That was an LK specific price.

I'll market it to him as a Special Edition model complete with extra power and warning lights, cylinder shut down system (engine cut out) to save fuel etc.
He'll lap it up!

This is a private message isn't it?

Ohhhhhh shiiiiiii

£15k tops (is what you will have paid for it)

Probably sell at about £18k

I'll give you £14k - £15k for it.

LK. You said yesterday you would never have another BMW. Furthermore, you have driven a 135i and didn't rate it?!!
So what's the story?

Never say never at the right price.

M135i is a different beast to the M235i I am told ..

Oh, but is it an Auto ???

They won't be FUNDAMENTALLY different LK!

How different can they be? Same engine and everything. I would have thought all mechanicals would be the same. Maybe slightly tweaks to account for extra/different weight of the coupe body?

Yep, it's the auto.

I suspect under the skin they're the same car.

Watch any Chris Harris video ... they are different cars.

Anyway - as mentioned, I'd buy it at the right price ...... no-one said I'd be keeping it long cyclops

Cool?! Hmm, i dont know about that :p

We do occasionally get something interesting in, i suppose.

However...they've tightened stuff up a lot. There was a time i (or other members of staff) could grab a set of keys and trade plates (if required) and take a car out.

That is no longer the case.

Same with cheap trade ins. At one stage i could catch the old boss on a good day and he'd let me have a car at trade price. ie the Civic and Piasso...and the Astra i got for my stepdad

The new guy is ...not the same. I've yet to see how the land lies with him on this side of things.
(he's also not my boss anyway, whereas the previous boss was my bosses boss. This guy isn't my bosses boss or my boss, but he is the boss of the dealerships)

And yes, it's a strange move. We are all agreed that the BMW will be the better (and faster!) car.

The WRX will be the more 'hardcore' though, certainly. (see my review for details Smile )

Not enough demand? Excessive costs?

The current one stopped mainly because they couldn't get the 2.5 engine to comply with upcoming Euro 6 regs.

Also....it was hardly fresh as a daisy.

There is no demand because they took a perfectly good concept, and threw it out, and started making some bland old hatchback.

Surely they should start making a few decent sized coupe's - market needs some decent coupes,  Nissan GTR rival, or a larger version of the BRZ - would go down better than a gold digger in a Bentley.

Well, whatever they did, mitsubishi did the same. The 90's and 00's rivalry between the Impretzels and the Evopooshions fizzled out!

The WRX became a saloon again and thats how its been for some years now but it was just...too unknown.

When you can get a Golf or a Focus that can offer similar or more performance...in a more all-round package...well there you go.

Hot hatchbacks became uber-hatches and the lines became blurred. It just make the WRX and Evos look old fashoned and like....out of time.

The hardcore fans stayed loyal....but there aren't enough of them to keep the model afloat.

The BRZ is great. I drove the WRX and BRZ on the same day as can be seen in reviews section. Both very different cars....but thrilling but in different ways.

And i still haven't had a go in the 235i.

*ears prick up*

Whats this i hear....there's £500 p/x coming in this afternoon....what will it be?!?! I never get tired of old shite.

I guess that's it. A Focus ST/RS offers everything an EVO/STI does but without the ludicrous servicing and running costs. Cars like the M3/RS4 still survive because they keep upping the power to stay ahead and they also have a strong brand image. Subaru ans Mitsubishi don't.

I think you are right Teeps!

*grimaces*

Smile

I can advise that the trade in value of the 235i was £16k.
