BMW 3-Series Coupe 320 Cd M Sport 2d (2005/55) - Owner Review

With it being the coupe it obviously has 2 doors, so with other cars I find it a pain letting people in the back. As there isn't much room. But in the BMW, when the seats fold forward, they can also raise up. (Wizardry happens), and it allows much more room to get in and out!

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£7,100

When did you buy the car?
June 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I feel I paid a little more than it's worth, maybe £500-750 more. But I was really picky when it came to the colour, interior, features combination. So it was the only one available at the time.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Always wanted one from being a teenager.

What was the dealer like?
Very friendly. She looked after the car well and was quite attached to it.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great drive. It handles really well and feels very "solid". Power is great, overtaking is effortless. It has 6 gears too which is great for motorways. I tend to drive quite hard at times, so I only average about 34MPG, but when i've taken it steady I've managed to get 45MPG.

What's it like to park?
It's quite difficult to see out of the rear window, so it's best not to bother. This model does come with reversing sensors however, which is immensely helpful!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heaters get really warm quick. And it's very comfortable.
