    What does this car say about you?

    I love cars.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They all love the styling. Women think looks beautiful. Men drool at the engine noise.

    Would you buy this car again and why?


    What are you likely to buy next?

    Probably a BMW E93, because I really want to own a BMW at some point, and it has more or less everything I already love about my Eos.

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    May 2013

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes, it was £14k, included 2 years servicing and warranty, a 3.6 v6 Individual with stunning interior. But the real breaker was it only had 12k on the clock!!

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    My original 3 desires for a new car were: hardtop convertible, heated seats, not FWD. Budget wouldn't allow for a BMW E93 I would have been truly happy with, so when a salesman pointed this out - I leaped at the chance!

    What was the dealer like?

    Very helpful and knowledgeable.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Amazing. Goes like a train, the DSG makes it a delight - switching between Drive and Sports is like changing cars - its a animal one minute and a polite, refined gliding machinethe next.

    What's it like to park?

    Optical parking, auto-drop mirror... need i say more?

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Not yet.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Four adult sized seats.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Did I mention the roof folds into the boot? ;) The Individual trim means it is FULLY equipped. Two-tone leather interior is beutifully crafted. The additional options like folding mirrors and Dynamic Chassis Control that only come with the 3.6 are very cool.
