What does this car say about you?
Not much. This was purchased to be a work horse.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Haven't asked them.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Not will all the issues we have had with this one. We have owned BMW's for a number of years including X5's M3's z4. This is by far the worst one we have owned. Never had any issues eith the others.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Holds the road well for a 4x4. Apart from that pretty uninspiring.

What's it like to park?
Easy when the parking sensors work! Not when they don't! Lots of blind spots.

Living with it

2 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The parking sensors are constantly malfunctioning. It has been back to BMW 6 times and they still have not rectified the problem. Also the paint on the front of the car has started to peel off in shreds! BMW are fixing this under warranty. Even so you do not expect this from a £6k car let alone a £35k one!

What's most practical about your car?
High seating position.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Business media is ok. We could not find one with professional media at the time.
