Good, but needs attention in some areas
The auto transmission had to be re-programmed soon after delivery, as it was shunting badly when the car slowed down for stops.
There is now a squeak developing on the driver's side rear door when opening/closing, and a minor rattle coming from somewhere around the front passenger door or dash.
Nice, handy size, adequately roomy.
Decent fuel economy, good performance: economy balance.
Down sides are a gruff engine note under fierce acceleration, a knobbly ride on the run-flat tyres (BMW, when are you going to get this right, as you've had so many years trying to now?) and interior plastics that would disgrace low end economy cars, let along one wearing the blue and white roundel badge.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
