Dear Friends,

         My story is long. Anyway I am trying to tell it short...?. I am actually a Peugeot ONLY fan previously. We have owned 203, 504 - Both My Grandpas and 306, 307 - Both My Dad had and 206, 406, 407, previously owned by me and now having a Peugeot 308 triptronic. To have a change, I recently bought a Toyota Caldina Diesel. It was a nightmare. I ended up mostly in garage...???. From suspensions to gearbox, I have attended almost everything. But still car is not in pristine condition which usually I expect. I am fed up with that. So I am planning to sell that and going to buy BMW X1 petrol. I am interested in 2011 and 2012 models. How much are these models going? Other than Agents and Milroy do we have any good garages where I can do the running repairs professionally and maintain the car in pristine condition? Friends, please help.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. I like station wagon kind of vehicle. So X1 has the look of SW.

Since you're a hardcore Peugeot fan, why don't you try a 3008 around  2012.

@tilvin ever considered a Subaru?

 

The Forester has station wagon functionality with AWD SUV capability and the turbocharged ones have sports car performance ?

 

Very reliable (like most Japanese cars usually are) but charming to drive like a European car, with character

Have not seen a single petrol X1 (2012-2013) majority are much older Diesel and were brought on permits.

 

Correct. I saw one ad about a Petrol one. But now it is in the hands of a car broker...?. He is telling double the car's price....:medium-smiley-005:

try Auto Bavaria for servicing. I did some financing to the guy who was a former director at the Agent and bought all original equipment. A Friend of mine did some work on his 318i there and had no complaints
