It looks like Sylvania BMW's reputation has gone down. Sorry to hear about the debacles with the aforementioned dealer. At least everything is now sorted.

I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but ending up with a Captiva isn't really the same type of car as BMW X5/5er? Did you not want something like an ML/Q7/RRS or even a Land Cruiser?

Captiva/ X5.. in the same bracket to me if you just take out brand name!

The Captiva @ $38k was the best packaged out of all of them value for money. I have EVERYTHING, elec heated seats, sunroof, parking camera, parking sensors front and back, diesel turbo motor, leather lounges (all the way to the 3rd row!), side steps and more that i cant think of right now!

I drove them all.. wasn't a $$ issue, its what drove the best and how it was packaged! Holden had their Staff Discount sale on, and after driving them all i just couldn't say no.

Yeah but what about quality? I mean you wont get the same build standard or dealer backup from a non premium brand..... Oh wait

My BMW experience was a disaster as well. Wife wants a 135 to replace her JCW but Ive told her to find something else. BMWs are mutton dressed as lamb.

I just bought my 135i, is Rushcutters bay BMW sydney the best to service the car.
I have just ordered some V710 to be told that it may void the warranty and safety of the car. Should I be concerned?
