Two thumbs up for this car. Suits me much better than the S500 Benz it replaced. The performance/style/fun factor is purely BMW. The iDrive is a much better way of interfacing with the features than an overdone array of icons and buttons and is much less buggy than the Comand system on my last benz. Sound system is wonderful and the Bluetooth implementation is flawless. Well done all the way around!
Performance, driving experience, interior design, use of technology and very effective use of space.
A little too much wind noise at highway speeds. Some things we take for granted, like putting the car in neutral, should be more intuitive
