I just cant like enough let alone love the f56 like both my r56 & my old r53. My r56 & a dreaded n14 turned 6 in dec so yes Its a niggle but with extended warranty & a new clutch already Im hoping shes ok for a bit but you never know! Shes got TLC XL also. Plus shes got a lot of cetemental Value so shes hear to stay as Ive got know chance to be able to finance anything newer especially with the massive deperecation on my r56

Never had any passion for the R56, just always felt detached and numb (and we had two of them!)
Internals were dire as for the stereo.

R50 will always be special, but F56 is the best put together and more refined - maybe too refined. As for the looks, have grown on the rear-end, and whilst the front may have been further spoiled by crashtest regs, it’s still better looking than its buck-eyed predecessor.
