NY Road test with 328Xi-good idea?

Guys, I have a road test coming up and wanted to bring my own car for the test.
Is it a good idea to bring 328Xi for the road test? I'm 5'6'' and looking over my shoulders on both sides doesn't seem to be an issue since I check my mirrors in conjunction (not the mirror only).

I passed my test in CA on 2nd attempt and wasn't as much concerned as I am for NY road test. Any specifics, someone want to share?

No We don't have anything to share! You get to fail on the first try like the rest of us lol. I'm joking.

Honestly they are looking at your ability to drive the car. Hands on 10 & 3. Practice your 3 point Turns (This is automatic fail) Maintain your speed limits. Oh and yes Parallel Park, practice that.

Good luck!

I drove a 2004 Mercedes ML350 (1st gen) for my road test in NYC. That was a few years ago, still feels like it was yesterday. You'll be fine in a 328i.

If you are used to driving it, you should be fine with your 328i xDrive.

My only advice is just make sure it's running safe and good, and get a good nights sleep before hand.

My advice is to jack off the night before so you don't have the urge to do it during the road test.

This. It is much easier to take the test in a car you are used to driving.

I went to driver's ed before getting my license. We used one car for all of the driving lessons. When I got to the test, they had a completely different car I had never driven or seen before. It wasn't too much of an issue, but I probably looked a bit dumb fumbling around for the mirror and seat adjustments.
