BMW 220D xdrive Gran Tourer Msport

Post by Sid10 » Thu May 18, 2017 9:02 am

Hi newbie here, we traded our 2011 X1 for an ex demo 2016 Gran Tourer 2016 with 3806 miles. Due to growing family 7 seats was a must, 2 months in our impressions are that is a fantastic car, drives great with the 8 speed auto, panoramic roof and huge boot, even the kids love the extra space.
I also have a BMW X5 so not new to BMW , will try to post some pics later.

Hi Sid

Welcome to the forum nice to see another Tourer coming on-board and as you've stated very different which is one of the problems people criticize without at least driving one and then making a relevant comment. No doubt one area you've seen major difference is the driver's room is so much more?

Hi thanks , yes much improvement on room and toys , the X1 was a 20d xdrive se it was a decent enough car but as the kids are growing up it became apparent that it was just too small for our needs . The 220d feels a lot more modern and better finished off with being an M sport it had just about everything as standard , just pano roof and extended storage added . The car even finds a space and parks itself which is a bit un nerving to start off with .
Just need some winter wheels now but prices are crazy as ever , I bought a brand new set of X1 wheels 2 years ago for £750 from a main dealer they want over 2k now for this , is their a dealer to go through on here that offers a good discount ?

There are a couple of sponsors on the forum and one in particular seems to have god reviews but I don't think they supply BMW original, to be honest we don't do that much mileage due to my being abroad so we've not bothered going down that road this time.

Hi thanks ! Just trying to get set up for next winter contacted 3 dealers at the moment all on back order until July , they are advising ordering them before then otherwise they can't guarantee delivery before October . Seems mad to me .

For the last few years I've just had winter tyres fitted in October, and had 'em taken off in April/ May for a couple of quid at our local tyre place - however this was on our old Lexus. I've seen a few posts on here suggesting winter wheels... Will a set of tyres matching the 18" wheels not be sufficient do you lot reckon?

Hi unfortunately they dont recommend continually swapping tyres with wheels as the beading is only supposed to be used once on a runflat tyre !

Nice one Sid, thanks for that. Looks like I'll have to search out a whole set of wheels then.
