    Heavens! I don't know if you've been in later models but they are built really nicely and the leather is more supple and higher quality than anything BMW have in their showrooms. Also, that 4.7 V8 sounds absolutely amazing. Arguably the nicest V8 sound and the exhaust doesn't fart and crackle 24/7 like on /some/cars these days :p

    Check Doug Demuro's review of the Ghibli, it's horrific

    Ghibli yeah, we're on about the Granturismo. Also imo the Ghibli looks naff, too softly styled, but girly tbh.

    They're all crap. All the way from the old BiTurbo up until the current crop, they're overpriced, unreliable, asspensiff AF to run cars which are ticking the second you fire them up. And when they go, you're in for a world of pain.

    Is that an R from an f type? I'm also trying to work out if the plate should mean something.

    Not really any worse than the fake "AMG" and "M" cars you can buy from a dealer now :p

    Probably an F type somewhere in Birmingham that’s had its badge chiselled off (I was on the Brum ring road)

    Every time I see an image of that I think it's a bad photoshop. I'm always disappointed to remember that I'm seeing reality.
