Nice, but way overrated.

ReviewThe exhaust note is too loud and raspy. That may fit a utilitarian, no- compromises car like a 911, but not a BMW. At lower speeds there is a looseness in the gearbox. It sounds like something is broken. BMW says this is totally normal given the car's racecar heritage. I say that's a cop-out. The car is fast but not enough to justify that. The stereo sucks. I've had problems with speaker vibration from the beginning and BMW can't or won't fix it. The car's performance envelope is too far beyond what you can do on the street. Under normal driving, this car is no better than the 330ci. My advice is to save the extra $20k and buy that model.
Worst FeaturesMake the exhaust note less frenetic. Upgrade the sound system. Fix the crappy gear box. Lose the side air vents that serve absolutely no purpose. UP THE TORQUE. The new Altima has as much torque as this car. A power peak at 7,000 PRM doesn't do much good away from the track.
