This car changes driving from a chore to a pleasure even ruffle your composure. the sound system is great, the insulation keeps out road noise, the seat is comfortable, and the luxury inlay is beautiful. The moonroof is fun, and the remote control key system makes you feel like a spoiled rich man. Unfortunately it has been to the dealer for repairs 10 times in under 2 years, and some of the problems, like water leaking through the back door are serious. After initially being totally in love with this car, I have begun to wonder if I would be foolish ever to buy another one.
Brakes, crash safety, front visibility, comfort, beauty, highway cruising smooth and effortless even at high speeds.
A $40,000 car should not leak persistently, nor have sudden battery failure. It has poor rear visibility due to head rests, and of course everyone who owns one knows bmw owners are expected to smoke in their cars but not to drink coffee.
