Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
In my eyes the cars a small compromise ie I was adamant I was going to buy an e46 m3 but after searching for many months it was obvious that good specimens were few and far however if you can live with 2 seats this car is as good performance wise and cheaper to run and better looking 31 mpg £200 fully comp ins and a lot rarer.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
The kids love it , friends like the shape and the neighbours think I'm going through a mid life crisis.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would buy the car again however I'm always looking at the m series 5 or 3 or z3m z4m.

What are you likely to buy next?
I'd love an 840 sport.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great to drive , fantastic acceleration 0 - 60 5.5 sec. Watch your chins and bellys the suspension is hard and it takes some getting used to but all is forgiven when you throw it into corners.

What's it like to park?
Parking is not a problem , big nose fat arse , parking sensors on back should be on front.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Only problem I've had is that the side lights give up and the indicator light comes on as a precaution however you give the headlight a thump or you unplug lights and replug and "just like that" it's fine.

What's most practical about your car?
Good sized boot , weekly shopping no problem.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sport button , what a difference to the acceleration.
