A car I shared with my
girlfriend Beth, bought as a tow car for the Caterham. We
were intending to buy either a Fiat Coupe again or a Celica
190 (again!) as both would tow the Caterham, however driving
the BMW really impressed us.
It is a great car for
long distance towing, the cruise control happily towing the
trailer and Seven at 60mph up and down any hill in top gear.
We have driven it on track at North Weald, where it was
better than we thought for a heavy car. It spins up the
inside wheel, but will get the back out with enough right
foot. The traction and stability control has to be turned
off though, or you get no fun. It's not a car that makes me
want to drive quickly, but it serves it's intended purpose.
We sold the 330D in late 2010 in readiness for a VW Caravelle
which we bought for our summer holiday and then sold on.
