BMW F31 330d Touring 2-month Review

After testing the new 3 Series Touring, the guys from CAR Magazine were so impressed that they even declared it the best car in the real world. That wasn't the only aftermath of that test drive though.

They went even further and bought one of these for their CAR fleet. Now, two months after purchasing a BMW F31 330d Touring, CAR editor Chris Chillton talks about the experience of using such a car on a daily basis.

If at first, he was rather worried that he should've gone for the Audi RS4, now he's more than happy with his choice. The ride and steering is so much better, whilst the 258 HP and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque will definitely provide enough adrenaline for a true BMW fan.

The car does perfectly on snowy roads too, helped by the ever-good 8-Speed ZF gearbox that's hooked up to that 3-liter diesel. The only problem is the low-revving character of any diesel that will force you to shift gear whilst drifting but that doesn't matter that much, when you consider all the other advantages this car has.

Bottom line, the 330d Touring is one amazing car. In the words of Chris himself, the car is "bliss" to drive and own. Enough said!
