525i Auto w/ Premium & Cold Weather
Pkgs - Looks great inside & out.
(What's all the fuss about? They kept
the classic BMW styling cues, but made
it sleek, & modern looking.) Lots of
convenience features (i.e. driver
position memory, dual climate control,
free scheduled maintenance, etc.) 2.5L
6-cyl is adequate, but unexciting. Auto
transmission is smooth and shifts
well. Ride is refined and quiet, as
you would expect. Roomy and comfortable
Looks great. Nice Climate Control
System. Quiet, refined ride & handling.
iDrive System is a pain to learn and
use. It does allow you to customize
many of the cars features, but it is
not intuitive to use. (At least remove
the Audio System from iDrive and give
us conventional audio controls!)
Horrible cupholder placement & design.
