This is my first BMW and it is fun! Everything from the exterior styling to the driving characteristics are great. The iDrive system does take a little time to master but allows you to program many things that other cars do not. The car is getting well over the average miles per gallon in city traffic.
I like the sports drive mode feature and the convenience package allowing you to open the car and start it without inserting the key is great. The Bluetooth communications system works very well.
I only have a single disc CD player and there is nowhere to store CDs. The space under the CD player allows things to fall out very easily. The SIRIUS radio on mine was hard to get initialized.
We have enjoyed this car so far. We DO love the iDrive. Has awesome programmable features. Very well built car and is very good fit and finish. Car is ok on room but wish the back seats had a little more room. The 745i had better room but it was a lot more expensive. We looked at Audi, mercedes, Lexus, and Infinity. My wife fell in love with the overall feel of the car versus the others. The drive is very solid and is very tight to drive. Free maint was a plus.
All maintenance is free for the first 4 yrs/50,000 miles. My wife loves this as all oil changes, brake pads, wiper blades, transmission oil change, etc is done at the dealership at no cost. IDrive is great!! We love all the features. Automatic wipers, lights, and seat settings. Great Leather!
Cup holders are not the best design. Needs more storage compartments. Disk changer in glove box could be put into the radio itself like on other vehicles. Little more room in back seat.
