  • So the moral of the story is: buy a BMW 335i twin turbo petrol (which is faster) & 50k cheaper, then use the spare 50k saving to also buy a house. (deposit)

  • BMW naming went out the window with the addition of a turbo. It used to be easy, 1st number was the series, 2nd and 3rd were the engine size. Now with the turbo, their cars are named so that it makes the same power as whatever 2nd and 3rd digit are on a N/A BMW. 50k is what I payed on my car, and I got all of the options you had from a different manufacturer. The only thing I am missing is the rear seats and estate (very small trunk). After testing a similar spec BMW, mine has slightly better comfort. I don't get nearly the MPG though. Bet you could never guess what my car was. Chevy Camaro

    • @Do One I was expecting it to last at least the 2 years of warranty but that is to much of an expectation with a company like BMW. My honest opinion is obvious, BMW is BY FAR the worst Car company in the world.

  • 8:18 what you said is soooo wrong. If a car can do everything it's not boring it's the best car or one of the best. I know you didn't say boring like not fun but still saying that car that has v8 petrol engine is boring in any way while sitting in a diesel with half the power i know that m340d is really fun doesn't matter if it's diesel or gas they are both fun but it kinda sounds wrong for somebody else listening. Compare it to s4 or rs4. You all were screaming and laughing in rs6 and now you are saying that.

  • Great review Ethan! I am a proud owner of the new BMW 320d Touring and it is the perfect car, despite having a far inferior engine to the one reviewed. The clincher for me was the double cheese grater which comes standard on all models, unlike the indicators which I paid an extra £1500 for in the courtesy pack.

    SalesDrivenSalesDrivenMese fa
  • I think we should have Ethan review an older car, maybe one he owns, so it doesn't matter if what he says is completely wrong. He should do it alone. Then Alex reviews the same car so we can see the difference.

    • @Do One I cannot argue with (and wasn't talking about) reliability and quality but horrid looks? This alongside a current 5-series is the most bimmerish looking bimmer in the lineup and has reasonable sized kidney grille. You might not like the looks and I cannot argue with that either but if the new 3-series is 'horrid', what would be the words to describe X6, new 7 or the GT models? 😂

  • Easy review really, as you would expect from a modern BMW it's incredibly ugly, it's a diesel so it will shortly be banned from most towns and cities. 19" wheels with low profile tyres so the ride will be harsh and uncomfortable and you will need new tyres and rims every other pothole. Leather seats which will, naturally be heated to try and disguise how cold they are in winter, although they will still be uncomfortably hot and sweaty in the summer. Whilst I would normally recommend that a far more comfortable and durable cloth seat be specified as a white trim is fitted, leather (or more likely a vegan friendly alternative) will better survive the constant cleaning it will need. Price is £ ludicrous even before any overpriced options are fitted ensuring this car will depreciate faster than warp factor 10. Performance and handling are impressive, if you ever find an open road. You can look forward to reliability ratings second only to Land Rover so big repair bills are to be expected. Despite being fitted with a wheel and tyre combo which vulnerable to potholes, doubtless no spare tyre will be provided so you will have plenty of time to read war and peace whilst waiting for a tow to nearest Tyre shop. A tyre shop which will have you over a barrel and be able to charge you top £ for the cheapest budget tyre. To sum up If you like throwing money into a bottomless pit and enjoy driving like a d***h*** this is the car for you. on the plus side it is a car not a fancy farm truck. If you have more sense but still want a BMW buy yourself an E30, the last BMW worth buying. AS I'm sure Alex would agree.

  • I thought I recognised those roads! Should have dropped down into Watlington, I'd have let you drive the FD! There is a really nice back road hill climb from junction 6 of the m40 up to Stokenchurch that you guys should check out if you haven't. Its double width on the way up so no getting stuck behind cyclists.
