This is an awesome car. From the time you unlock it to the time you lock it and walk away, you are guarenteed sheer joy. The car has so many dependability control and saftey features that it allows you to spend time focusing on the comfort and entertainment. There is no shortage of that. The ride is not too stiff (improved in '05) and I like the interior (light wood = the best). The vehichle is very sophisticated if you equip it properly (please do). If you just want a dependable car to drive, there are others out there. If you will stand for nothing less than the best...name, engine, looks, entertaining and futuristic features, then equip one fully and join the club.
Navigation System (you must get this...it is awesome. It is by far my favorite). X-drive is a nice concept and gives driving confidence. Dynamic stability control. Great BMW engine. Rear headset DVD system. Automatic lights. Sirius. Bluetooth (standard with the 2005). Moonroof. Security.
1.Place foot pedals further apart. 2.Options for different shades of privacy glass. 3.Since it becomes pricey after options, it causes some people to strip it down to bare minimum. Just because your house is sturdy and looks good doesn't mean you skip furniture and interior entertainment. Splurge.
