56-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

The Wife and i bought a BMW 330d Msport touring in March last year. My father in-law has been into BMW's for many years and this influenced our decision when our Nissan micra was written off at the end of 2008. The performance is effortless, i have not once needed to rev the engine past 3000RPM due to the huge torque available. my one critisim of the auto box is that i've been caught out at a roundabout when the auto box was in too higher gear to give me the acceleration i needed to get into a gap. I think ultimately it was my fault with not familiarising myself with the car but it was still a scary experience. kick down also seems to take an age to happen and the traction control can also be a nightmare. If you pull away too quickly at a junction and it detects wheelspin it will cut you power for what seems like an age, probably only about 500mS but when a lorry is driving towards you at speed it can be quite disconcerting. Tyres are very expensive but i'm a firm believer in getting what you pay for and a 1700KGs car capable of 155mph plus means budget tyres are a strict no-no. Overall it manages 48MPG on a run, 38MPG around town, gets to 60 in around 6.5secs, cruises at the legal limit at 1750rpm, is totally practical being a touring model and looks very mean! The best all round car? i certainly think so!

With only owning the f30 for 4 months, we couldn't mention the vehicle's long-term reliability, but for the 9500mls it's covered over that short time, it hasn't missed a beat in any aspect, and we went to town on the options list so there's plenty to go wrong! I have the car on a full maintenance contract with my bmw dealership through my company so I don't see the servicing costs personally.thankfully, it's frugal on oil - using absolutely nothing from delivery to 9500mls which is good as buying 1l of the correct oil is getting on for ł20! fuel? catastrophically expensive as I'm sure all road users can appreciate. 38mpg is okay but I was really looking for 42-44mpg as advertised, so that's a disappointment coming from an e90 lci 330d which achieved 46mpg when pushing it!

57-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

The car itself is fine, but the run-flat tyres are awful, expensive, unrepairable, and wear quickly. The car has no grip whatsoever on slippery surfaces, despite traction control. Dealer service can be good but is too expensive, and they schedule brake fluid changes too soon. The turbo-diesel engine is generally good, but torque at very low revs is poorer than many similar engines making the car easy to stall when pulling away. I also don't like the six speed gearbox, it's too easy to get reverse instead of first, it needs a detent catch rather than a spring which can be easily over-ridden.

Just before the we were going to change the car, after 3 years, a catastrophic failure of the suspension, dsc and various other components occurred. This meant it swayed around on the road when accelerating or turning. I don't know whether it may have been caused by the excessive spinning it went through with all the snow recently, but it shows how delicate this BMW car is, if so. So I've have never got it fixed; its sitting outside while I am currently hiring a Mercedes for a month before I take delivery of my new Mercedes e class coupe.

My March 2005 Series 3 2.5i M sport Coupe was a great buy at the time having done less than 6k in 15 months. I needed and Automatic due to having a stroke and wanted something sporty. The two door coupe is ok most of the time but a bit of a problem at times.Sports suspesion is a little stiff around town(maybe the would have been betterto have the SE) but a beauty cruising.As most of its life is in town so the 2.5 litre's mpg was ok and is now becoming a bit expensive so a 2.0 litre 4 door with SE suspension is now being sort

1995-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

The car's reliability is quite good, only let me down a couple of times in over 2 years. there are a few problems with it, but it's mostly age related, like door seals giving up, a bit of rust on electrical connections, nothing major. engine is perfect, runs like a dream. suspension is something you want to look out for, especially the rear springs, which tend to crack. The fuel economy could be better, but in the end it's a 2 litre 6 cylinder engine, so you can't really expect much when it comes to fuel economy.

All in all it is a superb vehicle. The 2.0D efficient dynamics engine is fast and extremely economical. Despite regular 3 hour journeys in the car I have not once experienced aches and pains so comfort is top notch too. It did suffer from an electrical problem however - the electronic steering lock sensor malfunctioned but it did not affect the car in any way and was replaced quickly and without hassle. Would I buy another? I don't think I would look at anything else.

Regulary gets 45mpg driving the 7 miles to work and back on town roads. 50mpg + on a run on the motorway. managed to get it just under 40mpg after some spirited driving around the yorkshire dales. parts cheaper from indy garage. servicing etc also reasonable from indy garages.

I have never had to return this car to the dealer for any attention whatsoever thus making it maintenance free hence 5 out of 5. Tax at ł475 a year is costly, tyres are also costly and petrol at 21 mpg is also costly. however the car does not do a lot of miles therefore I can justify it for the rewards. huge fun car, very rapid and also comfortable for an m car.......first class I would say.

07-reg Diesel, Owner for Less than a year

As good as i expected. I don't like the leather seats - alcantara is so much better and more comfortable - and the fuel consumption is less than I expected - 34-37mpg, which is not great for a 2 litre diesel. Traction in snow/ice is dreadful - I can't even get out of my car park. Build quality is good and appearance better than average.
Altogether, a good car, but not the best.

My car is a convertible hence it suffers from and/or benefits from the associated design constraints.

The only problems I've had are the folding hood failed once (repaired under the dealers used car warranty), and oil consumption is high (though within spec according to BMW).

Overall, I'm very pleased with it although it is more expensive to run than I expected.

The cars over sensitive ecu system can be annoying, as you need a diagnostic check for peace of mind and to clear the warning light.
