    just checked, gt86 is 6,0000 plus 800£ excess for me, won't be any lower, as i live in central london, only had license 3 months etc

    hence, not just a cost cap, but BHP cap

    You'd have to be completely ****ing mad to spend £25k on a new car, you'd be looking at something very average for that money. Why even consider getting a new 316 when a used 335 could be had for the same money?

    1. it's new, so that's worth a premium
    2. even if I wasn't concerned about used, I don't need 300BHP car in central london
    3. it would have 3-5 year old tech, no latest idrive etc
    4. the insurance would be silly, or perhaps even uninsurable considering i've only had a license for 3 months

    1. Totally disagree. How so?
    2. Fair enough, different priorities.
    3. Do you really care about that? There isn't a huge difference.
    4. It would be very expensive for you. It wouldn't be cheap on a 316 either.

    Seriously, reconsider a 316, the engine is pitiful.

    1. the fact that no-one [perhaps besides the people loading off a transporter] have used it?

    how can you say you will have that same feeling being the second owner [or more] vs the first

    2. glad we agree

    3. well yes, I want new, which entails everything is new, that's of higher importance than how fast it is

    4. I've ordered it/it's been made [check my picture just above]

    I had considered an A class, but the interior build quality wasn't as refined

    so my main priority was how nice the interior was, and having been to audi and benz, decided on this

    i don't get why people in this thread place speed higher, considering you can't exactly use it whilst driving around london

    and how often will you use launch control etc

    i go trackdays every few months, can actually go fast there, in someone else's porsche/tyres
