quite disappointing, after buying a BMW 530d M Sport Estate, for I would say, ok'ish price.
I picked the car up, said FSH, and new MOT, however, I had to replace the rear pads pretty much straight away, although they gave me £40 of diesel, I am sure they were aware of the 'actual' cost.
However, when the pads were done, I had to have filters changed because of the horrible smell, new rear tyres, £180 each, so already within 2 months, £600+ spent on the car.....3 months in and the turbo has gone, another £300 from me, to cover diagnosis and additional parts recommended by BMW & my repair garage, a weeks car hire....the car has cost at least £1000 so far, and £1000 to the warranty company!
It now needs front pads and the tyres could do with being replaced!
The salesman (Lee) tried to be helpful, so i thought i would look to re-sell it to them, so after £2000+ spent, and a purchase price of £11.5k you would have though a little compassion, however, the offer was a laughable £9000...what do you say to that, I would have spent more to purchase a replacement car, but how do you justify the loss on a car you have only had for 3 months. If they could have offered me £10k to £10.5k I would have accepted and dealt with the loss...
If you buy a car from these guys, I would recommend that you get an inspection done, as I do not believe the cars are inspected thoroughly. Also HAD to pay £99 admin fee & £499 warranty.
