I bought the M45 sport 2 months ago and can't be happier with the choice I made. This car handles and drives better than the competing 5 series models I drove and leaves most luxury sedans in the dust. It wasn't the value that drove me to buy this car (it is way cheaper than the beamer) but the overall package. Even the much more expensive BMW 550 doesn't deliver the luxury this car delivers, and I prefer the interior of this car. The back seat passengers have more leg-room and can actually adjust their seats. This is the first time my two kids have stopped fighting over the front seat. The younger one actually prefers the back. Overall, could't be happier. Love, love the car.
Voice control, bluetooth, air-cooled front seats, active rear suspension, the big trunk, the Nav system.
Fuel econ could be better but with the v8 the econ is understandable.
