Value

5 out of 5

Buy 2nd hand with plenty of miles - let someone else take the depreciation and you're up chuckle street with your laughing trousers on.

Costs

3 out of 5

Don't let BMW keep changing the air con filters - it's a complete ripoff for 2 cardboard accordions.

Driving

As good as the 2 E class Mercs I've had.

But don't lose the keys.

Service

5 out of 5

Don't let them recommend replacing electrical stuff on old cars - who cares if you can't see what the temperature is outside?
