Top Gear’s Bargain of The Week news - Bargain of the week - 2009
It’s Friday, so it must be time for another Top Gear Bargain of the Week, where we trawl the classifieds to bring you the most unbelievable used cars bargains. Consumer advice, or somesuch.
This week’s you-can’t-be-serious deal is a nearly new BMW 118d, being offered by Sytner Sunningdale at the worryingly sensible price of £15,850.
We reckon that’s a saving of over £4,000 off the list price - impressive stuff considering the 1-Series has just 5,000 miles on the clock, and that it’s on an ’09 plate. Our man on the inside reckons it’s an ex-demo car, so it’ll have been kept in good nick by the dealers. Don’t worry, they’ll take those stickers off before you get your hands on it.
The best bits? Classy white paint job - it’s a very ‘in’ colour, darlings - five-door bodyshape, 60mpg-plus economy and ultra-low road tax. Oh, and rear-wheel drive.
Decent to drive, cheap to run and four grand in your pocket - what are you waiting for? These bargains won’t be around for ever, you know…
