Gave them a phone looks to be still on waiting on application coming through.

Anybody drove 128/135 before?
I was going to ask the same question .

I'm 6 weeks and 1500 miles in on my 135.

Tip

On collection I would switch off the Steering wheel intervention in the Lane departure menu ( Round green button between the air vents).

It caught me out when I got onto the motorway on the way home, it's like tramlining but worse.

Ride quality is compromised by BMWs overinflated ECO tyre settings . ( 2 settings for the rear tyres )

Split floor in the boot is clever.

Hey... but I love it .

Quality interior is streets ahead of the competition

Enjoy

Was tempted with 135 coming from Cupra. Imagine inside will feel more premium

Can I ask the deal you got as this is the spec I was thinking about?

Spec above, plus rear armrest is costing me c. £245 per month on a 6+36 basis. I believe the rear armrest adds about a fiver on per month, very roughly.

Includes the service pack as well.
135 or 128?

Must be a 128 compared to other quotes.

And a very low mileage compared to the quotes I’ve had!

I'm thinking of being (semi) sensible and going for 128 with pro pk 6 x 36 8k @ £268.92

Apologies, it is indeed a 128ti. Misread what the other poster put up.

Just in case it’s useful for anyone:

Metallic, privacy glass and rear armrest is costing me c. £245 per month on a 6+36 basis, 5k miles. I believe the rear armrest adds about a fiver on per month, very roughly. Includes the service pack as well.

Not many going with the park assist option then? I know it’s not a big car but been a long time since I’ve had a car without rear parking sensors...

From AC quotes a low mileage seems to be the way to go. There is no benefit that I can see in going for a higher one - works out just the same as paying the excess from a lower basic monthly. As someone about to return a Golf R that has done a fraction of miles in the last 12 months I expected to, and paid for, I won’t be making that mistake again...

I thought parking sensors came as standard?

I'm sure I read that somewhere as well and park assist gives you all the fancier parking aids? Now frantically trying to find confirmation of that somewhere!

ETA: BMW live chat confirmed it comes with parking sensors as standard. Though, to what extent i.e .if any kind of visual aid, I don't know. Beeps do me fine though. .

Yes sure. I went from M135i to 128ti then back to M135i. Difficult decision. It was either highly specced 128ti or basic M135i due to budget.

Thanks DizzyN - that’s a relief!

Will probably just go for a basic M135 in that case, with metallic. I was tempted by H-K but not bothered about 19s or sun protection glass which come with it in the Pro pack.

I submitted the finance application on Thursday last week. Got accepted on Friday. Hire Agreement came through today.
Impressed with the communication and quick replies so far.
Really surprised! Would you mind sharing your point of contact with me? Every time I call up I get fobbed off with "give it another 48 hours" - and the lady who I sent my application form off through doesn't return until tomorrow. David was helpful, but even he hasn't replied to the emails I sent today.

Pretty frustrating when I sent everything off on Wednesday and am still yet to hear back!
David Harrison to begin with then on to Joanna Wilson.
