Yep, I think the factory figures were 321 and 325 respectively. First time on a RR so will be interesting to see the actual with a few miles on the clock.

The OEM suspension is fine for normal road use, I would actually say very good. This is based on driving my MC for over 210K miles, both for business and pleasure. All my suspension has been replaced...

They are both actually very different cars, engines, throttle, traction as well as notable cosmetic differences. S50 is E36 M3 based, S54 is E46 M3. Suggest you drive both if you can before deciding,...

Hi Martin,

Excluding fuel, MOT, insurance, car tax, just £15.13 this year for an air filter frame. Only did 2500 MC miles in 2017, which is disgraceful for me!

Happy New Year,

Ian

Black S50 for sale

The eBay black S50 has bid up to £21,200 but "reserve not met" so seemingly unsold.

The MC is great in all weathers and was designed to be used, not polished within an inch of it's life.

Drive it all year, life's too short to do otherwise.

Worth trying a S54 MC if you...
