I sometimes use the A508 of a morning on my way to MK, but have been using the M1 due to the Road works at Roade. Obviously a popular place for M135i's :)

Scotthall seem alright. Booked in for a service soon and the service seems good. Better than Wollaston Northampton

How you finding the F20 over the E82 ?
I loved the E82 and kept it for 2 years longer than originally intended as couldn't find anything (that I could afford) that I was willing to swap it for until they announced the M135i. The power delivery is pretty similar in the M135i, but the auto box is great and the car seems more planted and better built. So far I'm very happy with the upgrade!

Re. dealerships, I haven't used Scotthall for servicing (but may do next time) as Wollaston is far more convenient for work. The servicing team at Wollaston seems to have improved over the last year or so, but I have always had very poor experiences with their new and used car sales departments. The last 5 cars my wife and I have bought have been BMW/Minis, and our 1st visit each time to try and buy them has been to Wollaston. However, due to their attitude and seeming lack of interest in selling cars we are yet to buy one from them!

As an example we popped in while passing one weekend in June to enquire about the M135i, and the 2 new car salesmen were both sat at their desks without customers. Neither of them acknowledged our presence, and eventually an assistant came over to see what we wanted. I asked if I could speak to someone about the M135i and was told to phone them up on Monday to make an appointment for when they were quieter?!? Needless to say we left never to return.

Scotthall on the other hand have always been friendly and approachable, and will be the 1st port of call when we next look to replace our cars.

Interesting as I have bought 7 MINI's and 7 BMW's from Wollaston and have always found them very helpful. I can't compare with Scothall in MK ans I have never used them.
