Picked this up a couple of weeks ago and during that time I have been busy getting it where I want it to be. Full refurb of the wheels together with a trip to the detailers. New OEM gloss black grilles together with debadging of the wings. All remaining external badges replaced and the proverbial stubby fitted. Now to drive and enjoy it :D

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I hadn't considered Mineral grey before for an E89 but I think it really suits it :thumbsup:

When I ordered my car Mineral Grey was the only colour available. That with a Black interior- so the colour decision was made for me.
The only choice I had was Hobsons!

So I bought a 35is with all the toys to play with. :thumbsup:
