Thanks Nathan. It was a leap of faith going from the N18 to the N16, but after the drive home I have zero regrets. The graceful contours of the bonnet, especially with the JCW trim, are just flat out drop-dead sexy. I am smitten.

I don't think I could dream of any higher praise.

Getting excited for the coming week. I'll be ditching the run-craps for some 215's, to go with some NM Alpha lowering springs, 25 mm RSB, and adjustable rear control arms. Gonna have to shoot a whole new series of exterior pics!
