I have only driven 70 miles since collecting it! I have been using my old 535d saloon in this weather. I did take it out yesterday on the snow and ice on some local untreated roads and to my surprise it gripped really well. I was thinking about buying the Pirelli Sottozero winter tyres for these rims. I have Autosocks but not had a chance to try them yet.

Yep delighted with it, great drive and performance is fine after the 535d saloon. They are possibly not the prettiest car on the road but then BMW UK wouldn't be selling them with huge discounts if everyone liked them!

I was unsure on the looks when I first saw one on the road, but in typical BMW style they grow on you. My wife loves her GT and prefers it to her 2010 X5 she traded in for the GT.

I'm seeing a few more on the road in London now, there are 3 of us who all park in the same car park in W1. Really pleased with the way it drives (and looks). It was the deal that you got on your wife's that finally spurred me on to push the dealer for an equivilant deal on a "new" pre-reg car!

Try changing the springs. You'll love your car even more!

I picked up a 530d Msport last week, traded in an e70 X5.
Fantastic car to drive and so much more refined than the X5.

Nice looking car, I do like the MSport styling on the GT. I did look at the X5 as an alternative but I agree it is less refined and now due for an update plus the discount on the GT was huge.
