BMW 3-Series Touring 318d SE Business Edition 5d Step Auto (2010/10)

BMW 3-Series Touring 318d SE Business Edition 5d Step Auto (2010/10) - Owner Review

The hatchback boot with virtually no lip makes putting things in the back easy. I usually keep the basket net behind the rear seats permanently up to the roof, so I can easily load it to the max when required.

I've considered buying the new 320d Touring next time (as it is bigger), but I'll probably look at something with an even bigger boot than that.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Had a few faults pop up with no reason for them to have happened - all fixed under warranty. Part of the suspension, steering column and a problem with the windows electrics. My previous BMW (also from new) didn't have anything go wrong over 5 years, so I'm not sure what happened this time.

What's most practical about your car?
The hatchback boot with virtually no lip makes putting things in the back easy. I usually keep the basket net behind the rear seats permanently up to the roof, so I can easily load it to the max when required.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sat-nav updates for traffic. Leather seats. Easy boot access.
