Coming back from Germany - USA!

Hi all,

Ok so not physically coming back, as I currently live and work in Sandland (Dubai), but have been an owner and aficionado of all things BMW for many years. Was currently in between cars after selling my 2008 Alpina B5 and sniffing around for a performance SUV.

Initially looked at the X5M but felt I wanted to A) spend some time away from BMW, as very used to them at this point, and B) Be a hair more responsible with my cash, so I looked at the SRT as a natural choice.

I've seen a few of them around the streets and they always caught my eye, more so than the hordes of Ferraris you see littering the streets here. Has a certain.. machismo to it that sets it apart.

So I went and checked out a couple of '15s at the local dealer and saw a snow white '14 on the lot that grab my attention immediately. It was registered 6 months ago so is 6 months used with 11,000 kilometers on the clock, fully loaded, tow package, high end sound, Borla ATAK exhaust, Blueray, etc. Just... mint. and a full 16.3k USD cheaper than the '15, it was an absolute no brainer so I pulled the trigger there and then.

I take possession of the car a week from now and couldn't be more excited.

As for mods - I've already ordered black badges, SRT door sills, black grill rings and am making inroads into ordering a RM mid drop kit with the bars as well as a CF lower front splitter. Shipping is a B*TCH, though!

I'll also be powder-coating the window trim and break duct trim a piano black as well to complete the look at some point.

I will, naturally, be posting pics of the evolution to share the journey and no doubt pestering people with questions as I go. I very much look forward to joining the community!

But until then, here's a couple of my recently departed... how I miss this car.









-Dirk (with a square jaw)

CURRENT:
