Summary

3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I can afford a prestige car but I need family size space. Middle management.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Posh but not inspiring.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No, my career has moved on from having to hammer home a first impression.

What are you likely to buy next?
Whatever pleases us most. In the end it was a rx8 but we are now looking to change that for a classic car or a RAV4.

Driving it

2 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Dull. Geared for economy not responsiveness. Nose heavy negating any rear wheel drive dynamics. Steering not up to bmw reputation. Not numb but certainly not direct or super communicative.

What's it like to park?
Easy. Square and with parking sensors.
