Don't buy a BMW over Lexus or others

Review

Since the purchase I have been plagued with mechanical issues that just shouldn't happen in a flagship vehicle like this. Here's the list: - Door handle broke off in my hand. - AC system noises took 4 trips to eliminate (most components replaced) - Front suspension vibration took 3 visits to resolve (bushings worn out after only 22k miles!!) - Battery replacement (dealer wanted $250) - Engine gaskets leaking (not heads) - Power steering hose leaking (replaced) - Stereo is terrible - Loud AC noise from engine compartment - Check engine light comes on for no known reason I'm selling this overpriced hunk of metal and going back to Lexus or Mercedes.

This is the finest luxury/performance sedan in the world for the money. Where else could you cruise in total luxury at 90mph & get 24 mpg????!!

Review

A first rate upgrade from my BMW 540i.It is especially roomy in the back seat and it drives smoothly. The sound system is nothing short of spectacular as this car had an upgraded radio.

Finest automobile I've ever driven. Hard pressed to find anything for BMW to improve on. Okay, 600 hp would be nice!
