Re: Pro Nav vs Business Nav in 2019

Pro Nav is miles, and I mean, miles faster to start up and select a route... and when using music whether on the HDD built in or via USB it fires up and selects tracks promptly. Interesting that it's faster, what sort of time difference are you talking about? I have Bus nav and there is slight dela...

Re: Pro Nav vs Business Nav in 2019

Can't comment on the 2019 version, but I have a car with Pro Nav and one with Business Nav which I upgraded to the 8.8" screen. Pro Nav is miles, and I mean, miles faster to start up and select a route. The RTTI is fantastic, it cut 3 hours off a 350 mile journey for me a month ago and when using mu...

Re: Cost of brake fluid change - 4+ service?

I think mine a year ago was £40-50 then VAT plus the standard £20 for some reason that BMW charge so it came out around £80. I did get an MOT done at the same time so it skewed the total.

Re: Anyone on here been a bit naughty?

To me speeding in towns and villages/built up areas is way worse than on motorways. Amen to that. I'd never forgive myself if a child stepped into the road and I clipped and hurt them in a built up area. Regardless of the noise the car makes and how fast I go on the B roads leading up to a built up...

Re: Size 6 women's underwear found in car after dealership visit

The CCTV footage can’t be shown due to GDPR he tells me. And I later find out that BMW UK themselves can’t even request the footage. So what’s the point - Cooper Teesside can say anything they like about the CCTV footage to match their story and false witness statements. Hey there, https://ico.org....

Re: Coral Leather - discontinued ???

Wow good work! Yeah the good cars you just have to gamble on and go for them at asking otherwise you’ll miss them. Leccy seats were always the stumbling block for me, which is why I decided to look at new, but then realised you couldn’t get the spec I wanted new wrt colour, haha. Usually you buy ne...

Re: Potential issue?

I'm there again in the morning, judging by the pin that's near new roadway between Jet Parks 1 and 2 heading towards the council estates in Wythenshawe. From local knowledge, certainly no glide path there and it's not an open area to get smacked by a radar and as I've said it's never happened before...

Re: Potential issue?

Must be different radars as I've had 3 BMW's and have worked at Manchester Airport for 4 years now and I've never seen that.

Re: Bizzare BMW Process

Signing the finance documents I can understand, they can get the money in place ready for the registration and everything when you arrive at the dealer so that looks normal. However, I think you're right to feel aggrieved regarding registering and receiving your V5C AND losing out on your tax too. I...

Re: Coral Leather - discontinued ???

I’d genuinely fancied a new silver with coral red and manual box, but even before Shadow Edition was a thing I think they’d stopped manuals and silver paint too. The options list narrowed loads on the 140i not long after introduction. Not wanting to rub salt in the wounds but I collected a silver 3...

Re: BMW 140i - PCP or HP

Hey OP, Some simple differences so you can make your own choice: > PCP finance: + low deposit, reduced monthlies for shorter time (3-4 years). - high balloon payment/option to return car/option to roll capital into another machine. > HP: - medium/high deposit, higher monthlies (up to 5 years). + NO ...

IIRC coral red was discontinued on 1er when the Shadow Edition launched parallel to the standard M140i.

Re: Have anyone ever bought back a car they have sold?

Is it like boning an old girlfriend? :) I went to look at a car that I specced up and ordered then walked away from 3 years ago and it came back on the market with the attention of bringing it home. After visiting the dealer, it was less like boning an old girlfriend instead was returning to look a...
