I phoned my current insurer - Sainsbury's - and amazingly the extra premium over my current car (Mercedes C200 auto) is only £43 (so £380 in total - albeit the extra premium is for just 8 months until the expiry of the existing policy. Yet the BMW costs £10k more, has a more powerful engine, is a coupe rather than a saloon and, dare I say it, BMW owners have a reputation for errrrr being more aggressive than us chilled out Mercedes owners. The £43 also includes a £15 'admin fee' for the change of car on the existing policy so the underlying increase is very little.

Anyone else experienced the same problems in using the web to source insurance for an E92 auto? I am wondering if the Sainsbury's call centre picked the right car - only the paper work will tell!

I pick up the new car in 2 weeks - yipee!

I had the same problem last 335D on database.

when my V5 Doc came thru for my 335 it showed 325, plus an address we sent it back and it was returned address sorted still shows 325.

Last week we had a letter from the DLVA saying our V5 is incorrect and can we send it back.

Great system when it works
