LOVE my car!
I love this car. I have a BMW X-5 and a BMW 535. I have driven BMW's since 1999 . Before that I had Mercedes. The BMW Driving experience leaves Mercedes in the dust.. There are only two things I miss on my 428I, 4 cly.240 HP.The Park& Hold feature, and the over head door grips. For a Senior citizen these two small insignificant feature mean a lot. That is my reason for not giving all 5 stars. Fun Car !!!!
I smile every time I drive it !
It's a hard top convertible. with the M-Sport pkg. In the iS it has a performance oriented firm ride, which makes for sometimes a jarring ride. (south-eastern PA roads) RFT tires don't add any suppleness to the suspension either. BUT, this is the most fun to drive, best looking (inside or out), best performing vehicle I have ever owned. Ultimate Driving Machine? You Bet! Oh, by the way, it has averaged 22.5 MPG in 20,000 miles of mainly suburban driving. The N-54 engine is sweet & powerful.
Fourth BMW I've owned...quality and outstanding comfort combined with smooth, powerful performance.
