BMW 3-Series Coupe (06-13)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Unfortunately it probably has the image of middle management mobile.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Mixed opinions, most love it but some think (to quote) that its a 'w##kers car'.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definitely, this car does everything. It is practical, well built, powerful, handles well, sounds and looks great and still does 45mpg with cheap running costs.

What are you likely to buy next?
4 series coupe.

Good value on trade in, money off the screen, mats, fuel and plate transfer fee included.

I came from an E46 320cd SE, which I loved.

Salesman was very helpful, as is the service desk. Communication between workshop and sales team leaves a lot to be desired.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Superb engine. Power delivery is like that of a petrol, sounds fantastic at revs, is quiet when driving normally. Handles beautifully, composed for a heavy car.

What's it like to park?
No problem, not a massive car and has good visibility and parking sensors.

Love the auto seatbelts, the stereo is also very powerful and clear.
