ReviewI've had BMW's for several years and
was turned off by the new 5 so I
started looking further afield. I
liked the 330xi, but I've already had
that style 3-series. Then I discoverd
the R32. It is absolutely fantastic -
outperforms the 330xi, handles like
its glued to the road and looks
appealingly "stealthy". Interior
quality equal to (or better than) a
BMW, too. I drive it daily over our
X5 or Z3. Actually, I look for
excuses to drive it - it has
reinvigorated me and made me remember
why I love cars!
Best FeaturesHandling and power are amazing. Seats offer terrific grip, exhaust sounds sexy and stereo sounds reasonably good. Its a terrific package.
Worst FeaturesWhy de-content the xenons? I've had to order them through a UK dealer and retrofit. I wanted the headlamp wash, too (but plumbing difficult). Aside from content, biggest complaint is "VW" shift feel. The cable linkage feels as sloppy as my '92 Corrado.
