I owned 3 Ford Explorers back to back. I test drove 2 BMWs, an Acura and Lexus. I found myself going back to BMW for a second test drive. I could not believe the handling and drive. I find myself amazed after 2 months each time I get into the car. I find myself uncomfortable when I drive any other car now as in maneuverability.
The stereo system is awesome. The panoramic moonroof will be awesome in spring and summer! I highly recommend the Xeon headlights, you won't be disappointed. One truly feel safe with the overall stability.
I believe the cupholders could be improved. It would be nice if the rear gate was automatic.The floor mats are nice but BMW also including the rubber/vinyl mats would be a nice extra. A multi disc CD changer is a plus as a rear hitch included for bike racks.
