Beemer equipment at a fraction of the price
The airconditioner needed a recharge.
The brakes rubbed when the car was turned on full lock.
Warn rear discs.
The car is as solid as a rock on the road. There is very little body roll on corners.
The seats are supportive and comfortable and everything on the dashboard is easily reached.
The car can be cornered at high speeds and it doesn't sway or squeal at all.
The stereo is great and the 12 stack CD player is a great extra.
The motor whistles at higher revs when overtaking which makes people think the car is fitted with a turbo! The car has very slow take-off because the motor has to overcome the extra weight of the Ghia equipment (seat hydraulics etc), but after about 4000 revs it really starts to take off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
