Thanks MM......

How much are they roughly? are they really tax free? In the UK, you're looking at around £53k........

Thanks

Try a Toyota Prius instead and cut your petrol costs (yes I know petrol is cheap in UAE) But a BMW M3 or M5 is a monster so I take it you love da speed!

i that they are even on sale here and it is unlikely they would cope with the 50deg plus heat in the summer.

why worry about petrol costs when its 1/4 the price of the UK?

S'more than a quarter of the uk, innit?? Fill up here 55AED, fill up at home £55...

I make that a seventh.....

Stateside, I drove a 5.7L purely because, comparitively speaking, the fuel costs in TX were a joke compared to UK..

Crack on with the beemer.. Not my cuppa tea, more an Audi man, but each to their own...........

Actually Conf, they don't sell BMW's in Supermarkets in the UK. It will be one of the 154 (last time I was there) Official BMW GB dealers. Car supermarkets sell mainly imports.
OVer here, yes AGMC and cost wise, I haven't a clue.....I only get them fixed! But yes, they are a lot cheaper than England.

Sorry Conf, I misread your post, I read it that you were stating they DID sell BMW in Supermarkets in the UK. Still a bit hungover!
