Oh No Not Again !

I'm saying goodbye to my 6 f13 series that I've had for almost 9 months now. Wicked ride... I would the best BMW I've owned in terms of the full package.

I do miss my 328 f30 those of you who are undecided on the 328.. it's an awesome ride. What more of the 428 and 435s

I've made the brave move to Audi... my first ever!

Don't suppose you'd sell your 6 for a good price to a fellow bimmer fan?

Wow that's a fast turn around. I'm thinking it's probably a Audi RS7, or probably the R8

i'm thinking to sell my F31 328 Touring too, a bit disappointing on my tyres (yep, quarterly meeting at BMW Service for tyres! and i had expressed my worst frustruation with my tyre experience in my whole car ownership and driving for years - 4 tyres in 12 months!)

guess what BMW sydney sales and service team don't really care and they want to charge me for labour of a wheel bolt damaged by Tempe Tyre when i went there to repair the puncture (only minor surface, not leaking) and realized not able to take one bolt out (very tight from last replacement).

Now thinking about the new C or the next a4 wait for the Ford F150. Definitely not going to get punctures easily!

F31 is very practical but can't stand for RFT... was at BMW sydney and requested my puncture tyre back after wheel replacement (tyre insurance of course they charge full price! so lower my annual allowance), pick up the car and i must see an invisible RFT in my boot, ran back in service and demanded my wheel back. So the service staff pick it up and put in my boot. Interesting thing is they have a large roll of white plastic bag in the concierge so it must be a frequent request item!!

The new C class interior is much superior and surprisingly longer than my F31. Will probably wait for what Audi offers. A6 is definitely a nice car to drive, pioneer for interior.

That might just suit the good Doctor (KT).

Sorry to thread jack, KT I just replaced my RFT's with Michelin PSS's, problem solved my sweet.

I saw the new C class in the Mercedes showroom in Paris about 2 months ago, and I must say I was impressed... Ive been eyeing off the very nice C300 Hybrid, attractive price, standard features, even the options list was palatable. Not sure how comparable it is to a F30 Hybrid, although the C is nearly $50K cheaper... and an insane amount more torque.
