Re: New PCP

My dealership phoned me unsolicited at about 2 years into my 4 year PCP. Was fairly open about hitting targets and that they were quite desperate. Managed to find me the same car as mine bit with more toys but in black, I didnt really want to change so just pushed him to see how low theyd go, would ...

Re: CAR FACTORY: 2017 BMW 1 Series and BMW 2

Re: Concession on mileage available from BMW on PCP!!

Re: Condensation Rear Lights

Set off and "BONG" and "tyre pressures are low you're gonna die type warnings" slightly annoyingly though it doesn't display what pressure it thinks they are until you have driven for a ...
