Tend to agree...........cars are a waste of money

Perhaps consider leasing one ............

Get a bicycle and blow the lot there.

Mind you,my opinion of cyclists is about the same as BMW drivers.😀

Don't buy a BMW as everyone will think you are a cnut.

Go for the Beemmer. A proper cnut don't care what the others think. It is a much better car than the Mazda.

Also try an Audi if they are serviced in your area. Had a couple from Carnarvon in the taxi the other week, they had to drive the 1500km to Perth to get the airbag changed as part of the on-going fiasco. Nearest authorised service centre to do the job.

Didn't think any cars were made in Oz any more. Is this one of the last?

Yeah, says that in the advert.

Shame cause Ford and Holden finally had a decent product at the end.

Get an M3/M5 Ivan, you won't regret it. Ya don't even have to buy new just carefully, anything 1-2 years old and dealer maintained will be the dogs bollox.

Why not take a look at the Lexus Ivan? 

My boss has a 450H hybrid and I took it to be serviced for him. Very quiet and easy to drive. Plus it's a bit different to the thousands of BMWs on the road .

Around 89,000 Aus dollars .

89k would be 2nd hand... new they are over 100k.... happy to be corrected on that though.

Also new car will need to add an extra 25k (ish) for taxes and on road costs.

I just read an article this evening quoting $88, 000 plus a few more for a base model in Australia. Apparently you can add extras for additional costs which could well push the price to what you are saying . 

As for the on the road cost , ive absolutley no idea as I live in the UK. Which, im rather glad of if it costs $ 25,000 just to put a nice car on the road in Oz ! 

Be interested to know what those costs would be . 

Just realised $25,000 aus is over £13,000 !!! 

Ivan .....get a bicycle !
