Mileage 'MOA' - wtf? Now you have to ask them nicely what the mileage is as they won't specify on the website? I hope this isn't a 'thing' that car dealers are going to adopt, I've never seen it done here. :?

Delivery miles-
They vary quite a lot - and who knows how the “new car “ has been thrashed from cold?

4pot 2.0i now around £27k , considering they were at £30k 6 months ago i was expecting to see them even lower with the CV19 shutdown

the 40i also seem to be holding firm at £35k but you have to imagine that fastforward 3 months these figures will drop

i did spend the day last month with Number5 & his recently acquired 3.0i & there are many positives to the G29 :driving: the ducktail bootlid is cool & interior is particular swish though the front styling on all & terrible design of the exhaust outlets on the 40i both negatives for me :( i much prefer the two single outlets of the non 40i from a aesthetic point 8)

I don’t mind the front but agree the round pipes on the 2.0 cars look better than the 3.0’s. Not a deal breaker though as hopefully we will see in the fullness of.....:wink:

One advantage to the M40i pipes is that they seem to stay clean inside so always look nice. Much better than the round ones on my old 35iS which were a mess

I'm not sure if there's a rear diffuser available yet to make it a quad, or if this is just a photoshop but it looks better than the M40i boxes

Or perhaps this just a standard M40i Diffuser with the boxes removed, and twin tips put on, which if so could make things a lot easier

Remus and Manhart are doing crazy systems too. If not already have a look at “Hi I’m SHMEEEEEEEEE” on YouTube on the Manhart system, It sounds off the scale...! The Remus is a snip @ £3650-00.... :o :o

I think they just use the standard diffuser too.

    The new Z4 was already behind the times when it was launched. Very surprised BMW didn't make the Z4 a hybrid. They had the technology in the i8. All they had to do was transfer it to the Z4 and they would have been onto a winner that would be future proofed. 1500cc engine driving the rears with electric engines on the front wheels. 4 wheel drive rocketship

    Here’s something that I didn’t think I’d see, BMW selling a non standard car as an AUC. Interesting thing is they’re quoting the colour as black.

    I like the external colour but this really proves the point, red and green should never be seen..............

      What a clash of colours!

      I like the Red
      I like the Green

      But definitely not when put together - I couldn’t live with it - someone must have liked it tho!

      I like the green too, not so sure on the red, but only because I’ve not seen it personally. I seem to recall people saying it was more orange than red so would need to see it properly first before making judgment :thumbsup:

      I wonder how you would stand if there was an issue with the paint?

      I’m presuming that it’s wrapped since the colour shows as black on the site but I remember Raven saying that when they redid his wrap his black car was covered in wee nicks and scratches from cutting the wrap. Wonder what would happen 12 months in if this started rusting below the wrap and the wrap had to come off to investigate? They couldn’t take the bonnet and one wing off for a look and leave the rest green :lol:

      The other thing I thought about was what if you/they while removing the wrap lifted the original paint while doing so.
