Quick, smooth, refined
Only fault so far has been a leak round the wind-screen, caused by a badly fitted replacement (not by BMW). Otherwise it's been perfect.
Very smooth engine, effortless motorway cruising, acceptable fuel consumption - 32mpg on a steady run.
Model without a sun-roof, has excellent headroom. Rear headroom not so good, but passengers can walk if they feel that strongly about it!
Seats are firm but very comfortable on long trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
