my car was in shrewsbury today for its first MOT and its end of warranty check and it was given a clean bill of health and issued an MOT for the next twelve months, so the car is nearly three years old and covered 20266 miles and i still love driving and owning it
when i arrived in Shrewsbury the car was looking far from its best and after the episode the other day where i was stuck in a field and all the salt from a week of use it was looking very sorry for itself, i dropped the car into Scott at perfect polish for a maintenance wash to get the car looking its best for its appointment with the MOT tester

Have been looking about for something to replace my wife's 2013 F20 116i ES. Started looking at X1's but pre registered petrol versions are almost non existent and certainly no good deals so in the end started looking at pre registered new 1 series. My brief compared to the existing 116i was sportier, faster, sat nav, parking sensors and not diesel, silver or white in colour.. After a few visits to see a couple of local dealers and their stock I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the offerings from local Cooper and Stratstone dealerships. Having previously bought cars from both in the past I was also keen to try another dealership after less than impressive sales experiences..
