This week's car review is all about the contrasting fortunes of two BMW drivers: one who has a way of maximising the model's technological benefits, the other (me) at a loss to do so.

The owner/driver thought her car was among some of the better things since the invention of sliced bread, whereas I thought there was half a loaf already missing from its on-test equivalent.

And the latter is all (well, mainly) the government's fault. That's my opinion; I am sticking with it. I'll explain later.
