Apparently there are three different Audio options to ponder over.

Maybe my prediction of 4 years was a little hasty.

Scamp - wanna run a book? I'll have a quid on 50 months.

I hadn't looked up the car until you posted the picture but I have to say it's a decent looking car. The blue colour or charcoal grey would be my preference.

Sort of like this beauty.

oh, good find definitely. I wish I was at that stage in my life where I could buy it and not worry about the number of doors it has
Maybe in 10 years time

Dot tell mission, did the test drive cause you to have a 'situation' then?

Default Re: sorry folks, ANOTHER car thread

so folks i took the M2 for a good couple of hrs on Friday....and absolutely loved it...however i wanted to compare it to some of the other cars that were kinda on my radar...so i first visited the merc show room in Deira to check out the C63....but those start at frigging 400k and so way out of my price range...however the sales guy suggested the C43, but didn't have one on hand for a test drive. He was suppose to ring me on Sat to confirm a test drive but I never heard from him and so i didn't bother....to be honest i didn't really like the dashboard and so wasn't too fussed.
On Saturday I visited VW to check out the Golf R to see if they had made any enhancements since i last had one 2 years ago...and although the price was very attractive for what you are getting (full spec 189k) there wasn't really much change in terms of engine capacity from the one i had previously and it would actually be a step down from my current M235i
I then visited Audi and test drove the RS3 and the TTRS - and although i don't like the shape of either car i just wanted to get a feel of driving it, and to be fair the TTRS was nice (the RS3 was ok) but it felt like i was driving a toy in comparison to the M2...i found the M2 extremely 'solid and sturdy' to drive...it felt like i was behind the wheel of something decent....the acceleration was by far superior to the other cars i drove.
I actually ended up taking the M2 again on Saturday for a couple hours.
The other thing to point out is the warranty and service package for the other cars are pants compared to what you get when you buy a beemer - with beemer you get service package for 5 years/100k km + repairs 5 years/200k km including replacement of disc pads and brakes, and warranty for 2 years unlimited mileage.
