    Well, I've had my Sepang 65 plate rs3 just over 2 years and loved every minute. I just happened to call into my local BMW dealer on Friday and they had an M135i in the grey I really like. Has all 3 packs, sunroof, plus new style alloys.

    They called Monday to say they were closing at the end of Tuesday due to covid-19. Got a decent px at first plus 6k off list. Then an extra 1k on px.

    To cut a long story short, I'm now running the M135i, what a car. The features and tech are amazing. Booking a ceramic coating next.

    I just couldn't be bothered waiting for the new s3/rs3, so this fits the bill.

    I'll stay lurking on the forum....

    Steve.

    Looks great but those alloys look like they'll be a pain to clean.

    What engine is in it? BHP?

    Lovely. It'll be interesting to hear your thoughts on it after a few weeks of ownership.

    Looks great, I've been watching some videos on the Motech versions. They look really good, still retain the OEM look but at the same time look a lot more aggressive.

    Cheers.

    Timing was tight, had to sort everything on Tuesday and pick it up before they shutdown. I will probably call in when they reopen as I bet I will have loads of questions. 2 day detail and ceramic coating booked tomorrow and Saturday.

    Surely a detailing business isn’t an ‘essential’ service at this present time????? :whistle2:

    Depends, he may work for himself and from home, so just park the car, pass him the keys and see you in 2 days.

    Self employed. Doing it in my garage that will fit 3 cars, it has it's own toilet, water, power etc. He did my rs3. He will be perfectly isolated in there, I won't go near, and after I will bank transfer the money.

    I'm acutely aware of the situation, but if I can help a self employed business out making sure we minimise the risk then I'm ok with that.
