Hello all. My name is Rich, I am from Birmingham and that will do from me.
I registered for some advice seeing as I've never owned a Bimmer before.
I've had my eye on the 316 mainly because it will be cheaper to insure and I like the look of the compact. My Corsa is too boring for me now, Im looking for something more grown up because I hate the "17 Year old driver" image I get purely for owning a car which has affordable insurance. (Im 22 by the way, just to clear that up)
Firstly, how reliable are they really? Obviously it depends on how well maintained it is but roughly when do the problems begin in terms of mileage? 80,000? 150,000?
Secondly, it is either a 316 or a Vauxhall Vectra. Same engine size, similar spec but a lot cheaper. The question is why? Is the BMW that much better and should I hold out for one....
Thanks for reading and hopefully by next year I'll have my motor!
