I had the opportunity to drive my S40
from Atlanta to San Antonio. This was
a pleasurable round-trip, road noise
was at a minimum, CD-radio system was
reliable, braking was excellent, and
the adjustable seats were key to a
comfortable ride. My purchase
experience in a fully loaded S40 was
well below invoice price at around
$22k. This is an excellent value for
the dollar. As a previous BMW 325i
driver this car compares favorably.
My favorite features are the audio
system and the adjustable driver seats.
Soundproofing can always be improved to
reduce the outside noise--thought
soundproofing has already been done
well on the S40.
