It was fantastic to drive and seems like it'll be an ideal family car. Really looking forward to it.

It's only a 520d (going frugal for the new thing we spoke about) but feels sprightly and certainly not underpowered.

I love it so much. I'd buy another if I could afford it. You should probably get one too.


Amazing how things change - I hate these cars now and think they're quite shit. Mine's been nothing but trouble this year and I'll be glad to be shot of it on Friday.


How sadly predictable.

My mate has the saloon. Don't know what engine but the car is very big!
My other mate has a 2007 750il and we parked them next to each other and they were the same length!!

I dreaded going to a 2L diesel but tbh living in the SE it's plenty quick enough.

After spending a week driving a Disco 4, Mr Clown is now considering chopping in the M3 for one. :D
