I just took delivery of the car about 2 weeks ago and have not done anything funny with it. Hope the problem is nothing major but really didn't expect a new car to break down in just 2 weeks.
This does not sound good - I was thinking it may have been a one off, as my brothers just told me his next door neighbours F20 did the same thing, but to cut a long story short its going to take a few weeks to fix as the parts are on back order?? Will quiz her (the neighbour) when I next visit.
Hers is a 118d - the same as the one i've got on order :-(
Will keep you updated the progress of hers as i'm sure my brother will keep me updated!
