I acquired this vehicle from a relative knowing the special care and upkeep this car has received during the first eight years. I have not been disappointed. This car is the most fun ride I have experienced in nearly 40 years of driving and that includes, Corvettes, Mustangs, BMWs, etc. The handling on corners far surpasses all of the previous rides. Heads never fail to turn when this car approaches... probably the result of the small number ever built by BMW. Everyone wants to know what kind of car is that? If you love performance vehicles, drive one and you'll be hooked.
240HP of power routed through a five speed ZF manual - automatics need not apply.
Are there issues that could be corrected? Yes, but the uniqueness sets it apart. Side windows that roll all the way down come to mind. The 5/8" exposed glass tells me BMW ran out of design time to meet product launch.
