    My car

    Recently purchaased this car to replace the beloved RX8. As yet I am not missing the RX too much due to the great hadling and fantastic build quality the BMW is offering. Although not quick, the 320 is smooth, and I have the auto box with steptronic (I would now recomend this to anyone as it gives the best of both Worlds, and allows my Wife not to worry about gears/stalling etc). I really like the firm ride of the Msport, and my car has 11k without a single rattle or squeak! Although petrol quiter, should have gone for diesel. Getting circa 30mpg.

    My car

    handling and performance is great, idrive ok after familiarisasion period. Interia both comfortable and practicable with all controls easy to use. would be a superb ride if not fitted with run flat tyres, these can be possitively scarey when driving through tram lined roads. unfortunately cracked a windscreen after just a week of ownership. now the fourth bmw I have owned that has cracked a screen within a month of purchase

    My car

    I have had 3 Series BMWs as a company car since 1987 changing every 3 years. Apart from the odd bulb going, I have never had any faults or failures of any kind.

    I am on my 3rd Tourer, which is a 2003 320d M Sport and has now done 77K. It is still as tight as the day I got it with no rattles or creaks of any kind. It still drives superbly with fantastic MPG which is great as I do a lot of driving abroad during holidays.

    My only comment is that for the money it is a small car but that is offset really by the BMW build quality and reliability. But hey, you get whats you pay for. I am due to change the car and will almost certainly get another Tourer, probably an SE as the company car tax starts getting expensive on the more expensive models.

    My car

    I am very impressed with my 320d M Sport Touring. Early days for me but I am pleased with the car. Build quality is excellent, it feels very well put together, it is economical and great to look at. The dealer service was second to none, my second BMW from my local dealer in the South Lakes (Bateman BMW) - the first being a 2004 (54) 530i saloon. I would recommend this dealership to anyone considering a BMW purchase.

    The engine feels smooth, it pulls well from low revs and the driving position is perfect, I look forward to many motorway miles in it. The interior oozes quality. I considered the petrol 320 but this car is worth the extra money.
