Having been driving for almost 50 years and having owned over 20 cars in my life I now own my first BMW. I have been fighting this for years. I have always known BMW were great cars but have been put off by the running costs and , sorry people, being categorized as a BMW driver!!
Well the ED version of the 3 series has had such fantastic reviews I couldn't hold out any longer and anyway Audis have now taken over as the second most hated driver group (behind Range Rovers!!). I searched Autotrader on a regular basis and noticed quite a few low mileage EDs appearing on the market. Strangely they were all in black or silver. I now learn they were Olympic cars provided for officials and team managers. Now being released slowly onto the market.
Long and short is I got one at a bargain price but had to travel 100 miles to Kent. Its 2012 (12 reg) 3500 miles, silver, loaded with options. And most importantly does NOT have privacy glass which I hate.
Verdict. Best decision I ever made. Fabulous car, beautiful ride, 62 mpg so far. I should have bought one years ago!!
