I bought this car with 109K from a BMW dealership for commuting to work and hauling our Labradors. It has proven to be reliable, enjoyable to drive, relatively economical, and one of the best vehicles we've ever owned.
Combination of power and economy; has been very reliable so far; combines spirited handling and comfort in a way only BMW can; love the fold down rear seats with lift-up divider net for dogs. Very well designed inside and out.
Radio reception is terrible (upgraded to XM out of necessity); winter handling awful without snow tires, but that's to be expected.
