BMW 3-Series Touring 320d Sport 5d Auto (2003/03) - Owner Review

Low profile tyres stear car in ruts, can be alarming. Also very high road noise on non-tarmac motorways, so you can't hear any other noise or the radio!

BMW 3-Series Touring (99-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Lot of money for a small noisy car, well finished.

Costs

3 out of 5

Free servicing for 3 years will be offset by high cost of tyres wearing at 13,000 miles already. Expected better fuel economy, getting 32mpg ish running around, can reach 40mpg on long jouney but soon drops when off Motorway.

Performance

4 out of 5

150bhp very good. Auto relaxed driving, manual quicker.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Rear floor flooded, long wait of 6 weeks for Ocean BMW to have time to fix, new carpets as smelling bit like an old pair of wet boots.

Image

Looks smart, did not buy for image.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Sports seats good, leather trim smart well finished, but tyre road noise spoils the driving, should have bought the SE not the sport, ride also very hard.
