Perfect

I've owned my bmw since april 2009. Bought for £1600 with 6mths tax and 4 mth MOT

Lovely car with good mpg on the motorways. Spacious boot and plenty of room for 4 people. 5 is pushing it due to smaller space in the rear. Looks wise, its very nice. Clean lines with none of the plastic ugly bulges of modern cars.
In terms of upkeep...yes the tax and insurance can be a bit expensive. Parts from bmw are not cheap so its best to make friends with the local scrappy or ebay. However, the reliability does counteract the costs as mine is just short of 200k and still running beautifully. Bought her at 152k so high mileage but unquestionable reliability.
Mine does tend to have an appetite for tyres and suspension bushes but thats quite common with these cars as I understand it.
Even last year when it was hit by a deer. Involving a complete rebuild of the front end, respray, new battery etc. Costing over £1000 I couldnt bare to part with the old girl.
