Pros: comfort and performance
Cons: no direct iPod connection, sucks in snowBest cost/value ratio of any lux car on the market.
Pros: Navigation, rear view camera, acceleration
Cons: Voice control is not accurate
Advice: Don't get lured into buying brand names like Lexus and BMW.My wife wanted a luxury car but I wanted a sportier drive, when we test drove the M35, we both agreed that this was the ONE. BMW 5s has such a stiff old fashion interior with anemic power when compared this M and cost more! We ended up with a M35x with a premium package (still cheaper than the 5s), all my passengers were impressed with the roomy interior and I was just thrilled when I reached 120km/h before I reached the end of entry ramps.
Pros: All Wheel Drive with Wheel Rear drive feel.
Cons: Interior Color choices are very limited.
Advice: V6 is plenty fast enough.Great Car! I drove GS, 5 Series, E-Class and bought this because it was best car. I traded in my A6 turbo and this car is almost as fast.
