Re: Struggling with Insurance

Said 27 year old was me, as I mentioned on that post the BMW insurance will be scheme based and they will have criteria that must be met in order to get a quote, postcodes & driver age etc. If you don’t fit it’ll be a no quote - if you do then you’ll get a cracking quote. In the grand scheme of thin...

Re: M140i SE Deal...

You also have to factor in a lot of PCP deals will be purchased by youngsters who see the highlight figures, they aren't and shouldn't necessarily be interested in alternative methods nor ISA's/stocks and shares because that's not the way of my generation, I was fortunate enough to be raised by pare...

Good point that Octavius makes, my prices are of course based upon a private sale.

Re: How much is my car worth?

Manual or Auto?

On current values (I'm looking myself, so have seen a lot) I'd say around the £14k-£14.5k mark.

A lot of them are sticking around though so depends how keen you are to sell etc.

Re: Insurance Tips

It’s bad how we get used to crap service in this day and age isn’t it!
Occasionally it’s nice to deal with people who are interested and do actually want to help!

Re: M135i EWG

Standard for standard there's no difference had my PWG following an EWG and literally no difference between them at all pull wise. It's just if you go tuning they seem to make an extra couple of horse.. But EWG models come with Launch Control if auto :D Thanks Rick, I think most I am looking at are...

Re: M135i EWG

EWG gets a bigger turbo exit, 3.5" vs 3". Give better breathing, slightly more power (about 6bhp so pretty negligible), and better for tuning too. Have you read the model year differences in the M-Lite FAQ Sticky? Thank you Marco, still as helpful as ever I see :D, all the things I have read advise...

Good morning All I just wondered if somebody can give me a brief summary of this.. Currently looking at M135i's and have noticed on a couple the mention of EWG, now I believe this to be electronic waste gate? presuming of course on the turbo. Is this seen as a positive or negative from a purchase pe...

Re: Insurance Tips

I did try BMW direct unfortunately they weren't able to provide me with a quotation, I suspect due to my age (27) They seem to work wonders for a lot of people, but it will more than likely be a specific scheme so if your credentials fit they will be unbeatable but if you don't then you aren't comin...

Re: Insurance Tips

Just a quick update on this, I have stepped up the search for an M135i was originally going to wait until April/May. Ran it through the comparison sites and managed to obtain a quote at just over £500 which was a real surprise as I had pretty much resigned myself to paying £800, I just need to find ...

Re: m140i vs new supra

The pricing is almost irrelevant to a certain degree as silly as that sounds. The majority will be purchased on PCP and leasing etc. so there more than likely be discounts and dealer contributions, as well as lease deals to get a few on the roads early doors. For me I always worry, as people have me...

Re: Stolen and Recovered and ‘Fixed’ - Help Please

I still believe that when your car is stolen you should be paid out and that's that, it's all well good it being repaired and visually inspected but you never really know the damage that has been caused - plus the fact it must be (not speaking from experience) a horrible feeling to drive the car aga...
