Hopefully some Pictures from my new car detail done by Autodetox (West Midlands)
That looks good, would you recommend them?
Not used another company but certainly pleased with the results. Barry was easy to deal with and location was easy for me to get too.

Initial m240i thoughts.

So having spent an age trying to spec my car and then waiting to then get it on an 18 plate I finally got my new car last weekend. I thought it was worth sharing my initial impressions. Having switched from a manual 120d xdrive to a automatic mlite the drive train is obviously the biggest difference...

Re: Car programs of choice?

Yep wheeler dealers not the same since Edd left. Do enjoy a bit of car sausage but never heard of goblin works garage. Catch fast and loud now and again and of course TG and 5th gear. Yeah top gear is back to its best. Chris Harris is great. Better than the grand tour. Haven’t done a fith gear in a...

Car programs of choice?

So used to love wheeler dealers. But since the changes haven’t watched a show.
I’ve now switched to Car SOS and stumbled across Goblin Works Garage. What shows do others watch?

Re: M235i vs M240i

The original poster mentioned PCP. Obviously in general arp % tend to be worse for secondhand so depending on figures a new car might not be a terrible choice. Certainly descent dealer discounts available.

New policy

Another policy sorted. Hopefully will never be needed but peace of mind at a far better price than a dealer suggested. Thanks.

Re: We need to talk about aquaplaning.....

Tread design surely has to help. Simply use F1 as an example dry/inter/wet tyre design. The amount of water a wet tyre can clear allows the car to function. Aquaplaining still occurs but at a high velocity. Interesting thread though. For the OP not sure I saw him tell us temperature at the time of t...

Re: M140i silver accents

Also not a fan of them. You can find replacement mirror caps from forum sponsor autoid or else where. Wrapping seems a popular option for the bits around the vents. You could always gets bits sprayed.

Re: business nav vs pro media on new cars?

It is still a smaller screen but it now sits behind a piece of glass that makes it look nicer. You also get a bigger controller although it’s not touch sensitive.

The front number plate is held on with 7 screws!! So when you remove it and the base the bumper looks like someone has fired a shotgun at it. Not pretty.
Just as well the number plate covers it up then. Lol

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.
