Having just had some bodywork done by Sytner Cardiff to the nearside front wing, wheel and bumper subsequent to a RTA, I thought I would post this message to give praise where praise is due. They did an exceptional job and the whole process was effortless on my part.

This car was spec'd with the optional carbon seats - which I hated!!!!! They might look great but they are difficult to get in to and even more so to get out of and will look absolutely trashed after 20k miles. Point in case, I couldn't fully open the door because of a car next to me and where as normally in the M5 I could easily get out without sliding over the thigh support, in this i found myself really pushing over the leather as there was no other way to get out.
