Don't buy early production cars

ReviewMy last car was a BMW 5 series. After
seeing pictures of the new 5, I decided
to get the E class. The handling is
better than I expected but still not as
good as the bimmer. I did get an early
production car that was full of little
nagging problem, squeaks, radio that
stops working intermittenly, heated
steering wheel that only works a few
minutes. Finally the Navi that was
supposed to be retrofitted in March
could not be done at all. A blessing in
disguise because I did get a *new*
replacement car with the Command
system. The new car with the exception
of misaligned Xenon lights has been
much, much better than the old car.
Best FeaturesBoth the interior and exterior styling
Worst FeaturesGet rid of the brake-by-wire system. It's technology for technology's sake and does not work as well as it should. Fix the way the remote steering wheel controls for the radio. The up and down "seek" should work with the preset stations.
