BMW 3-Series Touring 320d (177bhp) SE 5d (2007/57) - Owner Review

Very comfortable interior but the boot, even on a 'Touring' car is too small for the loads of golf gear, trollies etc. Could do with improved storage for smaller items.. mobile, handbook etc.

Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
-

When did you buy the car?
April 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Not especially - they seem to be very popular and didn't give much discount.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
320d had great reviews and appeared to be class leader, both powerful & economic. Also needed enough room for golfing gear. Rear doors for access to grandchildren!

What was the dealer like?
Too many girls front of house!! But provided coffee & were friendly enough in a superior sort of way.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Wonderful. Love driving it. Plenty of power, steers positively & handles well. Cruises effortlessly.

What's it like to park?
Ok, visibility could be better but the rear park sensors help somewhat.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes. Had to have a new steering column fitted under warranty as something went wrong with locking system. Central locking developed a fault, also repaired free. Nothing since warranty expired (fingers crossed!).

What's most practical about your car?
Very comfortable interior but the boot, even on a 'Touring' car is too small for the loads of golf gear, trollies etc. Could do with improved storage for smaller items.. mobile, handbook etc.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Love the cruise control as never had this before. Efficient dynamics is pretty cool too but it takes getting used to as the car appears to cut out when stopped at lights etc. Love the LEDs in door handles.
