Drivers Seat is ripping. Coming apart at bolster.

I wouldn’t recommend it if you want a luxury vehicle with a drivers seat that doesn’t come apart. Leather ripping at bolster drivers side. BMW service will not replace under warranty telling me I’m sitting in my seat improperly.

5.0

Very satisfied with my purchase

The car is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I are thrilled with the vehicle purchase. The car lives up to its name in style and performance. I’m looking forward to enjoying my birthday gift for a very long time.

5.0

Best car I have owned.

This car went beyond my expectations. From the autobahns of Germany to the potholed, unrepaired streets and highways I have to drive here in the US along with avoiding those who drive without any regard for others being on the road my car has performed.
