Thought I might say hello, if for no other reason than to remove the reminder box! I had a 156SW 1.8TS for three years, which a BMW driver chose to crash into and write off 4 or 5 weeks ago. I've since replaced it with one of the many ex-demo '06 159 Lusso 2.4JTDm SW, in Titanium Grey with the Roof bars that seem to be on the market at the moment. One or two niggles, but I expected that as the price was pretty low. Should all be covered by Warranty though.
I love the torque and the extra space, but I'm still getting used to having a diesel. I'm sure once all the niggles are resolved I'll be delighted with the car for years to come.
