Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I often have loads to lug around (big buggy in the boot, wife, baby etc). The 330 M Sport touring says I wanted a family car, but a powerful and smart one.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love it! Black with black leather and the M-sport kit always goes down well.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes I would. In fact I'd have gone for a 335i that I found, nut the tax was nearly £500 per year and I couldn't justify that!

What are you likely to buy next?
Probably a 5 series touring, but not for a few years once the family grows further still!

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£13,000

When did you buy the car?
August 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I negotiated £800 off the asking price and managed get 6 months tax in for free. I basically put the deal to him and said take it or leave it, he said he couldn't possibly do it at first but was soon on the phone after I left the show room having said I was off to view another one!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
New baby meant we needed more space!

What was the dealer like?
Ok. Typical sales man, but what else do you expect!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great! Very powerful, quick and eats the motorway miles with ease. Very comfortable to drive.

What's it like to park?
Front and rear parking sensors useful. Tyres slightly overlap the edge of the alloys which makes them far harder to curb!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Occasional flat spot at low speed which was fixed under warranty.

What's most practical about your car?
Big boot with under floor storage and five doors!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
First automatic I've owned and I can't ever see myself going back. Under floor storage in the boot is very useful. Auto lights are great as is air conditioned drinks holder in the arm rest. Voice control for my phone is a nice touch too.
