BMW Z3 1.9
Advantages: Comfort, price
Disadvantages: long bonnet until you are used to it
I have recently purchased a 1.9L BMW Z3, and I love it, its reasonably old being an S reg but cost just under four thousand pounds. To begin with i found the bonnet a little too long (I previously had a corsa). This caused me to be worried about driving at night as i didn't feel the road was as well lit. However, i have now had the car three months and i am so pleased i bought it. The miles to the gallon are much better than i expected, i am used to driving at night and it no longer causes me stress. I have had no problems and although its done nearly 90000 miles and has had 4 previous owners it seems to drive better than my friends brand new MX5. The boot space isn't bad either. I am a bit of a shopaholic and i have never been unable to fit all my purchases in the boot. My partner and i have also been camping in it, it was a bit of a squeeze but not really a problem. It drives beautifully and is so comfortable to drive. I am not the most experienced driver, this being about the 6th car i've ever driven. But i would definitely recommend it.
Summary: overall lovely car, just takes a bit of getting used to if you had a small car before.
