Arrived yesterday and must say been enjoying it - nice bit of headroom compared to the 1-series. Kids like it too - good spec levels (need to check whats standard and whats not) Has some grunt and seems to be pretty frugal.

Full review coming later.

Was quite keen on this, looks great on paper - economy, weight, std kit

Look forward to seeing the full review, particularly interested in how it handles generally, but also on the broken, potholed edges of B roads, suchas my daily commute. Also, what real world economy you get.

There's a bit of fuss in Australia about the DPF cycle leaking diesel fuel into the oil and consequently overfilling the oil. Changes to the DPF cycle (ECU flash) and the dip stick (moving the mark further up? not a joke, but not certain either) should 'fix' the 'problem'...
