So I finally met Tony and Caroline today at Coopers to pick up my wife's M135i - Superb service form start to finish and Tony has some very nice individual colour models in the show room

In total he got us 8.5k off list with discounts and BMW finance incentives

Had a long drive back up north and averaged 35mpg, with getting through the centre of London and heavy traffic on the M6. Used just over half a tank for what is now 250 miles - very happy with that

Thanks to Tony and the team, can't recommenced them high enough

now some pics and let the haters of car finance and PCP join in

Day before up the Sky Garden

Nice car, been in one and they're fantastic machines.

But you really need an imagination transplant when it comes to buying cars

This!

Is Coopers an actual BMW dealership, or non-authorised type set up like Romans International?

Exactly what I want next! I've been looking at the deal that Tony offers and I'm very tempted to take the plunge soon. What optional extras have you gone for, if any? They seem to come quite highly spec'd from factory now.

How much did your options add on? Pretty much the exact spec I want!

I can appreciate this as a nice car, but it just looks so average these days. I'm sure we all pass numerous cars like this every day on the way to work. There are also numerous cars of this spec on every other driveway in most modern housing estates.
Cars like this used to be relatively rare and special, but now they're the norm unfortunately.
I'm not knocking you, it's a nice car, but that's just my opinion.

All i would add is... HK system, 8 speed box and widescreen Nav are a must.

They are awesome cars.

As its in PCP I didn't want to load it up and auto box was around 60 extra a month

Love the manual box but would have auto if o had the choice

Hk system doesn't have eq like the 3 series so isn't worth it having listened to both.

Consequence of pcp being readily available to pretty much anyone these days.

Had some 18 year old call my car shit because I called him a prick for blocking to Road to wait for his mate. Had to laugh, it was one of those tiny engined a1 things. Yeah mate, proper badass motor you have there. Come back to me when you actually know how to remove a wheel bolt.

Cheers. I do a lot of work for a local BMW/MINI dealership but not sure they are really offering me the best deals.

Tony this, Tony that

I kinda agree with above, it's a lovely car, and interior is amazing. Tonnes better than mine, not sharing otherwise.

However, it will never be appreciated for what it is sadly. Will blend right in.

Which is fair enough.

Not that I've spent a huge amount of time listening to the HK in the 135i but it's exceptional in my e92 M3.

Yeah must agree these kind of cars just all blend into one another these days... nothing special really but I'm sure it's a fantastic drive, and much more grown up than anything I've owned! If that's what you're after plus it's marginally better looking than it's predecessor; not that that's saying a lot!
