having said that roof leaks I would not be happy about if it does it under normal washing, its not like they can't test that in the dealer's with a hose pipe
Seriously? No - how much do we spend on these money pits (because thats what they are lets be honest). You can easily purchase a 10 year old 3 series with none of these faults for under £2k.
As I said previously buying new is just sheer disappointment in my opinion.
