BMW 3-Series Touring 320d SE 5d (99) (2000/X) - Owner Review

Corners extremely well, depsite being an estate. Lovely to drive - wish it was an auto. BMW uprated this model's BHP so that you can now get it as an auto.

BMW 3-Series Touring (99-05)

Value

4 out of 5

BMW uprated the standard equipment just before I got the car, so well equipped, but still had to pay for a CD.

Costs

2 out of 5

I get nearly 600 miles/tank and about 50mpg. Car tells you when a service is required and they haven't had to do anything except standard ones so don't think it's that expensive (i'ts a company car).

Performance

4 out of 5

Diesel means slight lag when pulling away, but once going there are very few things that seem to be able to out accelerate it when overtaking - the turbo is a dream!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Nothing mechanical. Minor electrical and the key has had to be changed twice.

Image

4 out of 5

Depends what sort of image you want - BMW drivers seem to have attained a particular image that one would not want to be associated with!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Chose the sports seats instead of the standard ones - I never have had backache, despite doing more than 2000 miles/month.
