What does this car say about you?
Successful but understated

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
September 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
Leased it for the first 2 years and it didn't cost much more than a 5 series with a few extras. I have now brought it and due to the current economic climate I got an absolute bargain.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Had a great finance package on it at the time

What was the dealer like?
Sales teams were good but service teams are average. Previously owned Audi's and found their service was better, BMW seem to look down their noses at you.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It drives like a dream, really is 2 cars in one, a grand tourer on the motorway and a responsive drivers car on A & B roads. You get a buzz just driving it

What's it like to park?
It's huge, parking sensors really help but you'll have to find a space big enough for it first

Living with it

5 out of 5

What's most practical about your car?
It's huge and everyone travels in luxury

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Definaltely the upgraded sound system, it is fantastic!!
