central Park (this is huge, maybe rent bikes)
Walk along Broadway you will find massive stores by almost every brand imaginable.
911 memorial has an observatory - go if the sky is clear
Rockefeller center
Natural history museum where that movie was themed - forget the name now
Helicopter, boat tours
U can even do day tours or rent a car and drive to Washington and back
