The story of the F30 looks more like that of a man, rather than a car's tale: now that he's passed 35 years of age (he's now 37) he has completed another evolutionary stage that allows him to be more refined. He not only has better skills, but is now a complete man, one that can take care of all aspects of life.
Mr. Three was always the sporty type and now he's dedicating more time to his body than ever, with the result being an appearance that a synonym for masculinity. "Well dressed" is a perfect description, one that will probably be given to you by the many heads that he turns when he's out in the city.
Those who get to know him closer receive a confirmation of what was already known: He is a true athlete and will impress you with his physical abilities. However, he knows how to adapt to every situation and fits in perfectly in the current financial-sensitive era, being extremely frugal.
No, Mister 3er isn't perfect. He's just very good. In other words, he impresses through the good overall package that he delivers, but doesn't actually manage to dazzle you with a certain asset.
He's the type that wins thanks to points, not KOs and sometimes in life you want that extra bit. Of course, this is true for his 320d personality, with his more powerful alter egos certainly set to offer a different experience. but, of course, not with the same efficiency.
He also has a dark side, one that can't be ignored: the pricing. When he visited us for a test, he came with a price tag of a little under EUR63,000 (about USD83,600). However, around 40 percent of that money went into the optional goodies and while you do need certain features when buying a premium car, not all of them were necessary. Then, there's the comparison with its competitors, where he gets a good rating, as there are more expensive premium models, none of which is superior.
What the F30 320d actually does is offer you all you need in terms of transportation on the road, with some added spice. Anything else you would like and that would require buying a superior car, can be called a caprice. People will drive this car for a lot of miles, thanks to its frugality, dynamics and comfort.Continue reading
