You may remember i knocked around here for a short while not so long ago when i had my focus...

Sold that to my brother last week so you will still see it knocking around.

Since then i have bought myself a BMW. Its a 53 plate 3 series with the M Sport kit on it. 2.0 litre 150bhp. Not the fastest thing in the world but compared to my last focus its excellent. Pull in any gear, great fuel economy, averaged 30mpg+ on the last tank and looks great. The colour is Ruby Red II, a BMW 'individual' colour which was apparently a 2.5k cost option from the factory when new. The only coupe in the country in this colour apparently. Has all the toys, cruise, park distance control, climate etc and as it is the latest facelift version it has the LED rear lights etc.

All i have done to it is HID conversion kit and parrot bluetooth kit, the final mod is an exhaust which i will be sorting out pretty soon...

Its the latest engine they put in it before the E90 came out but not sure what it is called?

What subtle cosmetic mods would you suggest?

It has the M Sport suspension and seats etc so its quite hard but surprisingly comfortable and not a rattle to be heard, smooth and refined - feel a bit like an old man but getting back into the Focus... it was like a skip!
