Traded in my '02 325 - wow!!! What a difference! Even though this is a larger car it handles superbly. Tight steering, good acceleration, smooth braking. Quality, fit and finish are all outstanding with top grade materials. The iDrive has a steep learning curve but very useful once you have it mastered.
20-way seat position, comfort access package, quality of interior surfaces, overall performance. Highly recommend the premium and sport packages.
There's a lot of exposed sheet metal on the sides with no protection. I will be paranoid about 'door dings' for as long as I own this car.
