The BMW was a complete accident. Whilst browsing the Autotrader site one evening I happened on it and quote liked the look of it so made the call. It turned out the seller was trading it in the following morning but if I could get down to see it near Gatwick that evening we could do a deal! We managed to get down and late that night the deal was done.nThe BMW took us to the south of France and did pretty up until it was attacked by a Clio. Thankfully the damage wasn't too bad and after the insurance company paid £2500 to get it repaired it was back on the road.nSadly it proved to be more then a little unreliable, ending up on the back of an AA truck twice and when the gearbox started to become notchy it was time to go.
