New addition to the forum

The wife's 1 series. Posted a few times over on the 3/4 series forum on my own motor. Thought I would share this here . Seems a bit quieter on the 1 series forum but some great advice picked up which helped us choose this.

Thanks for the positive comments. I think it's a great car and to be honest prefer it to drive than my F36. It actually feels a bit more refined to drive. Got winter rfs on it just now but a set of m436s going on in spring. Think the ferric/darker wheels works with the blue.

Seems like you are right. It will get dirty very quickly.

Ahh... well I'll sit between you two then because I'm on the fence regards the rear. Okay, I like it but I do not like the placement of the model designation... so a debadged LCI rear is fine...

Are we three agreed on the front at least?

Agreed, the badge or to debadge does generate a lots of posts and emotion in many! . I simply like the clean look and do agree the badges look cluttered on models now, especially if the xdrive one is there also.
