2012 BMW X5 xDrive35i Premium 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Review
As with all BMW's, the quality of the car is good. I think (especially compared to the Lexus LS I traded for this) that the Idrive is very easy to use. The only thing I don't "get" at all is the electronic transmission shifter. Instead of clicking into gear, it's basically a switch. You have to squeeze the buttom on top and one on the side to put it in park rather than just shifing to park. Sometimes I don't push the buttons right and it doesn't go into park and I lurch forward.
Favorite Features
Just a solid car
Suggested Improvements
Again, for a company that bills itself as building "driving machines," I don't get the electronic switch instead of a solid shifter feeling on the transmission.

Hi. Actually you don't have to squeeze side button to park. Just press P on top. And even that is not necessary. You can just push stop/start key and it will go into park automatically.
