So I didn’t even drive the car...as I the colour combo is not nice (sorry)..
however I did walk away with an order for a Frozen Grey with options and a very good deal...
The dealership were very good and no nonsense.
Should get it in a couple of weeks.

Good choice. I think the blue with red interior is a very brave choice and not something that would appeal to many. I ended up choosing black with the blue exterior as I wasn't sure about the other colours.

Anyway, Pictures are required when you get the new one!

They had a Blue / Black i20 in the showroom - it really made the decision much easier not to go for the pre reg Blue / Red that I had the deposit on.

With E89s still being touted at £21k for a 2015/2016 model it’s a strange world...

Wbac - have just offered £18.7k for my very low miles high spec 35is (Sept 2016) Needless to say I'm not selling it :thumbsup:

£17k off list..not as fast as your 35is was..still fairly quick.. :driving:

Its a marmite car, some will love it, the faithful generally decry it, its your boat, you should float it..go and look at a G29 in detail and importantly take the same model for a test drive, not a 20i nor a 40i..

Given your history / experiences that, IMHO is the best way forward.. :fuelfire:

A bit worrying that they can't fill the technical details in correctly , but heh its a BMW dealer :poke:

Technically it should benefit from all the knowledge on the N20 engine so should be bullet proof, the ZF box is..

30 months warranty should alleviate SWMBO fears!! :thumbsup:

It's a good price but I reckon a £34K M40i will hold it's extra £3k for a good few years, meaning it won't actually cost you anything more.

So unless you're planning to keep the car forever a cheap M40i is probably a better buy.

I thought it's the B48 engine in that, same as the F56 MINI Cooper S but with a bit more power?

I'm due at the dealer tomorow to drop off the spare key for my soon to be ex-Z. They have one there so I'll take a look. I will hold off for a few weeks before I do anything just to make sure I know how I feel about buying another car that I don't really need. :D

Yes it is the B48,,my reference to the N20 was its predecessor..the point was the N20 was first of a radically new design (for BMW), the B48 is the follow up with the collective benefit of hindsight so should have less bugs!..here's hoping!
