The interior is well appointed and everything is within easy reach. I'm a little disappointed on the sound system, I was told by my BMW rep that iPod connectivity was standard. It does have a port, but you pay extra for the integrated cable for control on the sound system, the speakers really aren't all that, my jeep grand cherokee was better in that aspect. I have only had it 4 days, but I just love it otherwise. I look for excuses to go for a drive, the gas mileage seems to be ok except when you get on the gas hard, tranny seems rough.
Huge sunroof, power, handling, 6speed auto with manual option is loads of fun. Loads of leg room, comfortable seats, Love the auto up/down windows.
Better sounds system standard on a 44k auto, tranny seems a little rough when down shifting going up hill, seems to shift a lot and very hard at times, no complaints on shifting on level surfaces. The dimmer switch has to be pushed forward to bright.
