BMW — My test drive of a BMW Auto — a900ss

I recently had a BMW 520d SE on a 3 day extended drive and here are my thoughts.

To put a bit of to this, my company car is due for renewal and I had short listed a Merc E and a 5 for test drives. Unfortunately the E has now removed from my list so I wasn’t that keen, I to drive an Audi A S-Line as a to the BMW 5 series.

The report on the Audi A6 is

Anyway, the BM was delivered and had circa miles under its belt so was up nicely. Initial impressions on it away were underwhelming. I was a lot but it just felt a bit flat. It a bit faster than the Audi, a bit ride, a bit better handling but near what I was expecting. The car had a very lethargic feel to it.

I it up and did some research overnight.

The car was up with options and I believed it was fitted with variable As I couldn’t get that option, I left the car in comfort as I believed was as close as I could get to a standard

However, the button that from Sport to Comfort is It adjusts the weight of the steering, the response and the revs that the gearbox changes at. The car did NOT have the variable dampers.

Using button did make the car much Leave it in Comfort for most including motorways for a relaxing but a quick flick to Sport for or fast B road blasts and the car was better. Still a bit of a barge but it is a car and it you want total B road perhaps a 3 series is better

On the motorway, it was excellent. 80MPH was RPM in 8th gear and the car felt effortless. weight was heavier than the and had a nice feel to it. Wind was very low, lower the Audi for sure.

Inside, the BMW did feel smaller the Audi even though you did plenty of space but I felt the were not as comfortable as the Audi’s. BMW charge you if you want to add lumber which I think is a total in a car costing over Ј30k. All in all the BMW is an excellent mile muncher as I

B road thrills are there if you for the bulk of the car but it is not streets ahead of the by any means, slightly better, a bit….

Boot size goes to the Officially there is only 20 in it but the Audi is a more uniform so is more usable.

If you are paying own fuel, the BMW is significantly better the Audi (according to trip The Audi was about 40MPG, the BM 55MPG with 55MPG shown on an 80MPH motorway

So, decision time after 600 in the BMW and similar number in the Audi A6

I went into the Audi little but it over delivered. I into the BMW expecting a lot and it under Ultimately there is swings and of both cars but they end up as very good cars and are to separate.

I fully accept that people may say that the S-Line and the SE BMW are not fair comparisons and I should be the M Sport. Well they are the price to me from my lease so that is why they are being

The BMW is a slightly better driver and is economical (however as I have a card that is of no concern to The Audi has better equipment Nav, Sports seats lumber, better quality better stereo, Xenon’s) but heated seats and electric adjustment.

Whichever car I choose, I think I be satisfied.
