This is my first BMW and will not be the last. It does have a few miles on it but it performs great. Don't put off buying one. I owned over 25 cars all makes and models and this by far is the most fun driving machine I have ever owned.
I bought this car with 31.000. What a joy to drive. Fast, great ride and just love to take the off ramps at a nice speed.I have had benz caddy and a lexus and this cars ride is as soft as the lexus.
I brought this car in 2008 as a CPO vehicle. I have the sports and cold weather packages. Needless to say, I know a lot about this car. Most of what you are reading about the car is true, but I don't have a lot of the issues some people are having.
My car is a 6 speed manual, so I don't have any transmission problems. I have a 125000 on the car, and still have the same clutch. Oil leaks. Yep. Sorry to say unavoidable. The repairs can get rather costly, but find a good mechanic you will be able to manage it.
iDrive not as difficult as stated in many reviews. Logic7 is big improvement over HK but not perfect. Sport+Comfort seats are excellent. HUD is awesome. Nav is useful, though features are limited compared to newer systems and portables.
