Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Excellent drive and particularly with the roof down. The car is responsive and very quick. Why have an M3 when a 330D is this quick.

What's it like to park?
Very easy. Passenger side door mirror tilts down so you can see the kerb and the parking sensors are brilliant.

Have you had any problems with the car?
Just an annoying rattle from the boot when the roof was down. The first time in they changed a locking mechanism and the second time just greased lots of joints.

What's most practical about your car?
A proper four seat convertible sports car which sounds and goes better with the roof down.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sat nav , being able to send information to the car from my computer. The I drive is very good and being able to bluetooth music from my phone.
