The choice: Trade in my current X1 23d Xline SE for one of the following: Audi Q3, Porsche Macan (when it becomes available), Range Rover Evogue, Mercedes SLK, Alfa Romeo C4 or a new X1 M Sport.
The problem: Current car is a very low mileage, high specification X1 23d Xline SE that is still technically ahead of the competition. Cost of change and heavy depreciation.
The solution: Dick Lovett Bristol's (BMW, Porsche, Ferrari main dealer) body shop and three days (see below).
Problems encountered: some delays due to a few parts being on back order, several different shades of Space Grey, and different shape fog lights! The results are brilliant
Now about that 3.0d engine and eight speed box........
