      Thanks for the praise. I did have some photos which i managed to delete,
      Duh!!!!! I`ll post some more when i get the chance. It does look nice. It is
      a pukka M535i Says so on the reg doc and the plate inside the drivers door
      pillar.At the moment the bumpers are off for a bit of stone chip repair to
      the valances. Looks quite businesslike. Hope to get a lot done to it this
      year time permitting.
      Regards
      Martin
