The car is like a pedigree dog, pretty, but temperamental.
The parking break fell apart causing an intense squeal.
If the car is not driven for more than 7 days the battery becomes too weak to start the car. This is due to the cars own computer drawing the battery down. BMW claims this is a normal condition.
Driver seat squeaks.
The speedometer is 5 mph. slow.
I have to admit, this is one of the most exciting cars to drive. It tracks like it is on rails. The seats are not as comfortable as they could be, but they are not too bad for short rides under 100 miles. The car came the sport package, The tires used in this package hold well in both wet and dry weather, put the car on snow and you have a whole new meaning to the word scary... even worse if you accidentally hit the DSC (dynamic stability control) button.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
