Haha! No dude...I've been going there for ages, and they've always been friendly, very polite and super efficient (they never forget to bring the clip-board when signing for petrol by credit card!). Only bad part is, their tyre-filler used to be on 24x7, now they turn off the compressor at 11 p.m. so no more midnight tyre pressure checks!

OK, thanks for the kind words again. Better try and charge my camera and remember to take it to Amby Valley for the event!

Default 325i - my dream!

Congrats KBK, Wonderful choice.
I hope my next new car can be a 325i. However, right now I'm broke.

Hi,
Congrats for the Hot Looking M/C...........Reg-Xenons may be Home setting is not done .........This is common on Skoda people just adjust the screw for head light alignment and not doing the Home settings.

Regards,
PJ

Hi guys, the car's lights got fixed, I'm told there was a software problem and the software needed to be reloaded. Either way, it's irrelevant, because I've decided I don't want the car...I'm heading for something a bit "different"!

I haven't discussed it fully with the dealer yet, but I'm going to insist that there's no price hit, or I won't make the switch! As for what it is...

I never took any pics to be honest. The dealership guys took a couple of pics at the time of the delivery at the dealership, but I don't have those with me. If I get them, I'll post them.

Errr.....WHAT You are returning your 1 week old BMW 325i? Whatever is the replacement.....I am sure its a giant leap ahead! I have a feeling this has something to do with some *car* that you checked out at the BMW event.

German cars and their complicated electronics.

Actually my car was not even with me for 24 hours. It's not even registered in my name. For all intents and purposes, it's still brand new.

Update on the lights: Apparently there was a loose contact in one of the plugs somewhere in the drivers'-side footwell, it was not a software problem. So when contact was made, no problem with lights, when contact broke, the problem would appear!
