This car is simply incredible. Have 3 passengers to take in style, no problem. Need to haul something, fold down the rear seat, no problem. You like a great stereo, it's there. This car does not behave like a 540i with extra power. This car is a precision driving instrument waiting to respond to how you'd like to drive it. It is the most fun thing to drive I have ever owned and in day to day driving is practical. Yes it has a 6 speed manual, but the clutch is easy to engage and the engine has so much torque that you can mininize the number of shifts you need in traffic.
This car is an incredible piece of automotive artestry. The engineers at BMW got this one just right.
The ability of the car to behave like an LS 400 or a 4 seat 911 depending on the driver's whim.
