"Bought it with 24k on the speedo three years ago. Only replaced battery and seeping transmission seal - $1300.both paid for by the warranty. Never got to use more of the $3600. warranty. I pass trucks at 90-130 mph, and slow down. Superior handling,use it for coast to coast trips a couple of times a year. A 3, or even 5-series doesn't come close to this car in comfort, or performance. Everybody said too complex to work on, and trouble prone -- not so. I change the oil myself and replace the $350.rear tires every 20k that is all The anti-paparazzi side and rear power window shades, cooled/heated massaging seats and rear foot rests spell luxury for the next starlet you date. I would buy another used one in a heartbeat. On a flat Kansas interstate I get 26.8, around town 19.8 I have the regular suspension and premium 19" wheels. Best car I have ever driven."

Pros: "awesome driving machine!"

"I bought this car with 60K miles in it and now have 184K and I can say it has been the most rewarding 124K I have ever driven. This car drives amazing, yet the gas mileage is 29 to 31 HWY MPG. It is spaciousness and comfort are unequal, yet never fails to turn heads wherever it goes. The best part is that this car is made for a driver and someone who doesn't trust anyone with their car but who is a doer himself. You can reset and read almost all codes through the dash and when you need to buy parts, they are far less expensive than an American car. The only reason I am selling is because I would like to upgrade to a 2010."

"Bought car used, but certified, 100,000 mile warranty. Love the car! Although they had to put a new $8,000 transmission, under warranty . They bent over backwards for me, always a loner car. Sarasota BMW. Even the owner sent me a gift basket because of the inconvenience. Car now runs like a top. Perfect for me, I'm 6'5."
