Sweet!

Yeah, we get the euro models here in Australia so we don't have the front reflectors as well.

I know the overall weight of both cars is very similar but the 2er just feels a lot lighter and chuckable into the corners, I'm keen to drive Putty Rd again to compare it to the e92, hopefully Pete organizes another road trip soon. I'll drive it a bit more and report back when I've gotten use to the car, but it is certainly a blast with the little N20.

Just got back from a morning Putty Rd blast with BMW Drivers Club. Shame the weather didn't co-operate, but it was still great fun. 28 BMWs on the drive.

That's what we did this morning, Windsor to Grey Gums for breakfast. Some continued on towards Broke afterwards. I was the only F22, hopefully more next run.

Wow that looked like an epic cruise, I can see lots of M cars there. Let me know when the next one is! I'm always keen for a drive. It's pretty cool seeing your car next to the e46, they are very similar in size.
