Simply couldn't resist it and, at £34k off list, it was an offer I couldn't refuse:

Can't begin to understand why anyone would pay over £900 for a car TV and I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to try the Park Assist, but it's one hell of a lot of car for the money and, after 1k+ miles, I thoroughly delighted.
The handling is superb - like a compliant version of my old E92 330d M Sport, but with none of the crashing. The steering, being electric, hasn't got quite the same degree of feedback, but it's a vast improvement on my 535d.
And as for the sublime 6 cyl petrol - what an engine...
