The tiptronic takes a bit of getting used to. It is very different and you should be very familiar with it before ordering this option. If you get a 04, it will not have bluetooth, and it will cost you over 2500 to get it retrofitted. The phone that comes with the car is junk, and neither BMW nor Cell companies will take any responsibility of hook it up. The microphones for the phones are junk. There are two possible upgrades that they will only tell you about after you complain loudly that people cannot understand you when calling from your car. I still only know about 100 of the 500 functions the I drive is able to perform. The dealership also does not know how it operates, figure it out!
Great steering, great looks, not many on the road. Fun to drive
Train the dealership on how the systems work! Rear seat is useless, and the seat belt warning dinger will drive you nuts! The drivers manual will not fit into the glove box, and there is nowere to put it! Some rattles develop inside, but if you can track them down, they can be fixed.
