After the birth of our daughter, (3-18-02) My husband said he wanted the safest-best most reliable vehicle we could find for our "new precious cargo" And after much research - we decided on this make & model. And have been extemely HAPPY!!!!! In the past we've owned Porche, audi, Hondas, mercedes.. (all excellent rides!) But this BMW is definetly the ULTIMATE driving machine!!!!! It makes any drive too short, HAHA!
Favorites about this car: Everything from how comfortable-to performance & great handling especially around those corners & curves WOW!!! Those Z rated tires make the ride really-REALLY nice. We are on our second set of tires just recently. It's worth it all, and I would get another.
Only weak point of the whole package would be the cup-holders. The replacement was 40.00! The car salesman told me that's the only thing he could say negative about the car too.
