    Say hello and don't forget to tell us about your car and if you've got a picture (of your car), even better!

    I have just noticed this forum, so would like to say hello to all.

    Currently driving a 2013 (63) xDrive30d M Sport. A nice lazy motor for effortless high position motoring, but goes like a rocket when needs be. Brings a smile to my wife's and my face every time we go out in it.

    After years in BMWs from E39 528i, 530d, 2 530i's, E46 320d, 330d's and 330i's, then M3, M3 CSL, M3 again, 535d touring, 335i touring, X1 and others like the 2.8 Z3 etc. I went over to Merc for a bit, have to say I loved them, (bought an old 2.8i Z3 so I still had a BMW to play with) but the latest E350 I bought left me cold, so I am currently in an F25 20d xDrive X3 as my main car.

    I bought it to replace our old Merc ML, and it does a fair job, it is mapped and quick enough, returns 40-45mpg all day everyday, has all the toys and is comfy....but.....I am just not feeling modern cars much if I am honest.

    I took out a new X5 the other day, and to be honest it just felt more of the same, so then had a rethink and took out a 13 plate M5, but even that left me feeling a little cold, don't get me wrong I thought it was great, but think I would prefer a 535i touring, for the money the new M5 just didn't feel raw enough.

    Maybe I have just got to that age where all cars are 'not as good as they used to be'.....I seriously hope not!!

    Whatever, what I do know is I will always have a BMW of some sort on my drive.

    Well done to the CO for getting this site up and running. Terrible news when the 'Land closed. Looking forward to a more sensible site again. Still running round in my 325i Coupe, three year report soon.

    Hi, first post here. I was relatively new on bmwland but was really starting to enjoy the community and this new site looks a fitting continuance of the legacy, well done to The Co for setting up. I think it looks fresh and well organised and I'm sure with time it will develop into a fantastic forum.

    Couple of pics of mine and my wife's cars;

    My-car.gif Susans-car.gif

    They're both very similar spec (both 35d, active suspension, 19"/20" wheels) but (probably unsurprisingly) feel a very different experience to drive, so at some point I'll post a back to back comparison - hope it'll be of interest

    Hello old and new, no longer have my 640d but hope to contribute to this forum.

    Heres my old 640d and the new Panamera:

    Would love to know who bought it within 5 days of going on sale at this dealer - considering I only got £24250 from Porsche

    and finally

    Good to 'see' you again, fella.

    We'll not hold the Panamera against you, after all SWMBO still has a BMW......;). Be interesting to read a report on how you're finding the Porker.
