: Hi Derin,I think the guy's name is Gordon Spence,but your right it's Ashton Motors.I think he used to have a Cecotto but sold it,I'm not sure.I paid £10000 for the car which was a bit more than I wanted to spend,but it was the right car and so I thought what the hell,we'll gone on holiday next year!.
: You should take a trip over to see him and his M535i,it's a cracker!.He also races 2002's he has 4 of them,not to mention a nice M635csi.The guy really knows his stuff so that will work out fine for having the car serviced or,God forbid,repaired.I'm hoping to pick the car up on Wednesday,so I'll phone you when I get it and arange to come over and see you.It's a shame you have to put your M3 on hold just now but a least you still have fast sporting BMW!.The guy also said he prefered his M535i rather than the M3,he said the M3 is fine if you DRIVE IT but pottering around town it's hard work,but I'll give it a go!.
I met him at the Doune Classic Car show this Summer. He had the 2002 Touring that he races with him at the time. We had a long chat about cars in general at the time.
I think your decision to spend a bit more is right. I'm coming to the conclusion that to get something really good you need to go at least that far.I can't really do that at the moment and still have enough in reserve to look after the thing properly - so I'll have to wait!
Really looking forward to seeing what you've got.
