Amusing story, i'd actually booked a 5er, but rocked up and they said they didn't have any, but there was a volvo s80, which they promptly were told to shove. After some further discussion, a price, albeit a higher one was agreed on the 4er. It was brand spankers with only 1790km on the clock and with Hertz for less than a month, so it was mint.

The 420d, honestly, it had more poke than i expected... You'll never keep up with a 911 on the autobahn, but it pulled well and I didn't have many people sitting up my rear as it got up to left lane speeds on the autobahn.

On the autobahn it was good cruising with the top down up to 180km/h, once you went over the wind & buffetting got pretty bad, at 215km/h it became a bit too much, which resulted in me slowing a bit. Top up 250km/h is a breeze! To put this in context on the way back to Frankfurt airport there was 4 of us in the car and the guys in the back were sleeping whilst i was doing 220km/h! The quality of the roads over there is something else, so little road noise at those speeds.

As for the car, the finish inside was nice, the interior is definitely a step forward. With the handling, being a bigger car and a vert it was never going to compare to my old e46. Boot space was ok, the roof compromises it, but you'd expect that with the folding roof.

In sum, good car? yes. Would i buy it? probably not my first choice.

I was there around the 18th of June, agreed, wicked place, some of those classics are just so mint it is unbelievable. It's also pretty cool that they let you climb all over the Individual M series cars, some really cool combos there. I think doing the factory delivery option in the future and european tour is definitely something i will do, just got to figure out where (not here)/when(soon please)/which car (something M), and so on.
