I owned the car for two years. The warranty and maintenance plan will help you not worry about its bills. It is an engineering marvel, it shows unmatched performance. It is in a level no other car in it's class could match. On the negative side, the interior is poor and has no sense of luxury. especially the door panels. Anywyas, keep in mind when buying from BMW dealers, that BMW Financial services is such as disgusting company to buy from! If not really into the car, I'd suggest opting for Mercedes C class, on performance it falls much shorter than the Bimmer, but it has a nice interior, it's more comfortable and Mercedes dealers and MB Financial service know how to treat people well!
Brakes, Steering, Cornering capability, abundant grip, beautiful engine sound, more efficient than it's competitors and a true definition of a production driving machine and driving pleasure.
The interior needs a touch of luxury, especially the door panels. You can see the body color through the gap between the door when the doors are closed. The interior of this car is not in line with the excellence in rest of it.
