BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

4 out of 5

Excellent value though bought as ex company car not through dealer but £1000s less than my old Peugoet 307, and you certainly feel like you have spent your money well.

Costs

4 out of 5

Passed MOT no problems. Service costs seem steep. About to have Brake Fluid service (£90). Service costs average about £200 depending on mileage. Good not to be stuck with 12000 or 12months, the services are when you have completed the mileage.

Driving

5 out of 5

Excellent Drive (although a bit more daring in the wet). Solid handling.

Performance

4 out of 5

Not as quick as the 2 litre but still shifts very well (Especially as I had a Diesel 1.4 before). Power gets you out of tight spots but beware of the wheel spinning!

Reliability

5 out of 5

NO problems yet, again, fingers crossed.

Cool, damn cool, real cool!. A proper head turner.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Cannot fault this at all. Space in rear more than adequate.

Can't really comment, awaiting first services in my ownership.
