I like its looks that's why I bought it. But the gas mileage! Try 14-18 mpg. Interior really small. You sit too low. Love the power top, but why not hard top like the SLK? Noisy, too. The ride is a lot more bumpy than it should be for a luxury roadster. The 3.0i is slower for sure, I wish I had bought the M class after all. Come on BMW, you cheap bums, for the money we pay, give us free DVD Nav, Sat radio, more goodies and less rear blind spots. Lose the paddles, who needs them? They look stupid, anyway. Give us better looking wheels and a leather wrapped better looking steering wheel.
Power top, but should be metal or switchable with a metal one. Good transmission but car is SLOW. Good looks, but it's not an SLK.
More power. Add free Nav and Sat. Shorter lease. I have had it one month and cannot stand it.
