I've had an E36 M3 & '00 M5. This car is significantly better. The ride & comfort are the best I've seen with such performance. Not the fastest car out, but the balance of power, ride and awesome handling make it a fantastic package. Top down motoring is amazingly smooth & wind protected, yet when you want it, the sound from the loud pedal is better than the killer sound system! I love the ride adjustability & being able to cruise smoothly or flog it on a moment's notice. It's hard NOT to smile while driving this car!
Motor, handling, EDC, looks, 19" wheels, sound system, keyless remote, retractable hard top, sound of motor @ 5k+ w/ top down! 4 yrs of free maintenance is pretty sweet too.
Small back seat leg room & trunk space but that's expected with the retractable hard top. Still better than a 911. Sat nav is better, but still not as good as Lexus, Acura, etc.
