August 31, 2007 marked the 7th anniversary for my ownership of this solid machine. Bose sound system is unsurpassed. Smooth ride, far more superior than the 2005 330BMW xi. Paramount level of precise engineering when it comes to areodynamics...the car basicall hugs the road. I only replaced tires once, battery once, transmission fluid once, brake fluid once, and periodic oil change. That's it. Make sure to read the owner's manual and not to go about replacing stuff that are not listed.
Bose system with subwoofer, interior design, leather arrangement, TCS, independent suspension that works, Tiptronic, and "mean" look.
CD-R or CD-WR player (back in 2000 these cds were close to unknown anyway) with 6-disc, less protruding alloy wheels. A little more fuel economy without compromising torque.
