Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
We've gone through 2 beamers. The first one, we didnt get much discount and the 2nd was a replacement for our first one due to the vast number of faults we had with it.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

What was the dealer like?
At first, they were extremely bad and after numerous complaints and faults with our car and a new manager, our queries got sorted.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
This car comes into its own here. I have never driven a car, or a convertible let alone with such amazing handling and noise from a diesel! It is so powerful, effortlessly does everything I could ever ask it to do; the auto gearbox is also extremely amazing, especially the paddle shifts!

What's it like to park?
Pretty easy, front and rear sensors. Just conscious of scratches and stuff from other cars really.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Our first one; everything went wrong. It must of been a friday nighter: front end exhaust came off, gearbox faults, we didnt even have an air conditioning compressor put in the car along with a vast array of other faults. Our 2nd one, a facelift model which has replaced my 2008/58 is a completely different story, this is exactly what i wanted from a BMW. The difference in driving experience and faultless driving from the same car is a miracle!

What's most practical about your car?
The handy storage fold out bins in the doors and the roof.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The roof, and the way you can put it down and up using the key.
