bmw 540d - some motor?

on Wed May 09, 2018 9:55 am
sat in my sons new motor on sunday - like a boeing 747!

cameras showing front rear sides the lot....


his firrst time on the m25 a month ago he was side swiped and spun by a romanian truck driver coming down a slip road...got photos of his truck, licence and face - the driver said ''this happened two weeks ago as well'

he is still getting physio - car is full repaired...

i am still typing one handed - excuse lack of capitals - good report to dvla from my consultant so hope to be back on the road sometime soon..bus pass getting a hammerrng!

regards to all you reprobates...

european truck drivers on UK roads are an absolute nightmare, i have my wits about me when approaching one.

the 540 will be a beast if the 335d was anything to go by engine wise

glad you're on the mend old chap Smile

Hi VFC. I'm sure you'll be back terrorising the roads soon.

Yes, a 540d is going to be quite a car.

Hi VFC, glad to know you're having fun like an old bus wanker (The Inbetweeners...😂)

I too have a bus pass and made use of it last week to come home from Aberdeen. Went back yesterday in glorious sunshine the whole way. Got on the bike and three minutes out of the shop, it rained 🙄

Still, stayed over at sister's and will be heading home soon.

As for wagons, I approach flash the lamps with indicator on and floor it to get past quick as... Same on the bike, I come up behind, sit on his tail in full view with indicator on, then move over and flat out past.

Wagon drivers seem to see the bike better than my car, but car drivers are utter bellends on the main as they see a small bike, not a 650 🤔

Never even knew there was a 540d, lol. Did see a 550i the other day though. Apparently they also do a 550d with four turbos, but not for the UK.

Hope all's well, VFC. Smile
