Great car – balanced, precise, sheer driving pleasure. Except at the petrol pump where enthusiastic driving will leave your wallet crippled.
And let’s be honest, the E92 (BMW 3-Series Coupe) chassis is no Prius – it engages you, makes you want to go faster, harder, smoother. It makes any ham-fisted oaf look like Michael Schumacher; it inspires confidence without overpowering the chassis.
The auto gearbox is good – quick shifts comparatively (it’s no DSG), smooth and easy to live with.
If you want a beautiful car that’s easy to live with, I don’t think you can go wrong.
As always, do your due diligence. Any E92 owner will generally be enthusiastic about driving and their car – most are well looked after. Grab a bargain.
