Summary:

Sexy with no substance

Faults:

Electronics have always been very sketchy.

Front braces loosened up.

General Comments:

Highs: Very sexy, especially with the top down. You get lots of comments. Strong motor (but see below), great brakes.

Lows: Very heavy (5500 LBS), mushy handling, and if you wear a watch, you will destroy the aluminum trim on the door.

It's like dating a super model; you get all the looks at the party, but she is all show and go.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm curious what your symptoms were with the front braces. I have a 2007 650i and I'm having some vibration issues when turning left (even if slightly) at highway speeds. Only 27k miles, so not expecting worn components.
