total redesign for 2011, the exterior a perfect balance between what sporty and luxurious should be. driving impressions feel solid and responsive. powerful v6 engine even for the 28i model. interior design and technologies completely brought up to date, unlike many luxury car makers whos interiors look like from 1985. idrive is improved but still too many sub menus, somewhat difficult to adjust while driving. priced slightly higher than competitors but well worth the money. you wont be disapointed.
fast, responsive, high quality solid interior and exterior features. maintenace free program a total plus. just to get a simple oil change in these luxury vehicles will set you back just over a hundred bucks. thats not including the service I and service II which range by a couple hundred extra dollars. glad that bmw offers this "free" as part of their program.
improve idrive again, throttle responsiveness at initial take off takes some getting used too. no spare tire, i hope the run-flats it comes with hold up in case of emergency.
