Just bought the wife a Beemer after her X-Type got written off (a nice chap reversed out of his drive into the side, and tried to blame me)
It is nice car in carbon black, I need to see how we get on with it. It is an Auto and she is not used to those. I did have an issue with the loan car (an auto) not working, it would not go. Turned out haveing 2 pedals, she used her left foot on the brake, that's all it was. We both need to get used to not changing gear
I will tax it in the morning and it will be drawn into service. I need to plan on the weekend for a once over on the car. I have seen comments on EGR valves. I want to change oil, filter, air filter, fuel filter, change the gear oil, check the diff, check the bits people are suggesting need checking (EGR etc). Ordered mats and touch up paint. A few little jobs to do and parts to order.
Our last car was LPG, so this will end up costing more to run. I was told to avoid the 520D due to cam chain problems.
Fingers crossed for a positive experience. My wife is a techno phobe, I look forward to teaching her how to use the Idrive system ;0
Lots of useful info on this site. I look forward to browsing the forum for more info.
