BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
People seem to think that i am loaded now!! But that is not the reason I bought the car. The fact is for the money you will be hard pressed to find a rear wheel drive car which would better it in power, looks and reliabilty.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Get some jealous looks from all friends/family and neighbours. Neighbours are a bit annoyed of the sound it makes in the morning!!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definately!! It makes me feel good when I look at it and it makes me feel great when I drive it.

What are you likely to buy next?
A BMW M3. Hopefully I will be able to afford the insurance by then.. But for now... I'm not selling even if I win the lottery.

Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£12,000

When did you buy the car?
March 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got a great price and a reasonable part exchange. Also offered warranty which was an added security.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Rear wheel drive, 236 bhp, 2dr, great chassis etc etc etc... the luxury car image helps as well....

What was the dealer like?
Dealer was very helpful and polite. Didn't do the hard sell and assisted with any concerns i had. Even offered to fix up some minor faults in the paint work.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Absolutely amazing!! Best car I have ever driven! Sticks to the road like glue. Back can slide out but always very controllable. Dives into any corner with urgency. Drive this car on a country B road and it eggs you on to go faster and faster. The 3 litre V6 makes an impresive noice but is not too intrusive on gentle motorway cruising. After a long journey I always have a massive grin on my face!! The car is unique in its ability to get you in a good mood whenever you drive it.

What's it like to park?
Rear and all round visibility is excellent. The mirrors are very well proportioned and assist parking immensley (see favourite gadget). And the rear parking sensors make parking a doodle. Even the missus can reverse park now!! Result!!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing so far...but its early days yet...

What's most practical about your car?
Rear boot space is amazing for a good looking fast moving car. Rear space for passangers is amazingly adequate as well...

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I love that the passanger side rear window dips when i put it in reverse so as not to curb the alloys. But favourite bit of detail is when the windows open automatically when you keep the open button pressed. Makes opening the frameless windowed door all the more impressive!! Great for summer months!!
