2006 BMW 3 Series 330xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
My 1st Bimmer & due to RFT's, my last. I enjoy driving long distances on week-ends & wanted to experience the ultimate driving experience after 20 yrs w/ Audis. I liked the power and pep, but it's not my preferred ride in wet or snowy roads. The RFT's are nice but the ride is so rough on less than perfect roads, it outweighs everything else. Dissatisfaction shows: 24K miles after 4 years. I use non-RFT's now w/ a jack & spare, w/c BMW does not offer, until trade-in time. Bottom line: too much money for mediocre design/planning, arrogant & unfriendly customer service.
Active cruise control on long drives.
Option for non-RFT's in lieu of RFT's w/room for spare+jack; smoother manual transmission; customer-friendly service/response. More convenient locations for cupholders.
