Yh I was lucky with mine as when I happened to be looking they still had some with the spec I have left... Only had 10!

Does the supaguard treatment really work? My dealer has built it into the total cost...

Save your cash and drop the Supaguard treatment, very overpiced wax. Stick a decent cost of wax on yourself and unless you are mega particular this will be good enough for most people and save the 300 the dealer is charging.

Not only that dealers never prepare the car properly so it can do more harm than good.

I collected my games car last Thursday... very happy with it. Same 320d ed, was registered Apr 12 and had just 3900 on clock. Fully specked, pro nav, apps, folding mirrors, parking f&b, 5yr service..etc... The inside was showroom clean, no sctatches or marks on the brushed ali. outside spotless but for a couple stone chips on the grill. Only disappointment... the sound system.. from an Audi A4 7 speakers + sub to this 4 speaker setup...

I bought my first BMW from these guys. I hadn't even seen the car. A great chap called Owen gave me a no frills description of all issues and had many rectified and they got it delivered to Newcastle for me. there was a little mixup with the delivery method, for which they eventually compensated me. But it was overall a great service and experience. Good dealership.

congrats on the car. But if you were actually there you should have driven it!

I too have an olympic car....I only have the sound system from a ford focus to compare it too so am quite pleased with the system...think you'll find that your car has 6 speakers...there are 2 under the front seats.

Not got time to look for gold medals due to playing with all the toys that they came with.

NISFAN.. no gold....but enjoying the upgrade from the Audi A4 i had, and still getting to know the car. Popped into the dealer feeling real stupid and asked how to turn the radio off when the ignition is off... according to the manual.. the on/off/volume button will switch the radio off when the ignition is off.... mine just mutes.... He told me thats German.... mute means off..... Thats news to me!!
Only goes off when i lock the doors.

I hear you, BMW is a much better drivers car, sticks to the road well. And don't worry about the radio, the whole power thing threw me, I've not had a car before that you can leave running and lock the doors.

I had a shock with this on my previous F11 5 Series Touring. I went to a retail park, parked, pressed the start/stop button (or so I thought) got out , locked the car and went shopping for 30 minutes. When I walked back to the car I heard an engine running and realised it was my car - never did it again.

Very useful though on the drive on cold mornings without fear of a TWOC'er driving off with the car whilst it was defrosting.
