  1. Hi....

    Welcome! Beautiful car!
  2. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    I have heard a few comments about the rear lights but my wife actually likes them, a lot! We do not expect any mechanical failures but we are not trusting French cars electrically so I hope the Citroen will prove us wrong and will be without any glitches! Style wise (exterior) we do like, even I like it! Interior design will take time to get used to though. Btw, I didn't know there is such an option after 6 months of PCP, hopefully we won't need to use it! Thanks for your input Nealpina. Vlady

    It's a bit out of our budget, nice car though. Probably the same reliability as a Citroen! My wife said she is not ready yet to move to a big SUV but will be considering this for her next car as she enjoyed high driving position of the Citroen.

    Citroen Grand C4 Picasso it is!
  5. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Hi, don't laugh but we saw yesterday at ASDA car park a Citroen C4 Grand Picasso and my wife loved the way it looks, I know I was saying she was saying she doesn't like French cars but we did a quick check and yo can get them for much less money that a Touran! We had a look today at 2.0ltr TDI Auto, took it for a test drive and again my wife liked it a lot and I was nicely surprised as well, yes we will need to get used to the interior as it is different to Germans but this is what my wife likes as well - it is different! The car £7k cheaper than Touran, fair enough that the car is 8 months old and has 9k miles but looks great and clean. We were going to pay for Touran cash but dealers were not coming forward with any decent offers so I gave up on them, we are thinking to take Picasso on PCP for 3 years and if we don't like it, well, we will give it back and always can go back to Germans! Honestly, we hated how VW treats you, they don't give a crap about the client, they sure that if I walk away someone else will walk in and buy it, fair enough but it all starts from sales and Citroen provided a Fantastic service, the guy was on our side, suggested a lot of things to lower monthly payments, knew his cars and was just a pleasant person, unlike VW salesman! Nealpina how do you find running costs for Citroen, do you have the car or just drove one? By the way, I apologise for my previous comments! Anyway, if you guys want to fire any comments feels free but as long as my wife is happy that all matters!

    Hi SuperDave, that's what ArnoldClark says. I popped in yesterday to see a 2nd dealer with 2 quotes (1 from the other dealer and 1 from CarWow) and told them where I would meet them, they couldn't so I walked away and will email or call the guy from Carwow to discuss conditions and another hidden charges. Thanks

    Thanks JDR, my colleague who is on his 2nd brand new Ford said he never paid these charges this is why questioned this. Thanks!
  8. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    These are 19's?! They don't look like! Can you fit wheel spacers at the back, I think they will make a difference, oh well, I need these spares too!

    Does anyone know what is the delivery charge being applied by the dealer? The quote I have includes £600 for delivery aka Delivery Charge, even though the garage is local to us! Is it always being charged to a client? Thanks

    Hi all, can anyone tell if you were charged for the delivery? The quote I have from local Arnold Clark garage includes the charge of £600! Is it normal? Also, we have 2 VW garages near me and both Arnold Clark, is it worth getting quotes from both of them or they will not compete each other? Cheers
  11. Newbie with an oldie

    Hi, welcome to the forum and the car looks very very nice, beautiful! Like the alloys! I know nothing about BMW GT5 though and don't know if you can add all these packages now, may be it would be better to search for the car that has it all. Regards bottom button on the key, when I press mine I got the boot to open and the same was on my e39 before that. Regards servicing, I know the guy who works in BMW garage and he does it for me in his own time (on a brake and after working hours). You can try B&M centre, Glasgow, the guys name Douglas, he worked for many many years in BMW garage and knows his stuff, I used I'm once, decent guy and cheaper than a BMW prices. Vlady

  13. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Hi Grizzle, I used Powdertec in Glasgow. Why I can't add a JPG file?
  14. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Picked up my summer wheels today after the refurb, decided to go with a bit darker colour for the summer, plus 2 new Kumhos! I can't upload the pictures though, it says contact us for assistance! Anyone else has this problem?

    Hi everyone, when you get quotes from Carwow or drivethedeal (or similar) do you include in quote warranty or services into pricing? Thanks
