It's something of a forgotten gem. A shot of mine:
Beauty, mainly, epb. Also, I appreciate that you never see them on the road. I love fastbacks, and I wanted something with a stick that was a little violent, that I perhaps at some time could take to a track and have a little fun with. The Jag takes care of me for when I want to tour. The only other car I was considering at all was an '07 Lotus Exige S, but it pushes the impracticality just too far, and at $10k more. Though I love it's manical stare. Did you debadge yours? Is that Imola interior? Very nice. I would really, really, like to put M6 wheels on mine.

Yep, six on the floor.

The ride would be a lot nicer once you removed the run-flats and the extra trunk space was good, but the S54B32 makes up for it.
Why do the M's not have run-flats?

Yeah, I flew out to buy the car, and for a moment I wasn't sure if my luggage -- only carry ons -- would all fit! ~H
