  1. Well done on your new purchase, was that their demo car? If so I did want to have a test drive in it last Friday and was told it was sold. Glad you like it though!
  2. I’m looking at the moment and have been told 19 weeks to build plus delivery time on top.
  3. Currently right on the border between Shropshire and Herefordshire. Not in the forces mate but DtD looks like getting my money, I just need to get my new home mortgage sorted and I can get on with the job of a new car to go with it!!
  4. A few of you have suggested that I look at DtD rather than Carwow, you are absolutely correct. Carwow for my spec car was £44,731, same spec at DtD £40,306. Looks like I maybe able to add an Akrapovic exhaust and still be less than CW! Thanks to all that gave me the heads up 👍😉
  5. Nice one Jeff, your car looks very similar to what I’ve just built and waiting on a price now. I’ve just watched the Carwow drag race between a 8R v 7.5R and the 8 was quicker in every test apart from the brake test.
  6. Thanks for the reply, I bought my current R from my local dealer but through Carwow. I’ve told the dealer to make sure their pencil is sharp and to offer the best deal they can. I’ve also got Carwow figures coming in to compare and use as a stick!
  7. I’m waiting for my dealer to come back to me with discount figures on a £46k car but thought an order now could be September delivery. Based on what you are all experiencing I would think it would be longer unless they have booked slots.
  8. I spoke to my dealer as I’d like to place an order and they say that they will keep the quote APR if it goes up but will reduce it if it drops. Not sure if all dealers do that?
  9. I had mine replaced on Saturday morning. Interestingly, having already asked prior to agreeing the warranty work, I was asked again ‘has it got wet?’ How’s everyone else getting on with their claims?
  10. +1 I asked and have a printed copy of mine as well. The online site still doesn’t show the first or second service on my car.
  11. My GTD 7 was night blue, the R is Atlantic blue. 😉
  12. I ordered an OBD11 which came and I added the multi colour dash lights. I thought I’d start small!
  13. I’ve had a text from the dealer to say the replacement is in and contact them to arrange for them to fit.
  14. Hi all, im not sure this is in the right place but my son is sending his BMW 3 series back to the finance company as he’s paid more than half the amount borrowed. The car is generally clean and tidy, no bumps, scratches etc, however, the diamond cut alloys are rough where the lacquer has come away. Should he get them refurbed? The car is a 62 plate with 69k miles. thanks in advance and he’s bought a Golf as a replacement, albeit an oil burner! Kev
  15. I’m a yes for the pano roof, having had 2 Golfs without I added one to my R and love it. I pop the back up for a little ventilation on cooler days and it adds that light and airy feel to the cabin. If you want the darker feel slide the net across and while it’s not like not having one, it’s a comprise. No rattles or squeaks from mine in 15K. Will the next new car I order have one? Yes in a heartbeat.
  16. Just bought 4 PS4 18” for my Cadiz from Kwik fit for £346 fully fitted. They have 15% off 4 with code MCC. I did look at the PS4s earlier in the week but they were not an option today but were quoting at £116 each when they were available.
  17. To be fair it needed a good polish as it was showing signs of marks, they just topped it up to the point of it needing it rather than I’ll do it one day! Besides I actually enjoyed it 😀
  18. Fantastic looking R you have Bec, is the rear spoiler standard or an extra with the performance pack?
  19. I polished the ‘cleaning marks’ left by the garage at last Fridays service. Not a professional job but so much better than before.
  20. I had my second service yesterday and said about the insulation and they have agreed to replace under warranty. Only downside, they need to order it so another trip to the dealers.
  21. Mine is the same. I did post a picture with running water in the near side one which happened after I went through a large puddle. It dried out on its own.
  22. Great advice. The tyre fitters that do my cars always hand the locking key back to me to put in the boot. I would imagine that someone left a while ago without there’s and needed to get a wheel off!! As a side issue, I took my son’s car last year for an MOT and the garage he went to put one tyre on the wrong way around (inside on the outside), the MOT garage failed due to that but swapped it to the correct way. A few weeks later we went to change the brake pads and broke the key off because the MOT garage had over tightened the wheel nuts.
  23. I’ve had a couple of bikes, the last was a Ducati Multi. Great underrated bike and sold it to buy a Cooper S many years ago. Still get the urge every now and then but the roads are just so bad for anything quick, so I’ve just bought a Chinese copy of a monkey bike.
  24. Absolutely crazy. If they want to race go to a track. Good job no one was on the pavement when it landed they wouldn’t stand a chance.
  25. Mine will be 2 years old on the 1st March this year and it’s shrunk. Reading the ‘what’s covered’ I’d say that it is covered under the standard warranty as long as you’ve not done more than 100,000 miles? Why not see if you can get a different dealer to look at it? I’ll be asking for mine to be done at it’s next service in March. I’ll keep you posted!
