Overview

"A dream car"

Exterior and Interior

Externally the car looks great, low and sports like. I've got a sparkling graphite version that looks really classy. The alloys really set it off nicely. The wing mirrors are heated and electric and fold in at the touch of a button meaning it's easy to make sure they are tucked in safely. The interior is wonderful, everything you could wish for. Mine has a factory fitted sat nav and blue tooth and the iDrive which I know some people hate. I'm getting used to it, it's not hard to use just something new. The leather seats are electric and mine are heated as well, pure luxury. I also have paddle shift and a manual mode so semi automatic gearbox.

Performance and Economy

Performance is incredible. The power this car has is unbelievable. It does 0-60 in just over 5 seconds! The engine purrs loudly, sounds fantastic. Of course petrol consumption is high but not as high as I had feared.

Like to Drive

The drive is very smooth. This is the sort of car that you go out in just because you can! Despite the engine power it's not hard to handle, the traction control means it really sticks to the road. The numerous airbags mean that if the worst happens you are properly protected, what more could you ask for. <

Faults and Repairs

So far I've not had any faults with the car. I'm sure repairs wise something will need doing at some point, there are too many fancy gadgets for something not to go wrong. It's worth it though.

Overview

"320 d M sport manual review"

Exterior and Interior

Great BMW heritage / history combined with elegant classic design. The paint finish and alloys really set off the le mans blue paint. The car has the optional full Dakota leather in black which is a good contrast to blue exterior. The standard equipment is OK but worth upgrading to full leather and bluetooth in my own view. The bluetooth can be operated from the multi-function steering wheel to safely take a call if needed.

Performance and Economy

BMW have the lead in this class of motoring, the economy , power and emissions are all beyond anything any other car maker has produced so far.

Like to Drive

The driving dynamics are brilliant, sharp responsive steering, trade mark rear wheel drive power delivery. Low suspension gives the 'feel' of closeness to road and a real driving experience for true driving fans and commuters alike. <

Faults and Repairs

I have only had one small issue with the car in terms of reliability and that was only a repeated tyre pressure warning light came on. It was in fact my fault for not re setting the system after checking the tyre pressures at a local service station.The service adviser spent some time making sure I fully understood this essential safety feature.

Overview

"Brilliant "

Exterior and Interior

Fantastic to look at from every angle. Modern and stylish packed with tech. Comfy for long drives and fuel efficient. Easy to keep clean and even with just a simple quick wash without all the wax ect brings the car to an amazing shine

Performance and Economy

Around town its a little juicy and has not got a tremendous amount of acceleration but it certainly has something special under the hood. The rev from the engine sounds fantastic and on the motorway it has fantastic efficiency.

Like to Drive

Has an amazing sporty feel yet luxurious at the same time, a very safe and sturdy car, great in all driving conditions and small features such as the traction control and clutch make it wonderful to drive about town, motorway driving couldn't be better with the cruise control which even applies the brakes unlike other systems. <

Faults and Repairs

No faults or repairs since purchase, good on oil, has every engine indicator under the sun so no random expensive bills without warning
