  1. New car time - decisions decisions

    Voted for 535 touring. On my 3rd touring and my 2nd 535i started thinking of changing but when I look nothing grabs me like the 535 touring perfect blend of space and performance.
  2. What wrap are you thinking of?
  3. Time to Change the Company Car

    Just a guess could it be down to the spec of the car, some options maybe in short supply.
  4. Snow foam followed by Swissvax car bath then Auto finesse Oblitarate then Auto Finesse Iron out (was surprised how much purple streaking occurred as the car has done very little milage)then washed again then dried with towels. Once fully dry I went over the full car with Swissvax Regular Cleaner Fluid then 2 coats of Swissvax Shield wax. The wheels got the same treatment all by hand not a machine polisher in site. May seem a little over the top but I enjoy doing it and the car is parked outdoors all year round. As happen to sshooie's neighbour an hour after finishing it it started raining and has not yet stopped.
  5. Gave it it"s 6 month deep clean. Took just under 10 hours to do the exterior will do the interior tomorrow. Now having a well deserved rest.
  6. Bye bye F11, hello G32

    Nice looking motor much better than the 5GT. How do you find it compared to your F11 eg build quality and interior materials ?
  7. De-laminating trim

    Thanks for the reply I will give the dealer a ring tomorrow see what they say. I thought it was a film at first but when you get your nail behind it's like a really thin hard plastic.
  8. De-laminating trim

    Hi All Cleaned the interior of the car today and noticed that some of the trim around on the aircon control unit appears to be de-laminating. I noticed it some time ago but was only a tiny bit in the corner of the unit but it appears to be spreading (see pic below). You can actually get your nail behind the lifted area which is what makes me think it’s de-laminating. The car had just turn 17 months old and I have owned it from And the unit has only ever been cleaned with a dry micro fibre or Swissvax interior detailed. Just wondered if anyone else has had this issue and if it was covered by the warranty. Would you guys try getting it changed under warranty or just live with it. I ask as I know I can be a bit picky when it comes to my car.
  9. Time to Change the Company Car

    Nice spec there backtobeemer. Have to to agree with you about the 4 zone aircon and heated rear seats I have them in my F11 and if you carry rear passengers on a regular basis as I do they are a must. I have HUD only used it a couple of times don’t think I’ll spec it next time. To me the main option you’ve pick is the 3L petrol engine it’s a peach hope you enjoy it as much as I’m enjoying my 3L F11.
  10. Time to Change the Company Car

    How did you find the Xdrive system? Hope me you can make your mind up on your options.
  11. How Long

    Hi All Not sure if this is the right section but as seen as this is the latest 5 series section thought you guys would be the best to ask. Had a call from the My Dealer to saying the usual stuff "they got to sell 30 cars this month and as a loyal customer with a car under 2 years old would I be interested in changing". Didn't bother as due to me being on 4 year PCP and have only had the car 18 months and covered just over 3000 miles. Got me thinking though how long before your PCP is due do you guys start looking at new cars? Cheers Steven
  12. Time to Change the Company Car

    Thanks for the Pics. Have to say the design interior and exterior is starting to grow on me.
  13. Discounts on new

    Had this with my current car used Coast2Coast to get a quote (25% discount) which my local Dealer reluctantly matched. No umbrella no interest in discounting any service plan really no interest at all part from giving me the key and saying goodbye. I can live with it though as I have found with most car Dealers once you've signed the paperwork and they've taken the money they all lose interest. When it comes to changing this I will do the same again as I can live with crap customer service for a 25% discount. Like others have said the Dealers seem to make the money on your PX or they have in my case PX my last car got £18000 for it Dealer put it on his forecourt for nearly £28000 nice little profit.
  14. Discounts on new

    Hope the 24% discounts are on when I look to change. Like you say on a £60K car it's a heck of a difference.
  15. Time to Change the Company Car

    Some pics and opinions would be nice if it's possible as G31 540i is on my next car list.
