I am trying in vain to get the BMW used car website work. Does anybody have any tips? When ever I try to email a link to my mother it just comes up with an 'error 500 page not found' and if I try to register or log in I get the same. Frustrating because I have found a 4GC which I think my mother would like. It even has voodoo lights.

I'm not sure, have you tried finding it on Autotrader?

Just done it and it seems to work OK.  It even finds cars I'd like.

http://usedcars.bmw.co.uk/M/4.4/G...865-3497139.aspx?srcmdc=se_na_re_

If you click on print, it creates a leaflet, worth trying that if the normal link doesn't work on email.

Is it stopping people from ordering anything other than an M Sport with the biggest wheels and smallest engine? That's a feature not a bug

The one I have found is in Luxury spec, with orangey-red seats, so perhaps tha's why it is throwing up an error messgae. The leaflet link works, though. Good spec including sunroof, Harmon Kardon hifi, Professional Nav and voodoo lights.

Moonstone is a nice colour and Merino leather with leather dash makes a big difference to the impression of quality.  I'm not sure about the colour, one that needs to be seen in the flesh.

Really good spec overall, not many boxes unticked.

Leather colour looks much better in these pics

I like it, but understand that many would not.

On the right hand side of the screen there is a series of icons for Facebook, Pinterest etc. The last icon is email, press that and you can email the car in question to whoever.

Moonstone is a great colour - it can look a bit pearly in the right light.

The photos don't do the colour of the leather any favours but I think it is lovely, as is the leather dash. 4WD as well which will make driving in the wet much safer and give a bit more grip in the snow. Really good spec.
