Here are a few pictures of my 1er, Picked it up Feb 1st (10 months old with 9,400 miles on the clock)

First mod within 6 hours of pick up was to de badge the boot...
Sunday the 3rd of Feb


as of today the car is now showing 16,000miles, 6600 miles in 28days!

Booked in for its 1st service (due in 2500miles time) and the turbo actuator to be replaced, lost power 4 times

aiming to crack 250,000miles before its traded in/given away.... there isn't really a market for 3-4year old cars with mega mileage, my boss gave his 4 year old C220 cdi to his brother as a birthday present - 290,000 on the clock :roll:

Pobsey let me be the first, in what could be quite a long list of new best friends, to say that I will be quite content to relieve you (free of charge) of your leggy BMW beast of burden in 3/4 years time :D

Just turned 70,000miles today, no major problems so far Ive had:
1x set of front discs and pads
2x sets of rear discs and pads
2x sets of new front tyres
4x sets of rear tyres
1x new track rod (failed ball joint)
1x new turbo actuator flappy thing
1x drivers door lock and latch

Interior still looks like new except for the steering wheel and gear knob are slighty shiny,
Outside there are one or two stone chips but apart from that still looks great :D

Crikey! 70K in 11 months! I've only just hit 21K in 17 months!

Is this the highest annual mileage on the forum?
