Amazing versatile family car with premium badge

As my heading says, this is a amazing car. The fact I’m driving a seven 7 German car for the price c4 Picasso.
Picked the 218 petrol with 1.5 petrol engine. Great to drive and fun , torque in all the right places. Doesn’t feel like a mpv to drive.Fuel economy could be better, 37mpg average, 40ish on journeys.
Interior is great, standard sat nav plus feels quite upmarket. My sport model has red ambient lighting which is really smart. Seating is good, a bit narrower than my old Peugeot 5008 but It suits my needs. Got 2 young boys so interior takes a pounding but it’s hard wearing. The 2 rear seats are small and used occasionally when transporting grandparents, fits the boys perfectly. The boot with the seats down is bigger than a 3series touring, comes in handy for transporting football gear for the kids.
Pros - great to drive, practical, upmarket.
Cons- not really any but .............. it didn’t really drive that well in the snow( even though it’s front wheel drive) sorted that out with snow tyres( bit extreme but it worked)
Window washers stopped working, seems to be common problem with bmws. Apparently wrong washer fluid messes up filter or blocks the pipes???
