Bigger than I expected, though.
That's what she said last night!
Ha ha, not quite - she was looking at my belly!!
Yep, sadly, that's the one I get too.
She's still refusing to drive my BMW by the way. Her loss.

Her loss indeed.
My wife would happily drive our 1 series. Refused to drive our 3 series coupe (too big) and point blankly refuses the Subaru. I have pointed out that I bought the auto for her to use (manual clutch very heavy and her knees through sport play up). However, she thinks it's too fast and now, too long.....
My wife loved the 1er and it was not that different to the 3er just smaller.
There is a size theme here....hmmmm..
BTW, I got 49.5mpg from mine what are you getting in yours?
I'm now on all fours

I seem to be averaging about 47mpg which I think is pretty good as mine is an auto. I wasn't sure whether to get an auto or not but as it turned out I didn't really like the manual gear change (too heavy and clunky).
I could easily get better mpg but I've been enjoying it too much, especially the rwd traction which is just unbelievable after years of FWD.
Although she won't admit it, I think the reason my wife won't drive it is because she's worried she'll quite like it after years of saying she hates BMWs.
Not sure what happend there but Autocar had a hiccup!
Oh well my reply is lost.
My wife loved the 1er but it suprised me she would not drive the 3er.
Love the RWD traction although currently enjoying the 4WD traction presently - it drains the blood round corners I have got dizzy when really pushing hard hence 23mpg......
Just seen a Jag XF estate. It looked very nice and is sure to take sales from its German rivals.
Just noticed them being used by Team Sky at the Tour De France.
Just seen a new Aston Martin Zagato. Didn't like it.
Why not, out of interest?
I saw an Aston recently, and at first thought it was a Toyota... seems to have lost presence, somehow..
In fairness I only saw the rear as it went past me on the M40 but I just thought it looked a bit cheap, for an Aston. The round rear lights in a sort of trapezoidal recess also looked odd.
Aye - agreed - much the same for me and the one I saw. Shame.
Hahaha, but one day it may grow up into a beautiful swan (albeit still with a low iQ)
