New owner..

Post by A1DEYB » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:48 am

Morning all,

Myself and my girlfriend are picking up our new (to us) 1 series on Saturday from Lloyd Colne BMW and to be fair i'm more excited about it than her, we've traded in a 14 plate 116D sport.

The new car is a 116D M-sport, automatic, 17 plate, 3000 miles, ex demonstrator in Black and i'm told it's got a couple of extras such as, driver comfort park and rear tinted windows.. what's in the driver comfort pack? Cruise control? What else..

Day to day I'm a company car driver so to have something German/sporty (albeit not that fast) for me to drive around in on a weekend will make a nice change but that said my company car isn't bad and i do quite like it (a white Insignia VX LINE NAV) however i do have my name down for a 118D shadow edition come next May/June, before i was in the company car scheme i was an Audi/VW man so I've had my fair share of A3's and Golfs but BMW is fairly new to me.

Are there any trick bits you can enable on the cars driver information system, must do's / don't etc and finally GAP insurance, is this a must? The dealer is offering it to us for 4 years at £500. I'm sure you all know how it works so i won't go on about it but has anyone had any experiences with it, is £500 a good price or can i get it cheaper elsewhere?

Thanks in advance.
