2006 BMW 3 Series Touring Executive 320i from Netherlands
Steering pump gave up after just 8000km's.
Really great handling car, better than Audi A6 I am driving now. I would go for the 325i (or the 320d) if I had the choice again: the 320i just lacks a little bit of torque (the 320Si should be enough). Otherwise the engine is very smooth and picks up nicely from low rpm. Very fuel efficient too, I am a "sporty" driver and I still got 11 km's to the liter. Gear change is not very smooth, but was getting better as the car got more km's on it. Interior is roomy enough for family with 2 kids, the only thing missing are compartments to put things: there are virtually none. The dealership where I got the car, was not very interested in repairing the steering pump, so I took my business to another one. The arrogance of the BMW dealers is a bit annoying.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
