Wonderful design, with a lot of power. The seats are uncomfortable, and the ride is rough over NYC streets. It is not built for long rides. The windows rattle & the radio is not good. I think that the engine is too powerful for the size of the car. I find that driver must fight to harness the power, only very experienced drivers should drive the car. The car makes interior noises as it rides over rough roads. The car burns gas (22 hwy & 16 city) & it burns oil. I have had to bring the car into BMW service three times to have oil added in the first 7K miles. I test drove the BMW 328i coupe & I should have paid the difference for a better car.
Great styling, good brakes, corner well, BMW 4yr/50,000 mile free service (you will need it), BMW Assist, Bluetooth for cell phones, IPOD friendly
More comfortable seats, better interior & ride quality, better gas mileage & solve oil burning problem, slightly bigger car.
