Re: New A45 Xmas vid

Interesting thread as I've got the AMG GLA45 and apart from the slight annoying throttle delay once on the move I don't worry too much about it and make no mistake after the cars I've had I definitely don't hang around although now I've officially retired I expect I'm going to have to slow down a li...

Re: Any FN2 Type R owners? Thinking about selling the 135i

We had an FN MY11 Honda Civic V-Tech Type R GT which we bought ex-demo from a Honda Dealership and thought it was a superb car and only sold it after I started getting a little sore back on the odd occasion traded in against our first BMW MY13 BMW 118d Coupe in Carbon Black which really looked the b...

Re: Gran tourer retrofit map lights?

Welcome to the forum Joakim, unfortunately although we had an Active Tourer I'd specified both in the build so regrettably I'm unable to assist you although I'm relatively certain there'll be plenty of folks on the forum with far better electrical knowledge than me who'll advise in due course. 8)

Re: Back in a BMW

We bought exactly the same on the original release date four years ago and subsequently sold the car last year against our MB AMG GLA45 I've got to say it's a superb vehicle although the "A" post does take a little getting used to but after a few days driving the car you won't even think about it. d...

Re: X2 photo thread

Nice one Tony although it does look as if I need to see one in the flesh when back home, initial impression being it's roughly the same size as our previous Active Tourer. 8)

Re: My X2 review

Good review Tony and I'm looking forward to seeing one in the flesh when back home in December, be interesting to see your photographs as opposed to the usual press rubbish much better when an owner takes them. 8)

Re: Opinions on new M140i order

Decided to drop the speed limit display, comfort access and rear view camera to get below £40K. Can't justify the extra tax cost for a few 'niceties'. Thanks for the feedback. I agree re the comfort and rear camera. But speed limit display for £250 I wouldn't be without. I love this option in my ca...

Re: Opinions on new M140i order

Thanks but I was aware of the change in This may seem like a silly question but following agreement with the dealership regarding the order, is it possible to "purchase the additional items" such as the Speed Limit Display outside of the agreement so-to-speak? 8) Yea. You can change your order until...

Re: Off to view this

I've no experience of the hatchback however my first impression was four (4) owners on a 5 year old car on 39, 000 miles, personally I wouldn't go anywhere near it but that's purely from a buyer's point of view. 8)

Re: Dealer has damaged my car

I'd be straight back to the dealership and see the Dealer Principle it looks as if a butcher has been working on your car, not exactly a cheap new car and similarly the BMW Dash Cam unit isn't either, really aggravates me when I see things like this especially with the money charged on labour rates ...

Re: M2 from dealer with outstanding finance ?

Get the dealer to clear the finance and show you a clean HPI before you give him any money. He is the dealer doing the deal, and should assume the risks - not you.If he chooses not to pay the finance after you've paid for the car, your on the hook for the £ outstanding./quote] This problem recently...
