Re: new 118i comparison to m135i

Kind of pointless even attempting to compare the two IMO.

Why have you not test drove the m135i lol?

Completely pointless thread.

Re: Insurance having your eyes out!

I had an insanely strange bit of luck this year. Last year with axa was £800. Reversed into someone (parking sensors didn't pick it up due to a problem with idrive....which still exists) £3k claim as they needed a new door. luckily no damage to mine other than paint. Renewed start of august there fo...

Re: Quality Enhancement

Interesting because I have been dealing with a faulty idrive system since I got it, but refuse to let them take it apart until they have a firm solution.

Re: Trade in Value

So you are going through the whole hassle of changing to a worse car to save £800 over the term?
Changing to another new car that you also won't drive?

I think you are mad.

Just buy a second had cheap cayman on finance that won't lose value and you can sell if you get bored.

Re: Car broken into on driveway

Other than you leaving it unlocked, and you don't have comfort access for the relayer.

Only thing I can think of is you sat on the key and wound all the windows down?
Holding the unlock button will unlock car and wind windows down.

Re: Car park exit ramp damage, advice please

On face value the car park operator is liable, though you either need to prove that the "spike" did the damage, or they need to admit liability. Then there is no need to involve your insurer (which could hike you premiums even if the claim is not against your insurance), simply get a parts and labo...

Re: Order cancelled by factory - absolutely gutted!!!!

I seem to be part of a small breed on here that didn't get on with the auto. Swapped it for the manual after 18 months and haven't looked back. I think these cars are at breaking point for the manual though. Anything with higher car immediately needs an auto box. Each to their own again, but I would...

Re: speccing up a new M140i shad

Comfort access is a security risk so avoid at all costs. Unless you are really into music, or intend on doing a lot of long journeys I wouldn't bother upgrading the speakers Hk isn't even that good. Doubt you need the sunroof. Remember most of these cost you more and don't add any value in the used ...

Re: M140i Shadow Edition - Leasing advice (TRL?)

Sounds like the lease deal is cheaper by a good bit given 3 years instead of 4.

Issue with lease is that you have to keep the car for that period, rather than having the choice to change.
You could see if any dealer would match it though.

Re: Paint Damage - What's the best solution?

Update. Spoken with the other party and we've decided he wants to go through insurance. I've notified my insurance of the incident and they have taken his details and said the costs will be claimed back. They have offered a local approved repairer to sort the damaged but it is not BMW approved, I s...
