A big step up!

Great car! Looks great. Drives great and is scary fast. Very smooth so you have to keep an eye on speed. Mileage is about as expected (21 mpg overall so far). Compared to Caddy CTS, Infiniti G37, Audi A4, Acura TL. For driving feel and fun, BMW wins easily (G37 is closest). Had trouble with sun visor pulling out of headliner, which is now fixed. Also got a flat tire on way home from the dealership - run flats came in handy! The AWD seems to work well, but the tire grip in snow/slush/ice is not great. Overall, and expensive purchase, but I have absolutely no regrets.
Engine, drive feel and performance are awesome! Heated seats and steering wheel (heat up VERY fast); folding side mirrors (nice in tight garage); overall, a great ride.
I haven't hooked up Bluetooth yet, but have been told to be careful to use approved phones only - however, the list of phones is short and outdated. Broken sun visor was frustrating.
