VERY accurate, based on my 30 mins.
It will catch on!

Don't know why Mr Dobie uses the statement, spouted by MMC's bumph that "only the metallic stoppers that hold the Bonet shut" are carried over.
I noticed quite a few more bits, including the hand brake lever, the wheels and hubs and the wheel nuts. So yes, Aeromax wheels will fit!!

Seat belt warning nothing new either - good report though.

"4.8 V8 from a bunch of old BMW" apart, a good write up!

No mention of seat height - and the exhaust note is a positive......

Good report...Mark

Well that is good news.

I followed a strong blue Z4 on the way home today, sorry but that is a serious mess. Big blobby and not seemingly related to their other cars. It makes the Plus Six all the more attractive.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Not the most informative, but I think it still is a ‘spot on’ review video:

Interesting he noted polarised sunglasses kill the digital speedo readout in front of driver (and anything else displayed on the MFD) as I mentioned following my test drive.

Ha ha, is that his day job or was he filling in for a real presenter? Well at least he got the laughter bit right.

I really enjoyed his review (and also that of the M3W).
Lot of laughter - that’s what it’s about!!!!!
