Hello from Greece

Post by Gre » Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:12 am

After owning a fully loaded BMW X1 for 2 years I was kind of satisfied with what I had apart from the crashy ride on Greek roads. I have seen some pictures for the xc40 and decided to go and have a test drive for the fun of it..... and it got stuck in my head and wanted to own one. After checking around the dealerships was lucky to find a cancelled preordered car fully loaded with a crazy price tag of 75k euros due to high taxes in greece. However I was super lucky to find a first edition D4 that had only 7000 km with a price tag of 40% less. And after 4 days deal was done. This car is on a different league. So comfortable even with the 20 inch tires. My only objection would be the gearbox, it’s a bit sluggish. I will go for the polestar upgrade maybe this would help a bit.

Unfortunately with the new additional taxes it is insane. Would not have paid 75k for the xc40. Lucky enough paid 46k for the FE demo.
