Summary

1 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It's just a nice looking car. Not as flashy as some Mercedes models.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Didn't really comment much, but then I wouldn't want them to.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No. And I really hate to say that because I've been buying BMWs since 1989.

What are you likely to buy next?
An Audi.

Driving it

1 out of 5

Horrible. A slug. It coughts and splutters, the clutch judders. Whenever I had a long drive to do, I took my wife's VW Passat.

What's it like to park?
Easy because of parking sensors.
