    I got my order number from Williams Bolton and managed to contact BMW online chat.
    It’s scheduled for September 14th build start… fab… but, they’ve ordered the wrong interior colour!

    First world problems, but hope they will rectify this.

    Grrr…. rant over.

    Jan, from speaking to a number of BMW dealers in the last few days they have all said that deliveries will probably take longer than the quoted dates as their factories are not yet up to speed.

    Thanks Elliot, that’s all good with me.

    Hopefully they’ll be able to sort the interior colour issue out before production.

    Oyster leather, but they’ve put it through as black!

    Jan, my wife has the oyster leather in her X1 and it is so difficult to keep clean.

    No, the M Sport is really well specced as it is.

    Not desperate for any of the other bits and bobs.

    Jan, did you enquire at all about a discount on the AP? I have ordered a 1 series and before the lockdown negotiated £500 off the AP as several BMW dealers where offering £500 off all their models, I am really considering cancelling the 1 for the new 2 grand coupe but very curious if any dealer is willing to offer the reduction in AP?

    Peter Vardy has a BMW franchise in Edinburgh and they are still offering £500 cachback on all Motability orders

    However, the good news is they sorted out the interior colour issue really quickly.

    Anyone know when we will be able to order in Scotland? Due to change and hoping to go for the 2 Series Gran Coupe (M Sport) in Snapper Rocks Blue.

    Thanks for that, I am due to see my local sytner dealer today and testing one for a couple hours, I will ask the question and see if anything comes from it..

    Speak to Ian at Marshalls in Grimsby.

    He is a very helpful guy and I’m sure he will do you a deal.

    Let us know how you get on @bsr

    #115383 Reply


    As of tomorrow Scottish government will announce next phase

    So Sytner where having none of it, regarding any discount to the AP, I was told that due to the back log of cars being built and BMW factories at 70% capacity, they are expecting 16 weeks build, he stated that he had put a order through just before lockdown and that had not been accepted yet let alone a build date or stage.

    I made him aware ofPeter Vardy discount still on their website and also Partridge of Hampshire, however the small print with both showing orders up and until 30th March 2020.

    However I must say what a great car, personally I prefer it to the Merc CLA and the handling is way and above.

    The 1.5 3 cylinder engine actually has some life in it.

    we have a 1 series msport on order from Stratstone BMW whom have given us £500 off the AP however this was before the lockdown and I am hoping they will stick to their word… if not then I will cancel and order the 2grand coupe!!

    Yeah, I gave up on pushing any AP discount.

    Glad you liked it though. I’m still pleased with my choice!

    So real good news for anyone in the market for a BMW, thank you Elliot, Ian at Marshal Grimsby is a very nice bloke, their are no 2 series grand coupe available in the uk currently but he is hounding BMW uk tomorrow to try and locate the first one he can get his hands on, in relation to AP, he was very forthcoming and said he would discount £500 of… so for anyone who can travel to Grimsby… their is a deal to be done … hope this helps.

    Chandlers of Brighton offered my dad £500 discount today if he wanted to order an x1 as he’s in the market for a new car due to a write off, but he’s decided he wants as many toys as possible for the lowest money so has decided to go for the tarraco in excellence lux, absolutely smashing car for the money.
