I'm fucked: whatever the next iteration of the B5 is I'll need to either bankrupt myself buying and speccing a new one or hunt all of Europe for the right options.


On a car like that I suspect you'll find one where the owner has spec'd it to the gunnels.

I quite fancy a nice 535d or 440iGC in a few years but I've no idea where I might find a well spec'd one


A few people said that about an M135i but now all seem to have vanished...

Those Alpina lot are a bit strange though. They will have collectively decided that something like satnav doesn't fit with the brand.

Indeed.

Whenever I spec cars online now I find myself ticking "heated and cooled seats" and "voodoo cruise control" and then thinking "how much?".

What are you going to do if it sells before the 440 arrives?

Relax happily. We live in central London and have another car.

The 440i went to build last week, so in principle there should be no issue there.
