I have had this car for about four
weeks; I bought used 2000 model with
57,700 mls. on it. I wanted a 540i,
but, couldn't really afford one
(without robbing Peter to pay Paul).
Car is extremely responsive, smooth,
handles superb; basically, everything I
expected it to be and more. There is
something to all the hype about BMWs.
It has been a dream of mine since I was
a teenager to own a BMW. I will
definately get another one when the
Handling, step-tronic shifting, quality
of interior, acceleration (I drove the
328; not sure it justifies the price),
the fact I can throw it into a turn
without second guessing myself.
Since it's an entry level model, the
only option I would have made standard
is heated seats. We don't buy these
cars for the cup-holders, people!! If
you want cup-holders, buy an SUV.
