SMG makes the car hard to drive smoothly. Active steering feels awkward and unnatural. Otherwise the car is a terrific driver. I can live with the iDrive. I think there is a little dodge stratus in the back. It makes the car look cheap honestly. I never quite got used to the awful trunk. The car seems confused on whether to ape porsche or dodge.The front is unique, not really attractive but not particularly ugly either. Saddle up behind the seat, and the outside won't matter any more.
This is really the ultimate drivingmachine! Ditch Active steering and SMG.
Whats up with all the techno-wizardry? Not all of us like this. I have bought bimmers for years and the electronics are always the achille's heel. All the reliability problems seem to trace their lineage to overzealous electronics.
