I really like the carwow reviews.

I was a little worried I'd feel like i made the wrong choice when ordering the g30 rather than g31. (I've had e61 and f31) I do love the versatility of the tourings and thought my ones looked better than the saloons. But with this one I really think the saloon looks nicer. Also I reckon I'll keep the e61 for rough use etc so works out.

Looks much better than the saloon imo. Still not 100% convinced on the front end though.

Good review, this geezer is alright

Same here.

Seen a few G30 models out on the road, feel the grilles are far too big.

Not had the chance to walk around one yet, but I'm not convinced on the proportions of the front.

I have to laugh at the audible rattle sound when he closes the driver's door. My e39 doesn't do that.

Even though I'm not into newer BMWs, the wagon looks much better than the sedan.

Same. They are pretty much the only reviews I watch just for fun.
