                       BERIC LYNTON
                       Welcome to the latest edition of the Bruce Lynton BMW newsletter. With spring now upon us
                       we can look forward to the beautiful weather ahead just perfect for the family road trips or
                       weekend getaways.

                       It is with delight I start by announcing Bruce Lynton this year proudly accepted the BMW Dealer Trophy
                       Award for 2007. This award recognizes dealers who achieve the highest standards through all areas of the
                       business. However, it is without you our loyal customers that receiving this award would not be possible
                       and I would like to personally thank you for your continued support and custom.

                       With much anticipation, the new BMW X6 has now arrived in our showroom. This stunning vehicle is the
                       world’s first Sports Activity Coupe and will undoubtedly set a bench mark in prestige motoring. Also adding
                       to the new product launches for 2008, the BMW 1 series range continues to increase in popularity offering
                       BMW buyers the option of a sports hatch, coupe or convertible model. And finally the arrival of the new
                       BMW M3 convertible proves the ultimate combination of racing car performance and open top driving – a
                       true embodiment of the Ultimate Driving Machine.

                       As we continue an important part of our business – our community support was again strengthened in June
                       following our annual charity ball with close to $190,000 raised for the Cancer Council Queensland, Guide
                       Dogs Queensland and Surf Life Saving Queensland. A special thanks to all our sponsors and those who
                       attended to make this event a possibility. And with 2009 just around the corner, I’m pleased to announce
                       we have just confirmed Saturday April 4th as the date for next year’s Charity Ball. This is an event not to be
                       missed and promises to only be bigger and better.

                       For those who may be wondering - to clarify our company philosophy, if it’s owned and operated by Bruce
                       Lynton Pty Ltd it will carry the full name of Bruce Lynton in the trading name.

                       On a final note, I would like to reintroduce you to Carl Smith and Ty Sheers who have joined our award
                       winning dealership team. Carl and Ty rejoin our New Car Sales team with a wealth of BMW industry
                       experience and knowledge behind them. Both are BMW Dixi Club Award recipients which recognises
                       and rewards top achieving Sales Consultants for their performance and commitment to the brand. Most
                       importantly Carl and Ty are dedicated to providing you with the complete Bruce Lynton experience.

                       I look forward to welcoming you to the dealership soon, and trust you will continue to enjoy many hours of
                       sheer driving pleasure.

          The BMW Roundel
          One of the most recognizable logos in the world, the blue-and-white BMW insignia is known as the roundel. It’s
          the only automotive emblem to depict motion, as it portrays the movement of an airplane propeller against a clear
          blue Bavarian sky.

          This hearkens back to our early days as a manufacturer of airplane engines that set many altitude records in the
          early 1900s. Since then BMW, Bayerische Motoren Werke, has become synonymous with the finest in engineering
          achievement the world over.

             BRUCE LYNTON WINNER OF THE 2007
             BMW DEALER TROPHY
             In February 2008 Bruce Lynton was awarded the BMW Dealer Trophy for achieving exceptional
             standards of performance from the experienced team of sales consultants throughout 2007.

             This award was first introduced in 1995 to recognise those dealers who achieve the highest standards
             of performance and professionalism in key areas of their business. Since its inception, the BMW Trophy
             program has been a major success in promoting the talents and skills of individual dealers who have
             enjoyed the formal recognition of their efforts at the annual award presentation dinner.

             Bruce Lynton has earned this accolade three times since its inception.

                                                                                                  Bruce Lynton BMW     3

In what is possibly the most comprehensive and realistic new car rating system conceived in Australia, BMW has dominated the field in Wheels
magazine’s annual Gold Star Cars awards.

Embracing aspects including purchase price, retained value, insurance costs, fuel costs, warranty details, servicing costs, safety and, finally, the driving
experience, the Gold Star Cars awards weed out the vehicles that don’t measure up.

The aim of the Gold Star Cars awards, according to Wheels, is to determine the best financial propositions in each of the 18 categories. BMW’s prominence in
the 2008 awards, on the back of an impressive performance in 2007 where five BMWs scored top ratings, is little short of astounding. No less than eight BMWs
were judged as best in their respective classes against solid competition from other car manufacturers.

