What does this car say about you?
I spent too much!

Yes, I like it but would prefer the coupe if only it fitted needs.

Nothing for a while. BM's last well - our previous car is still in the family & running at 16 years old.

April 2010

Ok, but a bit snotty.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Handles well & great on motorways/ dual carriageways. Steering light, precise & responsive. well balanced. Rear wheel drive means its a bit skiddy on ice.

What's it like to park?
Ok, the rear parking sensors help but rear visibility for reverse parking a bit restricted by headrests & pillars.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Needed new steering column (done under warranty), also electric locking went awry (also dealer sorted free).

What's most practical about your car?
Comfortable. Has, just, enough storage space although why BMW don't increase this abit is a mystery.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Love the cruise control (1st time) & the efficient dynamics but it does take geting used to - a bit odd the first time engine switches off at lights.
