England New family member - wife's new "baby"

My wife took delivery of a laser blue coupe with silver roof and the obligatory contrasting stripes...

Nice spec too, punched leather, visual boost, some black and silver alloys. Bit of a shame it's an auto, but...

The downside to new ownership and coming from a VWScirocco is the noise, hard ride, build quality and a huge step backwards from a DSG to BMW auto box.

Car going back to the dealership next week for three days, auto box doesn't know if to be in sports or just drive, air conditioning makes a god awful racket every now and again, a very annoying rattle behind the drivernear the seat belt mount very noisy engine and a boot that you have to slam to shut...

So much for a PDI

Fingers crossed we snag all the gremlins in one go.

a bit disappointing tbh, I have a notion for one ( or an MX5 ) but it looks like they haven't sorted out the problems yet !!

would be interested if you get things sorted to your satisfaction.
