would like to go for the 3L version but due to the excessive mileage that i do would settle for a newer version of the current model.

Buying experience

Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£15,995

When did you buy the car?
May 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
16grand for a 2 year old beamer i'll say so. plus £4k for a 4 year old Megane that had problems from the moment I bought it and regretted ever since.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
had a wage rise at work and could afford it, and was a huge step up from my crappy Megane

What was the dealer like?
BMW Dealer (Benham Wolves)were superb. couldn't do enough to help, made me feel welcome and constantly plied myself and my wife with coffee. the salesman made us feel like proper customers, a massive difference from these car supermarkets who are only interested in pushing as many through the door as possible

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
speedy acceleration, responsive handling and comfy seats although the run flat tyres do make the ride a bit hard but am used to that from previous car which had stiffened suspension

What's it like to park?
rear parking indicators make it very easy

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not yet (touchwood) apart fom the usual wear and tear items (new tyre and new headlight bulb), which is why i bought it really as i'd spent numerous amounts of time and money on previous cars.

What's most practical about your car?
loads of leg room.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Aux port for i-pod, and heater/demister is superb inthe winter
