The best car I have ever owned, fast, frugal and very comfortable

Bought from the local BMW Dealer in April 2006 to be used as a company car. When first purchased it had 30K on the clock. Today it has covered 233,000 miles and rising. A joy to drive on both long and short journeys.

Fuel returns, are city 37 mpg, and on long runs between 41mpg and 45mpg (traffic dependent).

It covers 15K miles between services and then if there are any issues they are quickly sorted.

Let me down only once when the fuel pump in the fuel tank gave up. Fortunately only a short trip to the garage by recovery vehicle.

It will be replaced by a similar car but petrol next time, which may be a long time coming.

This car has cost me nothing as it has been run on a company allowance

Looks good, feels good and highly recommended
