I went to the BMW Center at Spartanburg
to pick up the vehicle. It is a great
experience and I had the opportunity to
drive an identical vehicle on both the
road track and off-road track at
whatever extremes I had the nerve and
capability to handle, so I can
guarantee it is stable and will peform
as I have come to expect from a BMW. It
is exceptionally smooth for an SUV.
The engine, drive train and AWD
combination are perfectly integrated.
The split rear hatch, the perimeter
sensors, the quality of the interior
appointments and the exterior design
The cup holders are bad. They will not
hold two cups of any shape at the same
time. The audio system should offer a
cassette/CD combination. The front
passenger seat should fold foward for
loading long objects.
