Yup, my dad had a BMW for a while... :?

Always thought that they and Landrover Discovery drivers are the most obnoxious on the road. Get rid blackbat. ;)

Nah, Audi drivers are the worst. But yes I will be getting rid, just as soon as I can.

Granted, our decision was based on having an expanding family, but we recently got a Suzuki S-Cross which has been a pleasant surprise.

First car my sister test drove after passing her test was a Suzuki. My dad was in the car with her, wondering how she'd passed because she was hitting every junction too fast. It was only when he asked what she thought of the car at the end that he discovered she'd been terrified as she'd been pressing the brake pedal and nothing was happening.


And BMW drivers are definitely the worst. My dad's had three, I think... ;)

I think it'll be a Honda or a Toyota for me next.

Both of our Jazzes (Jazzi) were excellent and both Qashqai excellent. Enough to get a X-Trail next. The MX-5 is still the most fun I've ever had though - although the 3.0 A4 was close.

So far, they've agreed to pay for the parts, but are only going to contribute 30% towards labour.
Got an email yesterday following a further complaint, they're going to reimburse the rest of the labour.

So.... anyone wanna buy a BMW 1 series?

Yeah, sorry. I thought I'd just let you know on here though.

Not terrible, mostly cosmetic, but enough that whoever did it knew they did it.

I have a CLA, got it pretty much on release in 2014 - Love it, although its a bit awkward gettign the golf clubs in.

Was driving down the east lancs couple of weeks back and a rock came over from the otherside of the road. Obviously made me jump as it was flying at some speed, luckily it bounced just before my car but unluckily punched a hole through my front grill. managed to take out the bumper and centre mercedes star. Reckon its gonna cost me a bit, so will have to go via the insurance...

Any idea how much it will increase my premium by?
