Yes. Old man Jag burgundy is a great colour.

You can't tell the difference anyway, because the first picture you put up was the original red available on MY09-MY13 cars. You don't seem to want to acknowledge this.

You don't know your own mind, and only like the burgundy, as you had a Evo X in the same colour. You've sold it. Its gone. Get over it.

Why not put a thread up about some magic tyres, or about some perfectly good brakes, (as you don't know what surface rust is), or maybe start a thread about blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Jesus.

Rubbish. You didnt even know they did it in Red, because you posted this earlier.

I am keen to here your opinions on Ride quality when some of you drive the new car, I just can't live every day with the current one, it was too harsh for me and noisy on UK roads to the point of headache .
YES I am older than most of you (65 next birthday) but still drive fast cars and enjoy them.

Waiting for "fall out".

You need a comma in between the "calm down calm down". Then start a new sentence at "it's". Also, start sentences with capitals

Like this.

Not my cup of tea, I write off RED Cars.
White would be my choice.

what tyres are you on???

over the last few weeks I have been experimenting with mpss, ive got 275/305 and it really does seem to help with keeping the tail to the tarmac, wet grip i find 100% better than the bridgestones

All cold psi -
32 bouncy but comfy no comfort mode needed
33 comfy not too bouncy!
34 harder with minimal bounce , need to use comfort if want soft ride
35 hard, looses the comfort of the ride for me

I'm staying on 34 for now..

some good info here with a quick read

I am surprised at just one PSI making so much difference, I am GTR less at the moment, I am going to look at this latest version and see.
PS) I have the LCI 2014 M5.

One PSI wouldn't make any noticable difference. Dont listen to him. The guy's a fruit loop.

Anyhoo....

How are you finding the M5. Been looking at one for a while. Pm me if you prefer

ahh no probs, well i think it makes more difference as the tyres are large at 20inch, so adding 1 psi makes a difference due to the diameter of the tyre, from what I've experienced and have been told..

oks thread back on track..

no need for insults Patrick, accept the red, its here to stay

I'd suggest the Litchfield suspension kit to save you changing the car.
It does make a big difference, but is not cheap at around £4.5k including fitting.

But it does make a big difference to daily usability.

I am enjoying it a lot, I have put 20" winter wheels and Michelin Alpin PA4's on it: 255/35/20 fronts : 275/35/20 rears and in this weather has helped a lot putting the power down.
Here are the winters.
Thats a private plate . it's coming off in two weeks.
