    My car

    I took delivery in Jan 2008 and can honestly say that this is a superb car to drive. BMW have underestimated that fuel consumption figures. I recently drove from Cardiff to Reading and at approx 68MPH averaged for the journey 65.7MPG and to prove it I took photo's on my Blackberry. My previous car was an A4 Avant Sport TDI but even the boot on the Beamer has more space. It is sprightly enough with the 141bhp and more than holds its own with other makes on 150bhp. to top it all I was paying £228 in kind on the tax. The Beamer is £80 a month with its frugal CO2 emissions.
