Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
You can't abide diesels and you know what is comfortable sporty and good to drive. You are a badge snob?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Not much really. 3 series are common.

Would you buy this car again and why?
It's my 8th bmw so yes. There are few rear wheel drive cars and mercs are not my thing. Great engine and handling.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another bmw 3 series. Not sure on engine though. Lots to chose from!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Awesome. Really flies as the revs rise. Great handling even though it's an SE. DeceNt tyres all round make a big difference.

What's it like to park?
Easy. Has rear parking sensors and passenger mirror dips in reverse.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Windscreen washer fluid clogged up filter and you have to remove inner arch cover to access. It's a pain. E46 bottle was under the bonnet. Uses bit more oil than any other bmw I have had. Also doesn't like running on normal unleaded. Always gets shell super.

What's most practical about your car?
Everything. It's a family saloon. Plenty big enough. Gadgets are good such as auto lights and wipers.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Auto lights and wipers and heated seats.
