A wagon that's a sport's car

2008 BMW 5 Series 535xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Previously owned a Mercedes E class wagon and this is a totally different experience. I do find myself still comparing the two vehicles. I think the Mercedes seats have more support and my biggest disappointment with the BMW is the turning circle which is not nearly as tight as the Merc. Getting used to the iDrive but I still think there's too much confusing and unnecessary engineering in these new-age vehicles.
Handling and power. Styling, interior space, huge sun roof - except for the small air leak, satellite radio.
HVAC is less intuitive than Mercedes. Cup holders. Storage space around driver. Turning circle. Nav system - why doesn't it provide the right/best directions sometimes?
