This is a truly wonderful car. The ride is smooth and the build quality is great. I haven't owned a car that was built with more attention to detail. One must treat it with utter care, and go very easy on the car and all its amenities and it will last you. From new, mine has almost 110,000 miles. The only work done was the brakes, at 100,000 miles, the navigation dvd stopped working at about that time, too, and there seems to be a strange clicking noise coming from the dash. It could be the computer or navigation, or just a leaf in the a/c. Bar those mishaps, this is one of the most beautiful cars inside and out. My only complaint is that it doesn't have an electronic sport suspension setting.
Rear passenger foot rests and leg room, trunk space, electronic key that works from miles away, and the pick-up on this car, considering how heavy it is, is fantastic. Oh, and the M wheels. This car is built like a tank!
It would be nice to have an electronic sports suspension setting, so the car would handle with more aggression. Also, electronic sunshades, all around, and an in dash 6 cd changer. Having to pick your cds before a trip is a bit of a pain.
Love the car, hate the car. Most beautiful car I've
owned. A joy to drive, when everything works.
Replaced 4 window motors, 1 seat motor, a
radiator, 2 water pumps, an alternator, a drive
shaft, a CD player, and dash read outs. The other
day the exterior door handle just came off in my
hand. This car has been maintianed by BMW and
certified mechanics, yet the build quality work
against the owner. It's a shame considering the cost
of the car.
Style. Handling, interior comforts, and surprisingly
good mileage for a car of this size.
BMW should admit to common fails and reimberse
owners. Some of the these repairs are completely
uncalled for, when you consider that we paid
>$60K when new. Old Nissans I've owned have had
better repair experience.
Fantastic car to drive! Plenty Leg Room
and comfort features but don't plan on
leaving the repair shop for less than
$1,000 per visit (for instance, I
needed $30.00 in parts and the total
bill was close to $900.00). If you buy
one, do yourself a favor and STRONGLY
consider getting an extended (high
performance) warranty...You WILL forget
about the repair costs while driving
though! The best of the best (unless
you have the pleasure of driving the
this is the ultimate driving
vehicle...the only problem i have is
when i have to put it in the shop for
repairs. expect to dig deep...
nevertheless, when i get back behind
the wheel it seems all worth it.
the 440 watt 14 speaker stereo will
blow you away... i've never been able
to turn mine all the way up... the
handle is like a sports car but a nice
road vehicle all the same
