    Depreciation in 12 months.

    I totally agree that everyone has their own requirements. It has cost you £460 a month to run a new car for 2 years. As you are now trading again it will continue to cost £460 assuming depn remains constant. Taking your example of the 2017 model. If you bought for cash & it loses the same. In 2021 it's worth £16k. It won't continue to depreciate at the same rate if you keep it so the monthly cost of depn goes down. My comment was based on car depreciation is not normally on a straight line basis so if you want to beat depreciation buying used and keeping is the way to go. If you are a frequent changer then leasing may well be the better bet. Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Thanks for that. I can now understand why. You obviously have a very well specced car . Unfortunately when you trade back most dealers treat the options as having little or no value (it's usually a different story when you are buying) I know this doesn't much help with the shock of your car's valuation. However as you've got a decent car hopefully it's not too much of a hardship to continue living with it I might suggest if you are someone who likes to change cars regularly, then leasing might work out as a cheaper option for you Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Having looked at this again. That's painful. I did a quick search for a 2 year lease on a 520d MSport which is £457 per month Inc VAT on 2 years at 12,500 miles with an initial rental of 1 month. It won't be quite as well specced as yours. BTW should the list price have been £41k rather than £51k Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    No but a pre owned car depreciates at a lower rate than a new one. Taking the OP, his car was listed at £51k he secured an £18k discount and yet it still lost £11k. Assuming the dealer who has offered £22k sells it to the next buyer for £25k it's unlikely it will lose £11k in the next year Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    Screenwash - Best Price

    Pm me. I don't mind sharing with anyone on the forum but as it's such a good deal didn't want it going everywhere and having the deal withdrawn Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    My local dealer was more expensive but managed to beat your price with a bit of online research. Just ordered 5l for £12.93 Inc FedEx delivery .... result Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    Wiper Blades for 2013 F10

    At least you got your cash back. Strangely enough the squeak has now gone from my blades ....... for now !! Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  9. We all have our own preferences so good to share. The difference is that Magma is a fallout remover whereas Bilt Hamber is a combined fallout remover and cleaner. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  10. It's good stuff. Really good for a deep clean rather than maintenance. Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Wiper Blades for 2013 F10

    Thanks for sharing the model number. I know BMW don't make wiper blades so it appears they may be using Bosch now. If anyone could confirm that would be great. I don't really want to pay the dealer tax but similarly I don't want to spend £20 to find I've still got the squeal Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Wiper Blades for 2013 F10

    My current blades are Bosch - they've just started to squeak so is 12 months replacement about right for them ? Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk
  14. My blades are about 12 months old and developed a squeak as the wiper arm reaches the end of its travel. I'm going to have one more go at deep cleaning the screen - glass Polish then clay then fast glass. However assuming this doesn't cure the problem who makes the "OEM" blades for the F10 please ? I'm assuming it's a lot cheaper than buying the branded version through the dealer ? Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    I believe that's correct. The washers particularly the headlights can block with certain types of screen wash. I think you have more chance of this happening if you change brands and have a mix in your washer bottle
