Your Quotes

“Super to drive, with good paintwork. I have minor quibbles on interior trim for a car this expensive. The tailgate isn't very robust either. Otherwise impressive.”

Mr Geoff Mee - Cheshire

“A good drive but not as practical as its size would imply; build quality also decidedly iffy.”

Mr Robin Hoggard - London

“Excelent but feel BMW let me down on the gearbox, as this is a sealed unit with a lifetime oil that never needs changed and the problem was it got dirty and needed. A new gearbox goodwill was applied for but was refused by BMW.”

Mr Brian Green - Surry

Manufacturer Verdict (Position - 7th)

Make no mistake, this is a good result for BMW. However, slipping two positions down the chart will cause some furrowed brows at the firm'’s HQ. What’'s more, the slide has put even more space between the blue propeller and its all-conquering Lexus rival. The main area where you say it needs to improve is in running costs –– 22nd place out of 37 shows you want your BMW to work harder for your money.
