Advice: Be ready for extreme comfortGreat car...a little expensive at 75k...but other than that, it's great... I've had this car for about two weeks, and I just bought a Mercedes E420 about a month or two ago, my family traded in our old cars for these shiny German beasts. I've got to say this car is extremely comfortable, you really don't want to reach your destination once you're in it. But the iDrive system is very complicated, and you're best off reading the owner's manual cover to cover! BMW is smart, they just don't know how to put their great inventions into words on paper.
Pros: The Harman/Kardon and i-Drive
Cons: A lil too complicated
Advice: Buy this car if you have the money but be sure to hire a co-pilot in the begining to understand the controls.There isnt much to say because everyone knows that its the most advanced machine on the planet earth along with phenomenol handling , great response and a fall asleep luxury. This is a sex machine !!!
Pros: Interior comfort and conveniences.
Cons: The car is very unreliable. Don't know if it was released too early or if the technology is just too much. I have experienced three engine failures -- complete loss of engine power. BMW has been unable to fix it.
Advice: Do not buy this car until BMW can prove the bugs are fixed!! If you want a reliable car, you will regret buying this vehicle.The car handles very well and acceleration is decent, not great. Interior comforts are wonderful - when they work. The big issue is that the car is very unreliable. I have experienced three engine failures during highway driving. The car loses all power and shuts down to idle speed. BMW has been unable to fix the issue, blaming it on 'programming problems'. Worse,BMW is unwilling to stand behind the vehicle even though it is dangerous to drive. There are also many other less significant problems such as naviagation system, phone and radio do not work 100% of the time. The car has had more than a dozen recalls. I have never had more car regret in my life!! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!!!
