    They sent the reg as soon as I paid the deposit for purposes of insurance... I'll be looking to ensure they've got all the algae off .... never thought of the 'vintage car' approach! Not sure it will get away with the road tax though!

    I'd consider this to have rock hard suspension !
    I cam from a BMW 320d and that was a nice car except for the manual gearbox
    the BLS is a lot firmer ride, more like my old VW Bora TDi

    Billy / S70rmp,
    Yeah, that's my only issue with mine. Quite a bit of road noise and hard suspension. We have just come from a super slick STS though! Everything has a price. Super slick @ 16 mpg or a bit of noise @ 37 mpg. I've got a 68 Fleetwood also,so if I feel the need for a bit of expensive petrol smoothness, I'll jump into that!!

    Bugger.... was hoping it would 'float' a bit more than the reviews I've read about... thought it was quiet or is that just on the motorway... is it time to have second thoughts.... the Fleetwood sounds top. I remember hiring one many years ago on a trip down to Key West.. now that 'floated'!

    Billy,
    Second thoughts not necessary. Mine is fitted with Pirelli p600's. An expensive tyre but they are renowned for being noisy. I'm just going to put up with them until they need replacing. At the end of the day,it's economy for us. I don't think many cars compare to the STS for quietness so we expected some noise. Maybe we have just been plain spoilt. Maybe our BLS isn't noisy at all compared to other comparable cars of the day? It's not painful, just more than we're used to. I'm sure you're gonna love your new baby!

    mine came with Pirelli Zero Rosso's I replaced the front ones when they had 22K on them as winter wascoming, they didn't need to be replaced they had 3mm left but I'm glad I did with all the snow we had !

    You have to get the Extra Load tyres for the BLS so when replacing make sure you get the 94w tyres !

    Re: Has anybody cllected their ex-motorpoint bls yet?

    Just to let you know I collected my BLS wagon 24th Dec from Pentagon.

    I do not know when mine was built, but to re-assure you the car was in perfect condition and I have now driven 5,000 miles without any problems. The bulid quality is very high, no rattles or poor fitting etc.

    Regarding servicing, if you visit www.serviceonestop.co.uk they collect your car and return it for the following fixed prices;

    interim service £151, full service £251.

    Most importantly they advise that the warranty is still valid.

    I have obviously not used them yet, but would be interested to hear from anyone that has.

    Regards

    Hi, had quick scoot around their website, couple things stand out...

    1: Typo's - I'm no english teacher but still, if you're going public as a business you need to look professional.
    2: No actual list of garages who've signed to be a part of it.
    3: The mention of AA et al accredited garages - logo's used aren't as per 'splashed' elsewhere online or in print (B&W not colour? - seems odd)
    4: The company reg appears to be for another company in Middlesex -

    Gsf Motor Works Ltd.
    52 Dudley Road Bedfont
    Feltham
    Middlesex
    TW14 8EH

    Companies House
    Registration Number: 6339124

    And web details -
    Domain name:
    serviceonestop.co.uk

    Registrant:
    mateen qureshi

    Registrant type:
    Non-UK Individual

    Registrant's address:
    unit 5, osiers industrial estate
    enterprise way, osiers road, wandsworth
    london
    SW18 1EJ
    United Kingdom

    As for warranty - it's valid when serviced anywhere now, doesn't have to be from main dealer, one thing EU legislation brought about.

    Anyway regarding the above, as the Dragons would say - I'm out. I'll stick to my trusty local dealer whom I know and trust.

    @PSCBLS,
    Thanks for all that info!! I too looked at their website and came up with the same conclusions. Their web page put me in the mind of one of those dodgy phishing emails you get regarding your bank details. They may be legit but keeping with the dragons theme...... I'm out too!!!!!
