Anyone know how to embed images from a OneDrive folder, I'm not going to copy all the pics to photobucket!!!!!!

Here is a public link to the folder, lots of pics be warned but she does look pretty IMHO!

Totally awesome car! Uber nice! I really like the way modern cars continue the body lines through the plastic (taillights and headlights, etc.), it is so effective. So what did you use to get the shine? It should shine up since it's brand new. :P You must have arms like Popeye the Sailor. :P Is your index finger cramping up from taking all those pictures? :P Is UK climate hard on cars? I imagine being surrounded by salt water doesn't help. Is there "acid rain" from pollution? Do they "undercoat" cars in the UK?

Trash Talking Man,

It had GardX from new, hey it was free!

Other than that I clean it once a week with Autoglym body shampoo. I use a wash mit and the two bucket method.

Not had a need for anything more yet but she is only 3 months old!

All modern UK cars are under sealed and this BMW has a 12 year paint warranty.

Guy who bought my old M3 has just had a claim approved for a rear wing respray and the car is 11 years old.

The colour is really wonderful as in bright sunlight its metallic orange but when it gets to dusk it looks red, it's not a colour I would have chosen off the page but in the flesh its stunning.

I'm really pleased with the car overall, and thats coming from the M3 :o

The British climate isn't particularly hard on the paint of cars, it doesn't really get to extremes of temperature as it does in some parts of the U.S. The wet is a problem with corrosion though and all cars sold in the UK have underseal sprayed on the underside. Increasingly panels are galvanised or aluminium (some cars even have ABS wings and/or tailgates).
