Better to 'go ugly' and get an S-Drive X1 with the same engine but more basic, less "disco" interior and save £5k or more. Plus it rides more softly on the standard 17"s.

At last!!! A review of a new BMW which doesn't contradict the 'first drive' from a few weeks ago...

It must be a good car because all he can really fault is non standard lumbar support and fidly seat adjustments...i can't wait for a go in one next week :-)

[quote julianphillips]disco" interior[/quote] oh come on...we all like a bit of a disco don't we??!!!

personally, i like the interior. the one i sat in 2 weeks ago at the launch had the 'disco' red stripe across the dash and very nice it was too!

I think this is the best all-round car for so many people, most of the time! Would love to test-drive one!

No thanks this 320 is quite ugly enough both inside and out to scare me away from my local BMW dealership. Shame about the looks as no doubt a fine car underneath.

120g CO2 and 7.5s 0-62 - wow!

I really like the headlamp/grille arrangement on this 3 series, I think its one of BMWs best at the moment. Considering how closely together they were released its a shame they didn't try harder and do something similar with the 1 series, the front end of the latter looks like a complete rush job

Looks are a totally subjective il sole and each to his own, but personally I think the c class, A4 and S60 are all far more appealing than the 3 series.

Volvo S80, the design is now 6 years old and still looks fresh, and IMO from certain angles the new 5 series is very similar
