“As space rockets go, the BMW goes well. But then it is more rocket than space – with seats in place there’s less luggage room than in the saloon. Yet there’s greater versatility and, seats down, it’s practical. The biggest attraction lies at the other end, though – a three-litre straight six that’s more addictive than chocolate and, depending on what you do with it, almost as entertaining. Fluid handling and a fine ride quality ensure that this is the top choice for keen drivers who need extra space occasionally. So if you need more space for the dogs and kids, sell them.”

Tracy Chapman

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove
