I downgraded from a 2005 BMW 5-Series sedan because I needed a cheaper ride at this point in my life. This car is handsome, well built, and chock full of extras that cost at least $10K in the BMW 328xi that I was considering.
Blue Tooth, comfortable heated seats, seats, lumbar support, heated side view mirrors, nice fit and finish, HID headlights, attractive styling.
Trunk is a little small, ditch the cassette tape player, brighten up the steering wheel controls for night driving, line the side pockets to eliminate the rattles, and design a key fob that is smaller and doesn't resemble a switch blade! Could use AWD and a softer ride.
