I'm sorry? Did I miss a meeting? It looks the same as it always did to me.....

So £3315 buys you a different set of rims, shortened springs and a software tweak. Hmmm...

"Frozen Black"...?

Isn't it just plain 'matt' black?

Bit of a bargain i'd say!, may not improve things dramatically, but compared to some chavved up efforts(you know who you are!) BMW have done it properly.

Yes, unfortunately, you're right. It seems to be becoming the latest chav colour of choice around these parts, in the last few days, I've seen matt black Escorts, Meganes, Corsas, and elderly 3 series. Definitely not for me, and surely this is going to have a bad effect on AutoGlym sales?

As an Alfista myself, I was hoping that no-one was going to mention that, a rare lapse of good taste for Alfa. I've seen one, and to me at any rate, it doesn't look good at all, can't think who's going to buy them, I bet they don't sell very many.
