Interesting that the M cars don't though. I was loaned a Z4M roadster when someone drove into mine - it was awesome. No run-flats, no electronic steering - shed loads of fun 8)Superman said:All the new BMWs come with the run-flat tyres
Might be worth trawling or posting on Piston Heads - they have a BMW section of the forum and there are bound to be people who drive the models you're interested in. I don't find the ride too harsh in mine (Z4 Coupe 3.0si) - but then comfort wasn't high on my agendaSuperman said:So, I've been thinking for this since I started this thread.
At the minute, I've still not seen the car list so haven't chosen what I want.
I'm still on a BMW, having done the sums my previous car Astra 2.0Cdti (150) Sxi [XP] gives me an idea on tax costings. I've found out that I can get the following two at the same tax level (~Â£175)...
123d M Sport Coupe - 204bph - 54mpg
320d SE Highline Coupe - 175bph - 58.9mpg
It all depends on the price out of the allowance, I'm 99% sure that both will be within my allowance (given a Audi S5 is as a colleague has one!), so it just depends how much of that I wish to spend. At least the cheaper car (123d) will give me some money back for the slight increase in petrol.
Does anyone have any of their friends or family with either of these? If so, what do they think?
As we don't plan to have any little ones for a while, this might be my last "fun" car before I need to factor in the family car!!
