Nothing Touches It In It's Class

2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
This car is a joy to drive. The transmission is as smooth as butter, the acceleration is smooth and powerful and the ride has a magical quality to it that's hard to describe. The interior controls took some getting used to, but now are second nature. Every little corner of this car is engineered to perfection. Including the rechargeable flashlight in the glove box. My only (minor) gripe with the car has been the buzzing speakers in the door posts, that after three visits the dealer has been unable to fix.
Cruise controls and radio controls on steering. Rain sensitive winshield wipers. Ability to open and close windows and sunroof with key.
Climate control should have an automatic option. Features on the car should be programmable as in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Electrochromatic side mirrors would be a welcome addition. Front seats could be more comfortable, that is closer to the 5 series.
