From 4.4 to 2.0, Pulled the trigger,, Hoorah!

Post by FruitLoopz » Fri Mar 01, 2019 12:49 am

Hello all and nice to be on what seems to be a nice and positive forum.

After weeks of research and deliberation I put the order in for a P300 Coris Grey, was looking at used ones but got a descent deal and decided to go new and get all the features i wanted.
Got a F10 M5 at the moment which I am selling, very different I know. Went for a couple of test drives and was quite happy and I never get to use the power of the M5 99% of the time anyway in London.
Got a 18 week estimated delivery, so plenty of time to have a V8 detox while I drive in some small run-arounds.

Hello and welcome, I can tell you now, those 18 weeks won’t come quick enough 😂,
One day I’ll have to scratch that V8 itch, got to love a V8 burble 👍🏻
What bells and whistles did you end up going for ? Got a few on mine but the most used/best is the heated steering wheel 😃
300D HSE Dynamic, silicon silver, HUD, heated steering wheel, plus a few more extras :D

Thanks and yea that burble is nice! Although quite mild on the F10 M5,
I went for Driver assist pack, apple car play, electric pano roof, air suspension and solar windscreen.
Was thinking about the steering wheel but I've never experienced one before so left that one.

Without it that metal insert in the steering wheel gets rather cold in the winter months. I had one on my D5 but an oversight on my part means I don’t have it on this car and I’ve missed it. For £190 it’s worth it and a bargain compared to some options.

C63S, great beast of a car, love the sound.

Keen to hear of the discounts dealers are giving to move orders? Seen the JLR contribution to the D275 (3k) but what are people getting? Car wow dealer is offering me 6.4% off but not sure if that’s good or bad??

I got a good deal from CarWow too (Rockar), I had spoken with some local dealers prior to CarWow and when I told them about the discount and lower APR rates they came back with nothing. Other dealerships weren't willing to lower the APR at all.
