"I truly have so few complaints about this car I would have to really dig for them. The car is expensive to maintain... it is not your average American made car when it comes to maintenance, but when you buy high end, you need to expect it. It was great until the warranty ran out.. now it feels like $1000 every time it is time to have work done. That's it with the bad stuff. The car is comfortable and a pleasure to drive... when it needs to get up and go, it does. I'm not crazy about the placement of the cup holders... but other than that, all the controls are easy and well placed. Pure comfort to ride in..."

"Great driving car. Could be more comfortable, driver and passenger friendly. Great handling and road stability. No back seat leg room with tall driver. Ridiculous excuse for front cup holders. Difficult getting satisfaction from dealership."

"Had been looking for a 4 cyl car and ended up getting this 8 cylinder beast that purrs. This car had a HUD - and that compelled me to test drive it and the rest is history. Smooth power on tap with Sport Pkg, Cold Weather Package, HUD,Active Steering, NAV, Parking aid, heated mirrors and all that jazz. But the V8 is powerful, and can it corner. I drive moderately and I get these hotheads tailing me on off ramps and then I just get miffed and step on it and these hotheads just drop away - they may have V8's in the truck or whatever - they cannot cope with BMW's ability to laugh at curves and if I have DS mode selected, well they fall away so fast, its funny. That is so much fun right there. AND the car is QUIET - whisper quiet refinement in the cabin. A fire truck with siren blaring stuck at an intersection is not agonizing to the ear drums, merely irritating to the psyche. The HUD posts direction on the windscreen , warnings, speed etc. one cool gadget that. All in all this car is real fun thing to drive. All that power is sheathed until needed, and then the thing roars & sprints off without skipping a beat. The rest of the time its refined interior and 10 speakers invite you to listen to Smooth Classics on the radio or CD, or SAT if you like to pay."
