while i had a 1 series years ago this is my first "real" BMW - 520d 2012. Its spotless - low milage in black with oyster leather. I love it and intend to have it a couple of years and upgrade... the reason for me to go with this is to keep it looked after with Joe Duffy which i hope will garner a little extra on trade in for a 2017/18 model in a couple of years time. Do i need a showroom shine every day? Nope. However a clean well looked after motor which i love to drive.. certainly

Check out the latest offer for BMW first members, very tempting !

As part of your BMW FIRST Subscription, you now have exclusive access to the BMW FIRST Experience Fleet which has just been launched in Ireland.

Heading away for the weekend? Take the 410bhp BMW M2 Competition for a spin. Going off the beaten track, the BMW X3 M40i is ready and waiting. Looking for a mix of style and power? Enjoy the powerful and stylish BMW 440i.

Make your next BMW experience even more memorable with the BMW FIRST Experience fleet.

Book quickly, someone will bin the m2 comp fairly quickly, they will catch you out in the wet even with the traction on if your not used to it. It seems a very good deal on the car rentals.

€1,500 security deposit on the cars and minimum 25 years old. Won't happen that quick.

M2 Competition will be constantly sold out, so I'll probably keep my eyes peeled for the X3 M40i.

Is there any three month discounts available at the moment. The 1st month free is available but 3 would be better than 1!
Thanks.

So seems the m2 comp is being removed from the rental fleet for some reason?

I was on to them last week and was told BMW Ireland has just pulled the plug on the scheme due to low uptake. The 440i and X3 M40i apparently have already gone back to be sold on and the M2 which booked out until the end of May, will go back after that.

I'd imagine the scheme would have been more popular if they offered them during the summer months when the weather is better, plus you have to collect and drop back the cars in Dublin only. So like me living on the other side of the country, it's more awkward and involves a bit more planning/time off.
