Two questions before talking to dealer tomorrow and making decision:

(1) Should I get BMW to tint windows or can anyone recommend any other company in South-East, preferably in London. Prices roughly would be appreciated, and quality of finish.

(2) Anyone had any luck with insurance for the M5 ? Again any recommendations ?

Thanks

Autoshades in South London (Sutton) are very good, and professional. Not too expensive either. Probably worth a call.

Insurance for M5

Thanks for the recommendation.

In the epic quest to get insurance.. I tried 10 different firms today. Most are quoting over £2500. I am 34 yrs with 6 year NCB, but being in London really pushes up premium. Apparently most companies won't assign M5 final insurnace grouping until mid-April, so some quotes may come in lower after that time. No doubt it will be group 20.

However, BMW insurance quoted me £1750 including NCB protected with my wife also on policy. So I will be going with them for now. Looking at policy it appears very comprehensive and obviously ideally tailored to a BMW.

Is that £1750/year?

yes, annual premium. Monthly payment rate APR 25.5% bit steep, better to pay in one go.
Try Privelege (if you haven't already)...my TVR costs less than £1,000 per year and that's obviously group 20, soft top, low quality security etc., and I leave it on the street overnight in London ;)

Wow, thanks reduced premium to £1267. Earlier on their website they said that price of the car was too much. Spoke to the operator and I have an existing policy due to start later this month and they just amended it. Insurance companies are truly weird...Directline quoted me £2200...but the strange thing is that both companies are owned by Royal Bank of Scotland group. Ho hum...I'm not complaining.

Thanks again virage1
