Smooth, Fast and brilliant driving experience

Have owned this car for two years, bought on E-Bay and basically a one owner car due to inter-family transfer (husband died). It has only travelled 65,000 in nearly 11 years and drives very well. The maintenance has been a tad expensive as the auto box did not like getting up in the morning (especially when it's a bit cold) and had some work done to improve the situation. Biggest mistake was to add my own alloys which are Dezent 18" gunmetal bellagios, should have left the original BMW wheels on the car. The car 'konked out' when visiting Blackpool when the crankcase flywheel disintegrated and I lost power steering, water distribution and electrics. Took nine hours to get back to the Midlands via three recovery trucks (they were all decent chaps - good humoured and efficient). Still love the car but because it's lowered it can be a bit difficult to get in the car for someone like myself, who should have bought this type of car ten years ago. Fuel consumption good, the diesel engine pulls well and am looking to buy a newer model perhaps an SE version with lower tax etc.