    “No” closes doors – but when used to break convention, opens many more. As an independent company, BMW can afford to say No to
    a lot of things. No we will not compromise ideas. No we will not do it the way everyone else does it.

    BMW’s ability to say No is clearly demonstrated by constant reinvention and innovation. Today that philosophy has enabled us to create the
    new BMW X6. Combining the dynamics of a coupé with the versatility of a Sports Activity Vehicle, the new BMW X6 is the world’s first Sports
    Activity Coupé.

    After making its debut in the Bruce Lynton showroom during August this year, it is now available in X6 xDrive35i petrol form, and as the turbo-
    diesel X6 xDrive35d. Both inline six-cylinder engines in the new X6 represent the latest BMW engine technology, the xDrive35i featuring the
    same award-winning 225 kW Twin Turbo petrol powerplant seen in the 335i models, and the new 135i Coupé and Convertible models.
    The X6 xDrive35d is equipped with BMW’s Variable Twin Turbo inline six-cylinder diesel that produces an astounding 210 kW. Central to the
    vast range of dynamic capabilities the new BMW X6 also boasts BMW’s intelligent xDrive all-wheel drive technology.

    The BMW X6 is also the first vehicle in the world to offer Dynamic Performance Control, which varies the torque split at each side of the rear
    axle to help provide new levels of directional stability in any driving situation, on or off road. The result is a vehicle that delivers an even greater
    degree of dynamic control and enjoyment than ever before.

    Coming soon is the new BMW xDrive50i, expected towards the end of 2008, and more details will soon be released.
    Pricing for the new BMW X6 starts from $124,652 on road Queensland. To register for a test drive contact our sales team on 5557 7999.

Blue sky above, racetrack beneath. The BMW M3 Convertible : racing car technology meets open-top driving.

Taking your breath away but not your speed, the M double-clutch transmission (DCT) with Drivelogic transfers engine power to the road without the slightest
disruption to tractive force. With two transmission structures the system is able to switch simply between the two, thus providing constant power to the
rear wheels. Gears can be changed without the transmission of power being interrupted using either the paddles, shift lever or automatic mode for even
more dynamic comfort. 0 to 100 km/h takes just 5.1 seconds, two tenths of a second faster than the manual transmission. The BMW M3 Convertible is now
available from Bruce Lynton.

The BMW 1 Series range now brings you a model to suit every personality, making it as unique as the person driving it.

With the release of the new Coupé and Convertible in May, the BMW 1 Series now features a vehicle to suit the desires of every compact vehicle enthusiast. Whether
it be the speed and power of a Coupé, the style and sophistication of a Convertible, or the practicality and class of a Sports Hatch; all are now available from Bruce

If the sound of a roaring engine sets your heart racing, the BMW 1 Series Coupé will take your breath away. The135i Sport model features the world’s best engine, as
acclaimed at the 2007 ‘International Engine of the Year Awards’. The powerful twin turbo 225kW engine uses latest generation high precision direct petrol injection to
generate its power peak, while at the same time returning modest fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The rapid fire acceleration means the BMW 135i Coupé
will sling-shot to 100km/h from standstill in just 5.3seconds.

Convertible: Style and Sophistication
The beauty of the BMW 1 Series Convertible puts the city lights in the shade and opens up a whole new world for the premium convertible buyer. Perfect for the Gold
Coast climate, the BMW 1 Series Convertible boasts a multi-layer, acoustic insulated soft top, providing a snug, cosy interior in winter. Summer is a breeze too, thanks
to BMW’s innovative SunReflective Technology which reduces leather seat surface temperature by up to 20 degrees when the car is in the hot sun. Looking equally
as stunning with the roof up or down, the new BMW 1 Series Convertible is destined to bring a new sense of style to the Gold Coast - no matter what the season.

Sports Hatch: Classic and Chic
The first in the line of 1 Series models, the Sports Hatch offers drivers the luxury and convenience of compact city driving. Practicality combines with sheer sportiness
to make the 130i Sport a unique presence in the Australian market – a potent engine delivering its power to the rear wheels is something only BMW offers in this

The new BMW 1 Series range offers an unrivalled choice of premium compact models that give both the ease of inner city travel, while portraying
elegance like no other.

Only the best.
BMW Premium Selection - Exclusive used Vehicles.
The BMW Premium Selection program is reserved exclusively for used BMW vehicles that fulfil defined premium standards.

