The Wiplash Really Hurt. — Felt quicker then the S550 but it also didn't have the same suspension that the S class has. Real fun but it drove like a boat.

Pros: so fun, big and bad ass!!!

Cons: Had slight understeer like most big cars.

Affordable Luxury — Bought the car to tie me over until the 335i Coupe. Makes even the longest trips comfortable. Nice to drive around the city. Engine has lots of power

Pros: Quiet, Powerful and very comfortable. Every option you could imagine and more. nice looking car and excellent trunk space. Gets good mileage: 30MPG US+ on the highway, 23MPG US in the city.

Cons: scared of the repair costs... hope nothing ever breaks. Wish it was a stick not an automatic

Love The Engine And Looks, The Rest Is Mediocre Compared To Other German Brands — Always wanted one for the looks. Love the smooth and strong engine and the transmission. The fit and finish is good. Too many things break though and I am constantly trying to catch up. Details show good ideas but bad execution. Window lifters are a maintenance items with the same interval as brakes. Ashtray and other mechanical trim pieces fail or fall off. The radio is not up to par with Audi/Mercedes/Lexus. Does not work without the ignition key. Cruise control is overly complicated, has to be turned on every time the car is started. Key charges itself in the ignition but of course doesn't last forever. $200 replacement. I can't get the sunroof wind noise fixed. I am getting bored with this car and think about selling after owning for 3 years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine, Transmission. Good gas mileage for size and weight. Interior space. Supportive seets.

Cons: Radiator is know to fail suddenly with catastrophic engine damage as a result. Maintenance is higher than for other premium brands. soft brake feel.
