my family has been driving this car for about 2 years now (35000 miles) and we have not experienced a single mechanical or cosmetic problem. Great commuter car (25mpg) with heated seats, temperature control and bose stereo. I consider this a luxury car for midgets, anyone over about 5ft 10in has very limited space to move. interior materials are much nicer than a GTP and the i30 costs alot less than the 325i. I have never regretted myself buying the i30. However I still find myself dreaming of driving a convertible with the top down on a curvy road just as the sun is setting after a beautiful day. that i would trade my i30 for.
bose stereo, climate control, acceleration, and the heated seats do wonders on an aching back.
more hip and legroom. the driver and front passenger have little to no room to move their feet. also vents in the rear passenger area would maybe stop some whinning, with leather seats it seems to take for ever for the passenger back their to cool off. the back seat passengers for ever to cool off
