77,000 miles (stored each winter) after 14 years and every time I take it out, it seems like a vacation. To truly appreciate this car, You need twisty turny roads and a sunny day. The tiny truck fits a nice picnic and a couple of jackets. Pure heaven. The car is not fast, even by 2001 standards but it allows you to row through the gears and DRIVE the car rather than be susceptible to speeding tickets in 2nd gear. If you understand real sports cars, you will love this car.
Hate the auto shut off and have NEVER exceeded 22mpg highway or city, not close to the advertised mpg. Pay extra for the bigger engine by skipping the Nav system which is not the greatest, so I use WAZE instead. Car drives fantastic in Sports mode, cargo space is limited as and you cant reach in the back if seated due to low ceiling. Run flat tires deflate in extreme temp drops and the dashboard lights up telling you are flat. I use 89 gas and BMW concierge for service is worthless.
Acquired my 435i, Sport-M, package, on 11/29/13, I've had it now,19 months. Immediately replaced the 18" wheels, with 20's . Really love this car, FUN, & comfortable to drive. Also own a 2012, Corvette, Grand Sport, but prefer driving the BMW. The 3 different driving modes, does make a tremendous amount of difference, choose economy, over performance! BMW underrated 300hp, realistically it's 330hp. Really does obtain 32MPG/highway, Eco/Pro mode. It's BMW's lowest center of gravity car.
it is great thanks guys did great job
540i purchased from dealer pre-owned program. "Sports package" with upgraded suspension, xenon headlights, steptronic transmission. Fold-down rear seats. Car is very comfortable and inspires confidence each time you get behind the wheel.. Very reliable and most problems can be searched for by symptom on the web... (E39 club etc.). I really like the performance sedan style of vehicle....
I smile every time I drive it !
325 CIC Sport not a soft ride, as it has the sport package. its a great drive.
