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.”

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

“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.”
