I am leasing this car right now. I love it except for one thing .. The dealership had more than me for the past year. Why? The reliability has been very very poor to the point where I have to take it to dealership every month! Stereo going bad, top leaking, noise from door, trunk leaking. Sadly the quality I am used to from BMW is not present here. It is fun to drive if it was not for all things going wrong with it!
QUALITY CONTROL! This car is not cheap! So build it like other BMW cars!
Catches eyes at every stop light. Drives like a dream. Comfortable for shorter people, taller passengers may feel cramped. More trunk space than you would imagine for such a small car. Great car to drive on long trips.
Handling is amazing. Steers like a dream.
Should have lighted mirrors standard, should have disc changer or iPod connector standard. Zenon lights should be standard.
Great car,very happy with the 2.5 engine. I still look at the 350z and wonder if I should have gone with that one. Car is major fun to drive, very tight and feels very safe. I regret that i didn't get the fog lights. I wouldn't waste my money on the navigation system. Just "keep your eyes on the road and head upon the wheels"
I drive all day as part of my business and this car is making it a pleasure. I love the purring noises and the wind rush. I have had only positive comments from other drivers about the looks. Even with the price of gas, I cannot stay home for long without wanting to drive off for awhile.
I have Maldives blue - a great color for the sporty look and sleek design. The rain sensor feature and heated seats are great...the special headlights are wonderful at night.
The only improvement would be for the car to wash itself.
