What does this car say about you?
Environmentally conscious, professional.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think it looks good.

Would you buy this car again and why?
The car would need to have better seats. This is a problem with all 3 Series. I have also tried the leather seats in a different 3 Series, which had a daft moveable section at the front of the seat.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
OK, very stable on the motorway, good on country roads. Steering can feel a bit detached, probably due to the low friction tyres. Front seats are too small for me and not very much lateral support.

What's it like to park?
The high front wings make it difficult to judge at the front, however, I have parked in a space with 4" to spare at either end. The reversing camera is very good for this. The parking sensors sometimes sound as though they are having a nervous breakdown.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heated driver's seat.
