    • @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.

    HurleyHurley3 päeva tagasi
    • No, they are talking nonsense as usual. Fully comp covers you 3rd party on other cars. What it is is bmw are shilling them so the bmw will be under a strict 1driver policy. Bmw marketing are in desperate mode just now as the company is dying, they are doing what they done with s1000rr motorbike and giving them out willy nilly to reviewers so they shill for them in the vids. Incase you didn't know the s1000rr is diabolically unreliable in bike terms but none of the review sites acknowledged them blowing engines at under 20k miles and continued to hyper promote them while the average biker knew how bad a bike they were. They don't even have a tenth of the reliability of Yamaha

  • 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.

    • You know as well as we all do that your car is diabolically bad. Quit lying man you bought a turd with the worst engine in the last decade

      Do OneDo One6 tundi tagasi
  • 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.

    Piotr CichoszPiotr Cichosz5 päeva tagasi
    • @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? 😂

      Piotr CichoszPiotr Cichosz2 päeva tagasi
    • 🤣🤣😂 what the junk b58 that pisses oil and coolant everywhere and horrific orange peel paint jobs combined with biblical unreliability and horrid looks. Yeah mate bmw nailed it if it's a competition to see who's worse than British Leyland

  • 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.

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.