A Select Few.
Only the finest BMW vehicles are selected for BMW Premium Selection. To begin with, they must have been serviced by authorised BMW Dealers and have been
fitted with Genuine BMW Parts – with a complete BMW service history to prove it. Then, only after a full 100-point inspection by factory-trained BMW technicians is
it ready for the toughest inspection of all - yours.

The ultimate warranty - A BMW warranty.
The full BMW experience means nothing less than a minimum 12-month, unlimited kilometre, nationwide BMW factory-backed warranty. This is a warranty that
cannot be matched, with the exclusive cover, support and benefits only BMW can provide. For the ultimate peace of mind, it has to be a BMW Warranty.

Complimentary scheduled servicing.
If a BMW isn’t meticulously maintained, it won’t achieve BMW Premium Selection status. To ensure BMW Premium Selection vehicles continue to operate exactly as
BMW intended, they come backed with a minimum 12-month or 25,000 km free scheduled servicing.* This servicing is performed by authorised BMW technicians
and ensures that the BMW experience is maintained - perfectly.

*12 months or 25,000 km (whichever comes first) free scheduled servicing based on BMW condition based servicing. Vehicles not requiring service within 12 months or 25,000 km (as defined by the vehicle’s service
 indicator) will still receive a scheduled service free of charge when it falls due. Normal wear and tear items and other exclusions apply including age and kilometre restrictions. Consult the team at Bruce Lynton for further
 terms and conditions.

Assistance available 24 hours a day
BMW Premium Selection owners have a minimum 12 months instant access to all the help they need with BMW Group Roadside Assistance and Accident
Management available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Peace of mind. Extended.
Every Premium Selection vehicle comes with the option of extending your 12-month warranty for a further 12 or 24-month term.* This not only brings further peace
of mind but also helps protect your investment. When you choose to extend your warranty you also receive the added benefit of having your scheduled servicing
extended to the same term. We stand behind every vehicle. For the long run.

* Extending your scheduled servicing by 12 months or 25,000 km will ensure you receive a minimum of one service free of charge when it falls due. Extending your scheduled servicing by 24 months or 50,000 km will
  ensure you receive a minimum of two services free of charge. Service extensions are based on BMW condition based servicing and normal wear and tear items and other exclusions apply including age and kilometre
  restrictions. Consult the team at Bruce Lynton for further terms and conditions.

                                                                                                                                                                                         Bruce Lynton BMW                 11

John Cooper was a driver of legendary skill and a builder of legendary cars. In the 1950s and 60s he ushered in a new era in racing car construction – and
laid the foundations for John Cooper Works. The new MINI John Cooper Works and MINI John Cooper Works Clubman have lost none of their predecessors’
magic and muscle, proving that engineering genius and pure racing spirit are an unbeatable combination.

So, do you have what it takes? The all new, all powerful John Cooper Works has finally arrived at Bruce Lynton MINI Garage! Offering breathtaking
performance, 155 kW of raw power and 280Nm at 2000rpm. Just listen to the sports exhaust and you’ll know why we’ve added bigger brakes to the 17-
inch alloy wheels. With a top speed of 238 km/h, go from zero to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and get your blood pumping! It’s sure to deliver the drive of your
life – perfectly assured through corners, with breathtaking acceleration on straights there’s only one disappointment – the knowledge that eventually, you’ll
have to get out.

Contact our MINI Specialist Danny Pettiona on (07) 5557 999 or for more information.

MINI CHALLENGE was launched in 2008 as an eight round support
to the V8 Supercars. The series has since visited many of Australia’s
finest race circuits, including the place where the MINI legend first
came to prominence in Australia – Mount Panorama, Bathurst.

Forming the basis of MINI CHALLENGE is the iconic MINI with the
addition of a John Cooper Works performance package – making
this the most potent MINI ever built! Australia is the first country
in the world to utilise the R56 model MINI John Cooper Works
CHALLENGE racecar,

We wish Beric the best of luck as he enters the race series for the
first time behind the wheel! So, keep an eye on number 80 - a MINI
Australia Challenge car sponsored by Crimsafe and Castrol.                                      Photo courtesy of Marshall Cass Photography
