    Hi

    I am just about to put a deposit down on a 130i M sport and just want to make sure I'm making the right decision!

    I love the car but the only thing that is niggling is the ride. Its a bit jiggly if that makes any sense. Is this due to the run flat tyres? Can they be changed as there is no room for a spare?

    Any other pre buying advice would also be great. i will peruse the threads now.

    Thanks in advance

    dont know about the tyres though

    welcome to the forum
    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.

    I take it you have negotiated your price because if not BMW are very difficult to move on this but they do however give little freebies if you haggle with them hard enough.
    The runflats do kill the ride slightly (a friend has them on her 1series) and they are expensive to replace as well as I recall. I would go for it though as it's a cracking car!!!
    Good Luck

    Blimey that was quick

    Thanks guys

    I'm buying from a dealer so I hope its HPI clear etc! ;-)

    I've managed to lower the price quite a lot so far. Its down to £13,250 which is 2k lower than it was. I am suspicious though as all the other dealers say they would never lower it that far, but is that jealousy?!

    I've only ever bought from a main dealer once before so its all a bit new going into fancy showrooms. I think they thought i was there to clean the toilets!

    rfts and spring rates ruin these cars they really want new springs and shocks as well as proper tyres to ride and handle properly.
