tigor's 116i

I've always been a diehard VW owner but changed over to BMW a few weeks back. Thought I'd start a thread as work's already beginning on it.

Replaced with:

I got it just over 2 years old with only 9,000 on the clock! Found it advertised at a dealership down in London. Guys were so desperate for a sale that they had it delivered to my door up here in Glasgow for nothing. Pretty good going I think.

Couple of weeks later and the rear's starting to see some changes:

After a trip to the bodyshop...

E88 M-Sport front end on an E87.

The fogs ended up causing me a real headache to change over. Eventually got them done this week. It's been a real hassle but I'm pleased with the result.

I've been having professional photos taken of the car this week in preparation for selling. Thought I'd share some arty ones with you.

Not really bored of it - I love it! I'm heading away for 6 months on a graduate placement abroad. Rather than keeping the car insured, taxed, and leaving it outside my flat for that period of time, I think it's time to sell up.
