My husband loves the engine. It's quiet and peppy. We live in the country and are averaging only 20 mpg. You really do have to read the owner's manual. On the down side my car sits at the dealership because the computer system went down at service and a part has to be manufactured. Five weeks and counting. BMW has been attentive to the situation.
Secure, tight ride and handling.
I do not like the run flat tires either. I find myself correcting steering a lot especially at high speeds.
