I wanted a car with the power and handling ability of a sports car. Yet, I wanted the comfort and room of a four door sedan. When it came time for me the buy a new car, I decided on the BMW 540ia (with the sports package).
I know the 540ia is not the most powerful, the fastest or the best handling car. And, I know that it might not have the most comfortable ride. However, I do think this is the best car overall, in one complete package.
The homelink garage door opener comes in handy. I like the rain sensing wiper. However, I have not had a chance to use it (I own two other cars and don't plan to drive this one in the rain). Also, I absolutely love the xenon headlights and the neat looking ring around the headlights.
The cupholder is useless. The windshield wiper control lever is a little too close to the steering wheel. The price of the car is very very high.
