All like the look and enjoy going for a drive in the car.

Would go for another 3 Series but not a coupe as now have kids on the way.

Diesel estate :(.

Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?

When did you buy the car?
September 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Got a reasonable deal although in hindsight spent more than I would have liked on several repairs that cropped up within 6 months of buying the car so maybe not the best car I have ever bought.

Always liked the look of them and wanted a great handling coupe.

Have you had any problems with the car?
Car is getting on so had to replace items more age related, discs and pads, suspension bushes and wishbones, door handle, maf sensor, couple of tyres.

What's most practical about your car?
Decent boot and surprising room in the rear seats.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Climate control and electric everything. Seats lay back flat - great for a quick nap if needed!
