LHD BMW M140i Shadow Edition with French registration

Mr Dobbie contacted 1st Car Imports in 2018 requesting a quote for a LHD BMW M140i Shadow Edition with French registration.

As well as contacting 1st Car Imports Mr Dobbie ‘looked online at many specialists’ but ‘chose 1st Car Imports after a couple of emails and the start of fantastic customer service’.

Buying a car online can be a nerve-wracking experience and despite Mr Dobbie ‘being a little nervous at first…the absolute professionalism and quick responses to any questions put me at ease.’

Having paid the deposit directly to an official BMW dealer the car was ordered and arrived at the dealer a month earlier than initially expected.  After paying the balance to the dealer Mr Dobbie decided to collect the car himself and drive it to his property in France.

Once the car was in France 1st Car Imports liaised with their appointed French registration agent to make sure the registration process went as smoothly as possible, allowing Mr Dobbie to spend time putting the finishing touches on his newly renovated French property.

When we asked Mr Dobbie how he found working with 1st Car Imports he said ‘I cannot fault the service, I always had emails replied to, was kept fully up to date with the build of the car and the icing on the cake even arranged the French number plates.  I can’t recommend you highly enough, you went above and beyond supporting us in the purchase of a great value car.  We got an M140i for the same price as a 120d from a French dealer!’


We’re really pleased to have been able to supply Mr Dobbie with the car he wanted at a great price, and we’re glad to hear that the experience of purchasing a car from 1st Car Imports was such a positive one.
