Certainly a record for me. In the space of 10 days I've had the following
cars as either loaners, for test drives or borrowed from family plus my own
M3 which finally gone.
X5 3.0d Sport
Mini Cooper S
Porsche Boxster S
Merc 350 SL
Nissan Warrior (!!?)
Z4 3.0 Coupe and Z4M roadster (15 minutes each only)
X5 3.0d Sport (same one again)
Most fun was the 130M... plenty of power but felt very secure and planted.
Z4 3.0 Coupe was under very strict supervision and Z4M even more so and only
for about 10 miles each. Most suprising was the X3 2.0d which was a very
nice car to drive with adequate power, aircon was scarily cold though!
Now waiting for an X5 to replace my M3 on Thursday.
Only driven the frst one. Rather waddly handling (compared to my equivalent
740i saloon). I suspect the perfomance will be a bit staid on any but the
4.4. OTOH 4.4 will be very thirsty. And you wouldn't want to scratch one
of these by taking it off road.
Nice, bit impracticable, but a lovely car for touring in the country in the
Should be good, but a bit small.
Originally designed to be driven around battlefields at relatively low
speed, short life and essentially disposable. The current model continues
to fulfill these requirements.
