BMW 3-Series Compact 320td Sport 3d (2004/04) - Owner Review

Capable of both relaxed cruising and back road fun. The diesel engine delivers so much torque it even makes my dads 330i feel weedy at low revs (below about 4k)!

BMW 3-Series Compact (01-04)

Value

5 out of 5

Bearing in mind the quality of car (and the dealer service) I'd say the value is first rate.

Costs

3 out of 5

You can get cheaper cars - but then they are all a bit naff by comparison.

Performance

4 out of 5

The handling, grip and ESP are all amazing, I'm really impressed by them. Although brisk I'll probably end up getting it chipped ~ 195bhp!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Slight air-con thing going on. But haven't had time to return to dealer yet.

I like it.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Sports suspension is quite firm, small ruts on a motorway will upset you. However that's the price you pay for tight controlled handling when the going gets.... going!
