The car people forget until they have owned one!
The only thing relevant, is twice the car has refused to start. After leaving it for 20 minutes or so, it started.
Comfortable, Reliable and still looks good for it's age and mileage.
Rust free body work.
Easy to service engine and brakes.
2.0i Manual is not very fast, but good on motorway, Top speed 122mph.
Good mpg at 70mph.
Sharp handling with link suspension.
I've drove it from Glasgow to the south of Cornwall a few times and you don't feel that you had done over 500 miles with only stopping once for fuel.
It has more spec than most BMW's for it's year and I only paid £350 for mine and it's been the best car I've had to date for reliability and comfort.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
