Probably one of the best sedans ever made
December 1, 2018
I have owned this vehicle for over a year now. I have 13000 miles on it with no problems at all. For me, this car is the perfect balance of comfort, practicality, performance, and style. It has a comfortable and supple ride when you want to take a leisurely cruise. But switch it to "sport" mode and you can toss it around corners and race down the street if you want. At 100 MPH on the highway it feels like my wife's toyota at 50 MPH but quieter. It is built for autobahn speeds so it loves travelling at high speeds. It is rather quiet at those speeds and very stable. Sometimes when I am in the left lane on the highway I look down at the speedometer and am surprised at how fast I am going without feeling like going that fast. The electronics and infotainment in this car is the best I have ever had in any of my previous cars. The voice recognition software in this car is awesome. You press the TALK button and say "Take me to 6743 Oakbluff Rd, Ossining NY" and it never fails to recognize what you are saying. The Navigation system recognizes your command and maps out the route for you without touching any buttons. The radio and music buttons are extremely well designed and intuitive. There is so much better human-machine engineering in this car than any Japanese cars I have ever owned. I love the sport seats as they are power adjustable 8 different ways and they hug your sides which is really good in spirited driving. The winter package comes with heated steering wheel. The entire steering wheel heats up toasty and it is such a blessing on cold winder days when you get into your car. In less than 30 seconds your seats and the steering wheen heat up beautifully. The AWD system is fantastic in NE snowy days. I don't think I will ever own another brand of car after owning this BMW.
