After 7 years of ownership, finally had enough of the continual issues with this car and traded it in (not a BMW).
Only drove the car in the summer but that did not prevent many costly repairs once the warranty was over.
Major coolant leak leading to engine damage (covered by warranty), cooling fan replaced, passenger window motor, 2 batteries, alternator, 6 CD changer malfunctioned, steering alignment could never be done properly leading to uneven tire wear on expensive Dunlops, bad sunroof windnoise that "could not be fixed", excessive road noise, clunky transmission, check engine light "forever" ON, low battery warning would appear often.
Each dealer visit; minimum $1000.
Liked black on black look with BMW performance wheels.
Very roomy interior.
