    OK i'm going to sound really dim here, but what is objection to/reason for GRP wings not being well received on P6s? I know they are not OEM but no rust must be an advantage. Ian

    My E28 BMW

    Not everyones cup of tea, but I always liked these - its an M535i so quick but nice autobox. M5 is the real one to have but prices upwards of £15K even for a 'needs work' one. This car has the added bonus of not being allowed into the BMW 'M' club as they think its not a real M...
