This is our fourth new BMW in the last three years. There have been several things that have made us glad that our time with this car is coming to an end. It is a stunningly beautiful car, but that hasn't overcome the transmission that doesn't shift properly, or the run flat tires that have to be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles due to excessive noise, or the unexplained occasional electronic gremlins that show up and can't be diagnosed.
Beautiful, both on the outside and inside. Great fuel mileage. Handles wet roads masterfully.
Get rid of the run flat tires (at least make standard tires available). Improve the upshift and downshift points to make them more tolerable in the steptronic transmission. My dealer keeps telling me that there is no software update available to improve the problem with the transmission in our car.
