Marty Ritchie and team at Harcourts, let their cars do the talking!

As realtors, Marty Ritchie and his team at Harcourts know the importance of marketing themselves and their successes.  Why not let your car do some of the talking for you?

We sourced and imported two amazing cars for Marty this year – a BMW X5 M50d and an Audi Q7 4.2 TDI.

Latest deal found: 2015 BMW 340i M Sport Wagon

Rare car and loaded with options - forecasted price $105k.

340i wagon i1

340i wagon i2We came across this stunning pre-registered BMW wagon today whilst researching for another client.  The 340i replaces the older 335i and is now the fastest 3-series money can buy, short of the M3.  With 322bhp and 332 lb ft, it sounds like a sports car, with ‘pops and crackles on the overrun’ and in the mid-range ‘it’s simply devastating’.  Full review here from Car Magazine (UK).


This particular model is in Mineral grey metallic with black full leather interior and loaded with options including:

20 inch BMW M Performance Alloy wheels, Adaptive M Sport suspension, Automatic dimming exterior folding mirrors, [...]

New Car Launch: Audi RS6

600 bhp and 3.7 second 0-62mph.

If you think an Aston One-77, Ferrari F50, Lexus LFA, Mercedes SLR, Porsche Carrera GT or a Maserati MC12 are fast, then beware.  The new Audi RS6 (with optional performance pack) – could smoke them at the lights!  That’s according to Top Gear’s latest review.  The ‘Performance pack‘ upgrade yields 600bhp and 3.7-second 0-62mph time.  Pretty impressive.

Now a close rival to the Mercedes S Class

Read Autocar’s review of the new BMW 730Ld here (click on Read more at bottom of this post).

BMW 7 series 1 BMW 7 series 2 bmw 7 series 3

In summary, BMW’s new flagship model shows good potential to knock the Mercedes S Class’ sizeable market share.

The “Executive Drive Pro option”, acts like Mercedes’ Magic Ride by studying the road ahead and slackening the suspension to glide over large bumps but unlike the Mercedes it can be fitted to petrol and diesel models and works at night time and in the rain.

Another feature that made me giggle was the fact that the BMW has a [...]
