Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed!

Tattoed hands or face just doesn't inspire me.

Once upon a time, you walked into a BMW dealership and were greeted by a smart, professional looking salesperson.

Just hope he hasn't gone for the Spiders web on his neck?

Looks like BMW's thin veil of professionalism has finally slipped!

Not for me, I'm oot bye

Revving any engine stone cold is a no no. But it's surprising how many people are unaware of this.

I think OP is getting a bit precious over it due to the fact it's 5 years old! I could understand the upset if it was brand new. It's a performance car ffs and will have had some royal spankings thus far in it's life.

And don't mess with Donny lads... esp ones with tats on their hands... Rock Ard!! Laughing


I guess I am being a little precious, but its a new car to me, so I want it to be a good experience, what happened to it in the past, is very much, what I don't see, don't hurt me, if you know what I mean.


Yep, I get what you mean. I'd get very twitchy if someone revved my car cold. I would instinctively baulk. Despite the fact it's probably had some abuse in the years before I got my hands on it.

Couldn't agree more. I don't mind tats, I haven't got any myself. But if someone at any point in their life has thought it a good idea to get their face, neck or hands inked then in my book, they're nuts.

Its only the cold revving that would bother me, but as others say, its probably had worse. He did tell you it hadn't been prepped.

Nice motor, I have a F11 and they are great cars. Not an M5 unfortunately. Im also not a fan of the black wheels though.

My mate had an RS3 on pcp, after the 3 years is up it goes back to the dealer and sold onto someone like you and I. Now believe me this 5k cold reviving is nowt, I’ve sat in this RS3 and cringed, stone cold off the limiter as soon as it’s moving, luckily it has a limiter to stop it revving past 2k at idle or that would get it too.

You wouldn’t touch this car with a barge polll but once it goes back to dealer has a wash and polish no one would ever know.

Nice BMW, I wouldn’t let it bother me but certainly would bring it up when/if you go to view it

I was oot long before he revved it. nooo

I'm afraid I just didn't get a good impression about the outfit from the salesperson.

Another example of jumped up horse-traders.

Doncaster BMW is a Stratstone shop from memory. As far as tatts go, the intimidation with those went out long ago before the advent of deconstructed coffees with avocado smash and beard flowers.
Having lived 2 villages away from there, i know the site well. The video where he filmed it was their holding hard off to the side and would have taken 30 meters of driving to make it appear on the forecourt. In between those two points is their valeting team. Why wouldn't you ask them to throw a sponge over it Dont know
To be fair they generally have well specced and priced cars from when I was looking at M cars, so keep an eye on them in the future.

Gents FWIW V10 BMW M5s are fitted with a rev limiter that restricts the maximum rpm when cold , this will rises as the engine temps increases and although 5,500 is bloody unkind I am pretty dam sure than when the young lad who has just changed the oil on our pride and joy takes it out for round the block test drive is not bothered a jot by the that fact that the car is not fully warmed up yet Dont know

Hi Cableguy thanks for pointing that out must remember to read whole thread in future . IIRC the F10 still retains the same type of rev limiting system to save undue engine wear when still not up to full operating temperature
cheers

Haha, you're right about the tats. When I was kid tats on the hands or neck meant 'watch out mother****er' Not the same thuggish effect these days...

Ok, let me guess- Barnby Dun?
