September 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

What was the dealer like?
I dislike dealing with BMW. As with any dealer there happy enough to take your money but dont want to know afterwards. They sort things out only after pestering them. I bought this when I was 21 and have always felt that BMW dont bother with me as much or give me the respect as they would if I was older! This is also the second BMW Ive had from a different dealer and I have found the same to be true again!
