A little quiz!

A fortnight ago, 5 members of our local church left for Romania in two cars, a 2001 R45 1.4, and a 2005 BMW 1 series, carrying aid, childrens's clothing and food & sustinance to help alleviate the dreadful conditions in an orphanage that they support. Indeed, the R45 was towing a twin-axle box trailer as well, and on it's 3rd visit to the country.

They returned at 1600 hrs today - all in one car. The other has suffered what the manufacturer now admits is a 'significant mechanical failure' and is stranded some 185 km north-west of Craiova requiring a new engine. And because of what they quaintly term 'lack of product familiarity' in that region, it will have to be moved some 500 km to a dealer to fit the unit. And to compound the woes, there is a row going on because the manufacturer-negotiated travel insurance apparently does not cover transportation costs in that region. So it seems the poor owners will have to foot a hefty transport bill.

Can you tell which one? CLUE-The one that returned was still towing the trailer.

One of MGR's favourite marketing quotes used to be that the R45 had the lowest warranty claims of any car across the group while under BMW ownership. In other words it was apparently more reliable than all the BMW's too
