What does this car say about you?
I think it implies we have more money than we actually have.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

Hopefully another BMW.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
January 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
We thought it was a good deal, £5,000 discount on that model.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
A new model was being introduced so there were bargains in the showroom for the old model.

What was the dealer like?
We were treated like honoured guests and enjoyed the whole experience like the home baking and hot chocolate in china cups. We didn't feel pressured at all, the car virtually sold itself.

Driving it

What's it like to park?
Easy with the rear parking sensors.

Living with it

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Rear parking sensor.
