Pros : Great car far superior to the one it replaced

Cons : optional extras expensive


Look and Style: Less sporty looking than its predecessor, but wears its new corporate face extremely well, almost identical to its bigger sister 7 series, borrows interior cabin features from 7! Feels more like down-sized 7 series than down-graded7. Comfort: Ride comfort is great, strides motorways with ease with vey low wind noise, road noise is much less than previous model (run flat tyres are not the most comfortable, I prefer normal high performance tyres) Pickup: 0 - 62 mph (0 -100 kmph) in 6.3 seconds very impressive for 3 litre single turbo diesel engine. Top speed limited to 155 mph in true BMW tradition. Mileage: vastly improved, 70 litre tank with range over 1000 kms! Best Features: Impressive performance & fuel economy. The corporate look. Cabin put together with almost forensic precision! Needs to improve: Option packs are expensive. For true BMW die hard fans ride feel bit softer (may wish spare few more quids for 'Dynamic Package') Overall Experience: Last 5 was best executive saloon on market, new model got even better. Leaves new E class and A6 well behind in its wake. Had it for over 5 months, enjoyed every moment of driving it, very easy to live with.

    dear sir , how much cost for an oil change. there are a lot of complaints about its mechanical parts. poor service. looks like a less expensive car when compared to A6. is it worth for 500000k. please give an advice.
