Will they let you do some drifting and donuts in it at our local retail park??

Without wishing to be accused of stereotyping, there's a donut in most BMW's or so it seems.
Problem with BMWs is the serious manufacturing defect they come with...

I've seen BMWs have a tendancy to pull to the right on motorways until it reaches the outermost lane. This is where the bumper magnets really come into their own and stick like glue to the car in front. Meanwhile, the driver must really fight for control of the steering throughout the journey until the very last second, when the car finally relinquishes control - but then the driver over-compensates and swerves back across all the lanes and just narrowly makes it to the motorway exit in time.

Yes just make sure you get 1 with a decent amount of power and more importantly don't tell them!

They did this before Christmas. Had an M4 comp pack. Was a fun 24 hours! £40 worth of fuel.
I drive an i3 Gozer, I’m sure you’ll love it! The UK i3 Facebook group is a good source of info if you’ve not already joined?
Really worth it for the hours of sales pitch they will give you before they hand over the keys ,
i3? i8!

Any hidden charges?
T&C says car has to be registered between 22Jan and 31Mar. Wonder what that means.
They see me rollin' (lol once in 24 hours)
Would they allow the car to be taken overseas? I need to collect a set of drawers from Bruges.

More importantly is Maffey capable of doing drifts and donuts. Now there's a challenge Maffeycourt if ever I've heard one.

Oh man I've requested one, so i'll see what happens. I've got a friend who's a sales person there, so hopefully he'll be able to sort me out!

Just call whatever dealer you want. Much easier.
Do they have any restriction on driver age on vehicles ?
I tried this before, they called and asked a load of questions around my budget, type of car, extras, etc. Then that was it, no call back or test drive. Out of interest, do you have to leave your current vehicle with them?
any chance of the i8?

Big Waste of time!!!!
Spoke to a dealer near me and was told, you have to buy the car for the 24hr test drive thingy. They say they don't have the fleet to facilitate this deal.

Sorry but that's total nonsense. Ive had one drive and another to come. Of course they want to believe your going to buy a car but it's a 24 hour 'test drive'. Return car and say you don't want one.
Clearly that dealer doesnt want to take part.
I3 ugly looking bmw

Agree with TTSS - waste of time - just had the same conversation with Northampton BMW - after a lengthy sales call they can only offer you a 30 minutes test drive and don’t lend cars out for 24 hours! 😡

I've had the same experience. Very disappointed. I think I'll contact a Renault garage instead and have a closer look at a Zoe.

No thats the driver mate hahah iv driven loads bmws they are straight and true

Really disappointed with BMW. So after registering for my interest in the 24 hour test drive on their website, got a call from the local branch within 30 minutes to arrange a test drive for me this week. I recieved a miss call from the head office customer support, I called back the local branch to make sure everything was going as planned and spoke to the chap who originally called me said he wasn't aware it was the 24 hour test drive I was after despite registering my interest. He said he would double check in another branch whether they have a registered vehicle available for the test drive and come back to me by this afternoon. I believe that would just be a swift fob off response to me. This has really put me off, I was genuinely looking at the 3 series for my next car within the new few months.

They shouldn't be allowed to advertise the 24 hour test drive unless at least most of their dealerships offer it.
Booked the M2 over a week ago, had 2 calls and an email to confirm this. Showed up today at Peter Vardy Edinburgh and the guy tells me they don't have a car for me to test drive. But if I want to buy it today he can take all my details..
What a waste of time..
