Any comments appreciated.
Shop around the BMW dealers in your area, I've previously found considerable price variations and a willingness to haggle.
Depending on where your based a trip to Europe could be worth while... BMW in Europe cost less than the uk mainland... Might be worth looking at, a few years back MB calais was about £70 cheaper for a service than the same service in dover...
