Buying a 1er in Australia is....

F**KEN TOUGH...

The one i was going to buy failed the road worthy... all 4 tyres with below legal tread. Then the owner turns around a refuses to buy new tyres and has the cheek to ask me if i still want it for the same price..

Second guy i call up, all good no worries come get it monday.. Im in Brisbane and had booked flights to sydney to see the car on monday.. He calls me tonight and says. Sorry mate cars sold for more than you were offering. FFFFFFFUUUUUU

Third time lucky? using that ticket to sydney to check ANOTHER one out on monday...

Wish me luck? i just want my 1er I bet my 1addicts.com sticker shows up before i even own one..

FML.

Good luck mate,
Couldn't find anythingin verts except boring non-colours (black white silver grey) so had to wait 5 months for a new one. At least I had no RWC probs. Good luck.
Check out the Australian forum, quite active, and a few for sales on there too.
Cheers,
Alf

Which ones will you be inspecting on Monday? If you need an inspection done you can use Peter at Advan Performance in Auburn (dead smack in the middle of Sydney). He's the only workshop sponsor on here.

I was just going to get the BMW dealer closest to him to do a quick inspection + road worthy.
