    My iPhone TomTom app already does this? albeit, I do have to pay extra for it.
    Even so, never been a big fan of BMW. They have gained a rather bad reputation, or at least here in the UK they have.

    I much prefer an Audi, more comfortable and I see less Audi's broken down on the motorway than BMW's.

    On a Side note I own a brand new Vauxhall Corsa SRI, I know it looks a bit "Chavy" but I got it for a very good price and since petrol over here litterally cost's more than an arm AND Leg, it is rather fuel friendly :)

    Yeah its alright, bit of a rough ride on the uk roads due to the massive wheels and lowered ride height but the 1.4 100bhp engine is pretty torque'ie for such an engine, its not fast (0-60 10.3 seconds) by any means but since i get around 56miles per gallon, I'm not complaining :) wish I had got the 1.7 turbo diesel engine though, 0-60 8.3 seconds which is much better and it gets around 60-65 miles per gallon!

    oooww well, it was my first new car, I guess when I go to trade it in for another new one in 3 years time I can get a diesel then :) unless I do have the money to get a fast petrol :) which probably won't happen :)

    Haha, even though I'm in from the UK I still read that as "Chevy" given that Chevrolet and Vauxhall/Opel use the same platforms :)
