I do like this. Sort of more M than the bigger cars for me.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I loved that in the 1980s... now it's an interesting sign of the times. Beautiful model.

That is indeed a blast from the long long past, I assume they as a business disappeared shortly after that beast was done.

Lots of BMW's to like and this one is one of my favourite shapes. Maybe because it's from the era where they were in touring car series all round the world.
