I've been wanting to get this off my chest for some time now.
I was a member on mini2 for some time, but maybe it's the disappointment i have every day driving my MCS
that i've completely forgotten my log in details. anyway...
I owned the first BMW MCS
and loved every second of it. I traded it in on March 1st 2007 for the R56. I've felt very disappointed since that day.
I've had numerous problems with the timing belt (seems to be a common problem) but the performance of the car is just awful. In 3 and a half years Ive only done 14,000 miles and the car is like a tortoise in led boots,
I struggle to keep up with ford fiesta's! when the car is turned on first thing it just wants to kangaroo jump for the first 20 minutes until it's warmed up, and when its floored I'm always fearful that the car is gonna fall to pieces.
Quite frankly, i cant stand this car.
After number crunching i've discovered that for financial reasons it would be near impossible to sell the car to get a golf gti, the car i've wanted for so long. i'm stuck with this thing now, driving used to be fun in my first MCS
, now it's just gut wrenching and painful.
I just wanted to get this off my chest people
thank you all.
