This car is a dream. It performs well and looks great. I have had no problems with it. Unless you get a 535i or higher, they do not compare. BMW's are mechanical pieces of junk. You best not keep one after the warranty runs out. This caddy is super, handles extremely well. I also own a 2001 STS. It has 180,000 miles on it, still runs like new. To all the haters, you can put a dead key fob in the center console pocket and the car will work fine. Read the manual. If you want cavernous rear seat room, get the DTS.
V8 Northstar engine is bullet proof, sport, auto manual transmission. All the gadgets. Cooled seats. Remote start.
Interior plastic is cheap looking. Navigation could be easier to use. Need to have an ignition key switch somewhere. Gets now where near the EPA gas mileage estimate.
