I Love My BMW
Added: 11th of October 2016
Purchased my BMW 325ci Sport new in March 2004, built to loaded spec, having previously had new Mercedes 190E's and C Class (and even a Mitsubishi 2.5 Galant) over the previous years. Its very well built, finished and a joy to drive, it gives a more "driver's feel" than my previous Mercedes' which although all were excellent cars, didn't make me want to jump in and take a drive to "fetch a loaf of bread and some milk". Oddly, I didn't take any of the options of driving like a lunatic, inoperative indicators or blocking cars coming from streets on the left which it seems a lot of BMW drivers get blamed with. I did get the air of satisfaction of driving a really nice, reliable (touch wood) car which I'm very proud of. Although, its fairly expensive to run (road tax especially) the insurance is generally around £300 PA (I'm 63 years old with full protected NCD living in SE) and its not too hot on short runs for MPG (I can get 38+MPG on a decent run always keeping within speed limits) its still a joy to own.
