Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I find the 16" wheels and huge run flat tryes skittish. It tramlines on motorways and is uninspriing on back roads. Perhaps the 17" on the new model are better? In the snow it is atrocious, I was embarrassed at the amount of times I got stuck and had to be pushed!

What's it like to park?
Fine. Good visibility and PDC makes you very lazy!

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes- plenty (78k)! Car has had 3 x clutches, 2 x flywheels, new engine mounts and continues to give me problems every day! BMW Service has been awful with the engineers and computers unable to 'find' the faults I experience each and every day. Definately not the reliability I expected.

What's most practical about your car?
