BMW I3

BMW I3 in for service inspection, This car does have a small petrol engine which was up do date, the rest of the usual service type checks still apply, It still has brakes and tyres, etc etc. Fun little car, the owner insisted i take it for a drive… Loved it.



Courtesy cars updated

For 5 years we had 3 E46 BMW’s running around town. The name change was a great opportunity for trade up to newer, with fewer kms.

So 2 of the BMW’s have been sold and gone to new homes. TOY001 I just couldn’t let go….Maybe its time??

So we have added a MK5 Golf GT,

And new to us, not yet signed up is a 2010 MK6 Golf wagon.

Also yet to be decided on is the A4 Audi in the background. This might be the new TOY001 if i can finally part with my old BMW
