BMW 3-Series Touring (99-05)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought from Belgium and saved £5k. Compared to the Audi A4 this is better value. There is a lot of standard kit (dipping mirror, cruise, rear parking) which costs about £2k on the Audi.

Costs

5 out of 5

It averages 53mpg on a run, depreciation is very low, servicing costs are cheap as chips.

Driving

4 out of 5

Handles very well, very stable, loves fast A roads, Better than my old Impreza Turbo.

Performance

4 out of 5

It has 150bhp. Because all the power is low down the rev range, it feels a lot faster than it is. Having previously owned an Impreza Turbo, I never feel that it is struggling. There is always plenty of power on tap.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Nothing has gone wrong yet.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very comfortable for long journeys, especially with the optional sports seats.
