Best car I have ever owned
I was told that if I ever drove a BMW, that I would never want to drive another car. They were right. This BMW handles like a dream. It is quiet, but full of power. It handles corners, acceleration, and fast braking like a champ. The interior looks like brand-new. Unlike some older vehicles with leather interior, none of the leather has cracked or split. There is so much common-sense engineering built into this car that other cars pale in comparison. Even the stock sound system sounds great.

Fast, but not without its flaws.
The overall performance of the vehicle is great. The handling of the vehicle is on point and turns on a dime. I like the overall interior and exterior design. The leather is of good quality and the Bose stereo system is superior. I haven't had any major problems with the interior besides a button for the A/C falling off. The engine is strong, although I did have a problem with the torque converter in the transmission failing which ended with me getting the whole transmission rebuilt. There are a few things that I dislike about this vehicle and that is the common problem with the transmission and window regulators going out. I have replaced the window regulator on the drivers side three times now, in two years. I really can't complain since it is a older vehicle and has many miles on it. Overall, the car drives great... but noise reduction could be better. I can hear noises from the outside like I am driving a Honda. Other than that, the vehicle's interior and exterior are up to par for my standards in a vehicle. And another thing, the trunk is roomy enough for luggage and a speaker box.
