What price did you pay?
£12,500

When did you buy the car?
April 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
It was a high mileage model, but had a great spec & full BMW service history. It was well presented and at a competitive price.

Good reviews, power and ecomony. It was a good 2nd hand buy.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great drive & feel, I look forward to every journey. Very sure footed and great feeling throught the steering wheel. Very quick off the mark and plenty of pull up to higher speeds.

What's it like to park?
The parking sensors are good, although my model doesn't have them at the front. The only thing I sometimes can't judge well is the distance on the drivers side for white lines in parking spaces. I guess its because you are quite low down. The seats can move but I prefer being lower whilst driving.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
There has been a problem with the boot catch, but it is still covered and has been repaired under the BMW 3year / unlimited mileage warrenty.

What's most practical about your car?
Good size for its class. I would like a bigger boot, but I should have got an estate.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Stereo, harddrive, Sat Nav, bluetooth interface, sports mode, xenon lights, sunroof...the list goes on.
