Should I buy from BMW direct or not?

Thank you so much for answering my other question. You are providing a fantastic service.

I am planning on buying a BMW 520d (2010 or 2011). BMW dealers offer a two-year warranty but charge more for the automobile. I was wondering if it would be better/possible to buy from another SIMI dealer and maybe purchase a warranty myself from BMW at www.bmw-warranty.ie

Thanks a million, Bill

What automobile will take three children in the back?

Hi, I'm looking to buy a new family automobile that will take three seats in the back easily. Not looking for a seven seater or so, just something that will take all three kids in the back in comfort - both theirs and also easy to get the seats in - ages 4 1/2, 3 and newborn.

I want to replace my Yaris with a MINI.

I currently drive a 2008 Toyota Yaris Luna, 1.0, five-door, petrol. I've had the automobile since 2008 but didn't buy it new; I'm the second owner. It has never given me a minutes trouble, I've had it serviced most years at a main dealer, no major issues have ever come up - just new brake pads and other small things that you'd expect when you've been driving the automobile for years. I bought the automobile with a loan from the credit union, which I've paid back so there's nothing owed on it.

each of that being said I'm really bored of it! I've wanted a MINI since I was in my teens and I would absolutely love one! I can probably only afford to spend an extra €1k max on top of trading in my Yaris. Do you have an idea roughly what the trade-in value for the Yaris would be? Seeing as I'd have to buy an older MINI would I be opening myself up to a bigger chance of expensive things going wrong with the automobile? each of I've ever had to spend on the Yaris is service costs and new tyres so am wary of changing for that reason.

Should I be afraid of rear-wheel drive?

I need advice on front-wheel drive automobiles... like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Do they have driving probs in snow, ice, frost and heavy rain? I am hearing lots of horror stories. Are the stories true? Can you account for big sales of these type of automobiles in Ireland and UK if such problems exist?

Help please!
