As another workshop manager said to me yesterday (my 2007 159 in there yet again) "If only the germans built them" To be fair as an independent dealer and contributing motoring journalist the new batch of 2010 cars onwards from all manufacturers are going to step up a notch, the eagerly awaited 169 (and i have only seen press shot's) looks to be in another class to the 159 but only time will tell!
All this does'nt help you though and anyone with a four year old car and low mileage would be dissapointed, I used to love my job but it seems nowadays all it comes to down to is "damage limitation" it's not that you sell somebody a bad car, it's just the fact that alot of modern cars are actually built so badly with very little quality in the parts, and when the warranty runs out you are really in trouble, hence why the Main Agents rarely stock anything over Three years old on their forecourts.
It seems that 3 years old now is, well....OLD
