    Bought 3 weeks ago..
    Touring model..
    now with 4500 miles on the clock.
    Rides beautifully, as new.

    The gearbox has developed a bit of a personality, I'm getting used to it. Does anyone have any thoughts on how the automatic gearbox naturally behaves?
    Today, a little misfortune (I'm anal about how the car is driven, and really look after it), driving down into an underground car park, there was a gap in the centre piece (made out cement), separating the incoming and outgoing traffic, and I happened to drive the left wheel into it (size of a curb, approx 7cm in height) at 15miles an hour straight on. No damage apparent, or feeling in how the car drives or handles.. just the psychological effect that you become hypersensitive...
    How strong is the suspension, should I be looking out for anything else (bushings/wheel alignment etc)..?! Should I get the car checked out just in case?

    Anything to worry about, or am I just faffing around!?

    ...just to say that I'm now a very very proud owner of a BMW. Sweet.

    Thanks, and good to be part of the forum!

    Yep, you got it,,,, stop faffing around. :-)

    Miner nocks are nothing to worry about, it's when you scrap a wheel or mark the paint. I am paranoid about that kinda stuff as well. There fairly solid so enjoy the drive....

    "O" and picks of the car Please


    BMW its an addiction, Its a drug
