Re: BMW Price increase announced

Interesting.. In there the doc states: "The list price must be provided as it stands on the day before the date on which the vehicle will be licensed and registered" So if the price change is effective 1st March that means cars registered on 1st March will be able to be classified as pre-price chan...

Re: BMW Price increase announced

It is the only good thing about the 40k limit. If you’re looking at a car near the limit it really makes you think about what you’re after.

Re: Speed camera app for iPhone

I find cyclops the best for camera sites but obviously there are more people using waze for the community alerts. I also like the large speed display in cyclops. I tend to switch between these and the Tom Tom app. Still trying to work out the best option.

Re: BMW Price increase announced

However your price with BMW hasn’t changed it’s just that the price for new customers has changed. BMW can’t be held accountable to TAX laws. The question is the extra £310 a year is a deal breaker. Although I’m not happy I to know the spec of the car is what I’m after so will likely swallow it to k...

Re: BMW Price increase announced

Some good news. A car can be "Advance Registered" up to 14 days before the actual date of registration. The list price is that from the day before the form is submit ted. So that appears to suggest that cars registered up to 14 or 15 March can have the existing list price recorded against it. Inter...

Re: Help my spec - Poll

TRL has just shared that there are going to be price rises 1st March so it’s most probably a moot point for you now unless you’ve already ordered.

Re: BMW Price increase announced

Bummer. That's going to send nearly all but the most poverty spec M240s over £40k and you might have to be stingy on the options on M140s too, if you want to avoid another £1200 (?) in extra road tax over the first few years. So BMW will honour the old prices on orders already placed? Tax is calcul...

Best logic in ages -perhaps it explains Trumps success.

With the same power unit and not vastly different weights surely it’s not much of a surprise. The touring would be a great sleeper.

Re: M240 Mirrors

Are there any other alternatives? I’m not a fan of the factory mirrors. Would like body coloured. Auto ids include the flick but I’d quite like the OEM shape. I guess I could get ones from bmw does any one know the cost for this...are there any other third party options.

Really sorry to hear this. Just because your house is new don’t assume the locks are 3 star diamond rated. It will say on the lock, if it’s British standard get them changed ASAP.
Agreed. My new house had the most basic euro cylinders. Double check.

Re: My new machine

I went pro media, adaptive and electric seats. No sun roof. Just what works for me and my family. On cold mornings, for about 2 minutes I think I should have got heated seats, but not with the money to me. The one thing I wish I had ordered was the tinted strip on the windscreen. Other than that I ...

Re: My new machine

I would ditch the sunroof and get the pro media. Not for me. I far prefer the light that a sunroof brings in. To me improves the interior no end. I knew it’s what people would suggest. My current car doesn’t even have nav. The sunroof is great, I use mine all year round for the light and the air fl...

Re: My new machine

I mentioned aftermarket audio because obviously it's cost is not included in the RRP of the car so could make the difference between over and under £40k and all that extra tax over the next few years. I thought the same about the sunroof before I got it, it lightens the cabin and does allow a bit m...

Re: My new machine

I’ve been contemplating this car since I’ve joined this site. I’ve given lots of thought to what I want I hope I’ve made the right choices. This site has been really useful in shaping my choices so a big thanks to all.

Re: My new machine

Having got both in mine, I'd sacrifice the sunroof for Pro Media if I had to make a choice between them. A mentioned in another thread this evening, of all the options I specced the sunroof is the one I probably wouldn't spec again given the price and the amount I've actually used/appreciated it. A...
