    My car

    The two-litre diesel is underpowered for the 5 series, however it's frugal and gave me over 500 miles on one tank. There is hesitation in first gear and appropriate torque when you're travelling over 40mph. Mid-bend bumps won't ruffle the ride too much and the 5 remains composed. My nephew found the interior boot release button by sitting in the front driver's footwell!
