yes, i may be tempted to go for the diesel next time though.

an e93, not for years though, why change something you love!

October 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
make sure you have dece3nt tyres on it and theyre the right size. conti sport by continental are what you want. get the auto with the trip tronic for "enthusiastic" driving.

What's it like to park?
not too bad, usual bigger blind spot as its a convertible but you get a auto moving nearside mirror when you engage reverse to show you the kerb which is a nice touch. try and get one with reverse sensors too, they are helpfull.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
the only niggle is the notorious stiff door handles but there is a quick fix for these with an alan key. that aside its gorgeous

What's most practical about your car?
the space in the front for the driver and passenger. really, youd struggle with adults in the back if the driver over 6ft.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
sat nav tv pack, it really works!
