    Well fear not it is the wife I’m buying for and not you ! The fact they will be ‘updated’ next year makes them attractive financially and the fact that her current car is 12 years old means that ‘dated inside’ is very relative.......

    Which Sat Nav system have you got - mine does all you suggest are missing and provides a very accurate prediction of destination arrival time which it adjusts as traffic conditions change during the journey......

    If I’m honest I dislike the ‘look’ of the 1 Series whereas as the 2 looks ok. What in your mind makes the 1 a better option?

    Following a bit of a gastric bug the other half drove mine for the first time on a long run yesterday - well 160 miles - she's now suggesting she rather likes it and its not as big to drive as she thought. Problem is she's now considering the BMW 220i instead of the Golf - just my luck lol......

    Collection advice

    To BMW's credit my experience has always been that they go over the top in walking you through and around your new car - if you are anything like me and my last experience after 45 mins you'll simply want to drive the thing and get going, that said whenever I have raised anything after collection the dealer has always dealt with it promptly and effectively. Most reputable brands do understand that you may spot something once you get over the initial 'excitement' so don't worry too much and enjoy the experience.....
