Great Car Limted By Electrical Quirks

ReviewMechanically, the only thing I've had
to do is replace the brakes once.
Electrically, it's been a nuisance.
In the past 2 years it's been in the
shop for ignition failure, windshield
wiper motor replacement (twice),
window regulator failure, electronic
trunk release failure, failure of
sunroof, loss of sound to half the
speakers. The heated seats keep
blowing a fuse,and it can't be
repaired without replacing both front
seats. Each shop visit has run in the
several hundred dollar range, and BMW
dealers seem to think its nothing for
you to wait 2 weeks for an appointment
and then leave your car there for 2-3
Best FeaturesNear perfect drive/comfort factor. Gorgeous inside and out.
Worst FeaturesElectrical gremlins. Base stereo sound quality is poor for a vehicle of this caliber. 2.8L is a little underpowered. I won't even mention the cupholders.
