I smile every time I hear that exhaust rumble, and the M appears in the HUD at start up. First, I would buy the same car again no regreats from this owner. Second, you do have many on this board that have not driven the car .....too much car and driver reading. Third, you have to make the best choice for you and not what others think.
Based on the above posters you are hearing from a few of the car owners, and some of us took delivery in Germany. I hate to say it too many posters just complain about the car as it should have been gods first creation. All in all I can't wait to drive my M, and for the price coupled with crazy performance please find me better. Good luck with your choice!
