The ultimate every day performance car
Nothing so far, but it is early days.
Having had various BMW models in the past, I don't think that anything will break just yet.
This car beats the current C class Mercedes hands down!
I know this because I have just disposed of my 2002 C320 because the build quality was dreadful.
This car feels so solid, and the performance and handling are quite superb.
Even though it has covered a high mileage for its age, it looks and feels like a new car, albeit with a few minor stone chips on the front bumper.
I have never worried about buying a BMW with a few more miles on it, because they handle it extremely well and as long as they have a documented service history, high mileage should not be considered an issue provided that the purchase price reflects this.
I was really hoping that the current Mercedes C Class would have turned me into a Mercedes fan, but here I am a year later, back with BMW... it is a far better made car, the trim quality is far superior, it drives better, is faster, (and yes, I have tried the C32, fast, but still the same awful build quality), So its back to BMW for me!!
I know its early days with this particular car, but I have to say that I don't think I will be selling this one in a years time. I feel that we will have a long and pleasant relationship.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
