Yeah I heard about the Zandvoort situation . It's a sort of ‘lottery’ scheme ! Damn Covid !
But It's better than nothing ...

It's just that 520d's are white in abundance around here, there are two near me in white.

It was clearly car karma - it's was meant to be.

I got mine 'cos my mate worked at the local garage and gave me a Friends&Family discount. M5 is the next move but the Cobra replica could be vying for the cash.

She's McLaren Volcano Orange and AK Sportscars are building her for me - Chevrolet LS427/570 engine with a ZF 8-speed auto gearbox. All the luxuries too - A/C, power steering, servo assisted brakes, black chrome brightwork and side pipe exhausts, LED lights, etc...

I'm not a purist so I'm going for noise, power AND comfort!
