Nothing to report, which is very good in some ways. Just over 4400 miles now and running perfectly. Still averaging just under 20 mpg. No oil seems to be used.

Had it two years at the end of next month!

Managed to gently roll it into the front garage wall a few months ago. Tiny tiny rough bit right on the bottom of the front spoiler but it's not worth doing and not visible with the car being black. Must get front parking sensors next time too!

Unfortunately not many miles in the next year as I will be away in Azerbaijan most of the time.

Greetings from a nicely warm Baku.

Don't seem to see any M cars here but there must be some. Seen a couple of Alpina B7.

I still intend this being a bit of a keeper but definitely keep for another couple of years. When I return from Baku full time (2 or 3 years I hope) I would probably like to keep it and either buy a brand new specced up to the eyeballs 7-series or an older Bentley Arnage, Ferrari 308GT4/Mondial/348/355.

And of course there's always the 8-series or 2002tii or 70s CS coupe to try.

4400 miles, that's low!
Is it DCT and out of curiosity what do you do?

Yes, DCT. Would not have considered anything else after having it on my previous 335i.

Low mileage as really only ever a weekend car and spending lot of time away from home.

I'm an engineer in the oil industry , subsea electro-hydraulic controls to operate the valves and instrumentation on the wells and subsea structures.

Blimey.

Just pondering what it would be worth in 5-10 years, with that mileage.

I'll start by saying the car is running superbly and continues to delight. Sitting in the garage for 6 weeks plus at a time seems to do it no harm including the battery.

Still just shy of 5000 miles at nearly 2 1/2 years old and still averaging just short of 20 mpg. The service consisted of oil service, micro filter service and intake silencer/air filter. The internal BMW service invoice was for £372 but I have the service pack. No advisories.

Next service due in April.

After the service I had it clayed and machine polished. God, it looks good but I'm sorry I have no further pic's at the moment.

Must take it out tomorrow as I'm away again on Monday, back mid -December.
