BMW 3-Series Coupe (06-13)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I dread to think! I'm not keen on the BMW driver image.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Friends and family think it's great but flashy. Neighbours have similar or better.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes it's a great allrounder. However with a dog and a horse it's not the most practical shape.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another 320d but the estate as its so much more practical.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very good on both motorways and B roads. fast and good enough handling to be fun. Recently did Oxford to Edinburgh effortlessly and comfortably. Suspension a bit hard for the rough roads and pot holes though. Tows a IW 403.horse trailer easily - although it does look pretty silly!

What's it like to park?
Very good turning circle. Rear parking sensors are good. Handbrake takes a big effort to be effective though so I leave it in gear.
