By far this is a great car. I live in Orange County, CA, it's my 2nd lease of a 3-series. One thing that bothers me is the tires that BMW decided to put on these cars. They Bridgstone Turanza EL 42 Model RFT (Run Flat Tires), it comes standard on all BMW. I have about 600 miles on the car and just had a nail on of the tires. BMW dealer would not patch this and tires are not part of warranty. Costs about $300/tire to get a new one each time you have a bad luck running over a nail. In addition, they last only about 10,000 - 15,000 without mileage warranty from Bridgestone.
Nicer body style that he old one. The iPod integration is the nicest feature that this car has that others don't. Great horsepower and one touch folding side mirrors. The premium package is good value for the car, it's worth every penny.
Other that selecting better reviewed runflat tires or give us the option to get runflats or spare tire. The cupholders are small. The only one that big enough for regular travel coffee is in the center console that comes with temp control for you beverage. Still doesn't come with folding rear seats
