My expectations of this car have been
met. It's fun to drive and is the most
comfortable seat in the house. My bad
back hurts in just about everything
except my sport seats. I hate the
noise I now have from the tires that
started at about 10k miles and its
getting worse. Those low profile tires
aren’t all bad though helping turn-in
that makes me smile when I need a
little rush. I’m disappointed in
the “slipping clutch” of the A/T. The
upgraded sport steering wheel is
mainly plastic and it stares me in the
face. The in-cabin entertainment I
paid extra for could sound better and
have an in-dash changer.
Always ready when you want to play.
Solid construction leads to wonderful
turn-in and still has a very
comfortable ride. My last BMW had no
rattles out to 213k miles and I expect
the same from this one.
Re-design the dash. No plastic
steering wheels. Update the standard
and premium stereos. Give us some CD
storage space. Add sunshade extensions
to the visors. Include adjustable
lumbar support in sport seats too.
Xenon high beams too. Use black carpet
in all color interiors.
