F20 118i M Sport Glacier Silver (with photo's)

Hi all,

Last Saturday I picked up my new F20. Here is the spec:-

118i M Sport
Glacier Silver
Anthracite Hexagon Cloth
Driver Comfort Pack (Front and Rear PDC)
Interior Comfort Pack
Visibility Pack
Sun Protection Pack
Comfort Access
Ext. mirrors - folding auto dimming
Smokers Pack
Heated Seat
Blue interior trim finisher with Alu Hex trim.
DAB
Harmon Kardon
Telephone USB audio interface
Enhanced Bluetooth with USB audio interface
Black Panel Display, full.

On the Sunday I got the car fully detailed by I guy called Mark Brazendale (http://www.theshinefactory.co.uk). Mark spent 8.5 hours on the car and the result was amazing. I can highly recommend his services.

Anyway on to the good stuff. Here are the pictures:-










In my previous posts I was contemplating ditching the Glacier Silver and changing my order to Estoril Blue, but I am really glad I didn't now because I love the silver.

Cheers,
Streety82

I have never liked silver cars, but this looks awesome! I am half thinking I should have ordered my M135i in silver instead of Estoril.

Great looking car!

Hi all,

Many thanks for your kind words. I am very pleased with the colour!

To be honest I have not really had the opportunity to drive the car alot. I have just returned from a 2 year secondment in Germany and my company have let me use a company car while I relocate and sort things out.

As a result I've only done 250 miles in it so far, but I am really impressed.

I have not pushed it to it's limits as I was advised to not go above 3000 rpm until I've done over 500 miles. I have had a play about in all of the driver modes though and there is a marked difference between each mode. That Sport button is a thing of beauty . Completely transforms the drive and is so much fun. Makes a nice noise as well.

So far my fuel economy is around 36MPG, but I expect this to improve.

I should say that I am not a massive car enthuiast like I'm sure many of you are. For the last 2 years I have been driving a company Passat 1.8 (140ps).

The F20 is alot more fun and has plenty of grunt!

Cheers,
Streety82

A friend is looking at the silver but would like black wheels
I wonder if someone in forum could do a Photoshop rendering of your F20 with the BMW Performance side decal, rear spoiler/side wings and the wheels done in black
