Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I like reliability, style and great build quality. And it's quick....which I like too.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think it's great and a bit scary at traffic lights.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Not until my 2 children have flown the nest. A 6'2" son wasn't comfortable in the back.

What are you likely to buy next?
A Landrover Freelander. I need a 4WD to tow a trailer but don't want a great tank.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
-

When did you buy the car?
September 2008

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got a price off the interent for 10K less than BMW dealer and they matched it! Including breakdown cover, seal and protect and a free car cleaning kit and a full tank of diesel.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
It was a bit different and offered good performance figures but could also be quite frugal when driven sensibly (althoug it's hard to do that with such a sporty car).

What was the dealer like?
He was great actually. Not too pushy in the showroom but phoned me quite a lot. Showed me alternatives for the same money to help me make my mind up.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fabulous! Really responsive in sport mode and gentle tootles in the town.

What's it like to park?
Easy. Excellent lock and parking sensors.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing. It's been utterly reliable but it doesn't do snow! Very low profile big fat tyres, rear wheel drive...it stayed on the drive for 2 weeks in 2010.

What's most practical about your car?
It's economical, it's fun, the boot is nopt a bad size but practical... four adults struggle unless they're particularly supple!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Blue tooth is really good and the sound system is excellent.
