Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Makes you feel special even that I like to keep low profile. Road presence is great.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
I get questions like is it hard to park it. It must be juicy on fuel. Insurance must be expensive. But they don't own the car I do. It's a good family car or for business use. Which ever it is my every day car used for kids school runs. Work/shopping etc and no problems. Financially it is economical to run. Insurance £500 (I'm 42). Nothing is expensive about it only looks and badge.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes please. The best car I had so far. Would not own Audi or Mercedes. Not in the same league. Tried them, rented them my friends have them. To me this is at very top or close to the top for quality cars.

What are you likely to buy next?
Will always own BMW after trying everything else. Would be nice to own BMW M5 or M3.

Big car with lots of extras. Got it cheap on low millage. Have large family. Very comfortable and safe car to drive. Love the looks. My 4th BMW so far.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very comfortable to drive with big comfy seats. Like any other car it doesn't like the pot holes on the road. After all it is a big and heavy car so this is understandable. Built for any type of journey. Feels very safe.

What's it like to park?
Easy to manoeuvre the car in and out from thighs spots due to precise parking sensors. It is a large car and takes some getting use to it at first if you are changing from smaller car. This is understanding. But no issues really.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing wrong so far. Still within 5 years 60000 miles bracket giving me free servicing at BMW dealer. Fantastic car to drive. Makes you feel special every time you drive it. Love the sound system, lots of adjustments and extras. Good quality car. Had two 5series before this but can not be compared with 7 series.

What's most practical about your car?
Everything is easy to use. Parking the car can be difficult in same places due to it's size but the car is easy to manoeuvre with good visibility all around.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Changing the mode from comfort to sports. It transforms the car and really makes the difference. Very fast and capable car when you want it to be.
