After driving a 4.4i X5, I decided to
trade up to the 4.6is. I was
always "wowed" by the 4.4i, but the
4.6is with the 340 hp engine blew my
socks off. I think it's the best car
I've every owned (this my 4th BMW, so
that's saying alot!)
The interior design is very nice, and
comfotable yet gripping "sport" seats.
The thing handles like a M5.
And the wheels, oh the wheels, 20inch
5 stars. They make the car.
The wheels, handling, and fly by the
seat of your pants performance. The
tuned exhaust also makes a throaty
don't-mess-with-me rumble. Also,
spring for the optional cargo load
floor, it's the best $380 option you'll
ever get. Makes those trips to Home
Depot so much easier.
The brake dust on the beautiful wheels,
the navigation system takes some time
getting used to.
The speed sensitive steering is also
strange when you first drive it, but
you quickly adjust.
