A mate had one (520d) last week as a loaner while his 3 was in the garage. It was smooth, pulled well on the motorway and was quiet. Really nice car.
Astra mk3 estate
The official car of the Scalford hi fi show 9 years running.
All good stories start with that.
Audi for me.
From your shortlist I would take the BMW.
Not tried one yet. Will sniff one out.
BMW is more interesting to drive, but get the M-Sport version as the non-M-Sport is floppy and sluggish.
My personal choice would be the Merc, as I prefer Mercs, they are more comfortable, bigger inside, quieter, dealers are better and have more gadgets. The BMW will be more economical, I am getting 48mpg on my C220 Estate, where as my old 320d got 51MPG. You will arrive less stressed in a Merc.
Audi, yeah right, A6 pants.
I really liked the Volvo XC60 I drove recently, nice car. But obviously a very complicated seat adjuster that only a few can handle
People will let you out of junctions in a Merc
An old Lexus.
It would be an offence to Alfas to turn up to a golfist establishment in one.
He’s not made of money you know!
New drugs not working then?
You do know that’s just a glorified trim level now?
Different suspension and steering.
Well spotted - rougher ride and twitchier handling too, but no extra grunt. Bargain
If you get the adaptive suspension (mandatory, IMO) then there the same.
Have you tried asking for more sexual intercourse?
