    A Introduction To The Ultimate Driving Machine — This car has been wonderful to me for the last 5 years. It has been solid since the first day I drive it off the lot. There has been some minor electrical problems, but thanks to the full service waranty, what would've been some expensive bills were taken care of. The car drives like a dream, even after 80K miles, the engine hums like no other car I have ever owned.

    Pros: Performance, handling, steering, acceleration, comfort... the list is long

    Cons: Expensive to upkeep after waranty expires.

    The Best — The car is most def. the best car that i have ever owned and driven. the car is so fast. The car stock is pushing 225hp, by the end of the summer it will be pushing over 350 or so.

    Pros: Speed, Performance, Handling, leather, Moon/Sun roof, M3 wheels.

    Cons: The price of parts and labor. lol

    Great Entry-level Luxury Car. — The AWD system was quite capable, but I was looking for even more control, which is why I switched to a Rover. BMW quality was great though. The handling was superb!

    Pros: Everything mostly.

    Cons: Leather wear, EVERYONE has one

    Top Notch — Our car (not like this pic) was green metallic with beautiful interior seating, dashboard and steering wheel all tan in colour. Smooth ride all around. Safety is first class Has all the attributes of a fantastic family car

    Pros: Performance, class, sleek design and reliability

    Cons: Expensive at the time

    My Latest Toy. M Tech Everywhere! — So much better to drive than the A3 I had, interior feels a little cheap compared to the Audi. TV and Sat NAV factory fitted is pretty cool but the amp and speakers are pants! None of that matters though when you plant your foot in second, third or fourth.

    Pros: Power, Power, Noise, Power

    Cons: Thirsty

    Ultimate Driving Experience... Very True Statement Indeed — Before this car, I had a '96 Acura 3.2TL, the TL have more power than this car, but when you hit the gas, you are pulled back to your seat. When revving in high RPMs... the car just asks for more gas... does not lose power at high RPMs, suspension is amazing for summer weather, winter on the other had, too much torque, DSC comes on too quick...

    Pros: Amazing driving experience

    Cons: Some electrical issues with soundsystem

    Great Performance But Very Unreliable — The built and finish feels very solid. Performance is amazing! However, this car is haunted with engine and electrical problems. Maintenance is outrageous and super expensive! The dealership service dept. was its second home. I would never own one again.

    Pros: Great finishes and performance

    Cons: Expensive to maintain

    Maybe Not Everything I Want, But Everything I Need. — With one day to buy a car, I bought this. I've been very happy with it, 4 doors cause I always drive.

    Pros: Reliable, good looking, fun.

    Cons: Doesn't satisfy my sports-car desires, but does satisfy sports-coupe needs.

    Yeah Yeah... — Bimmers are highly over rated. drove this thing a few times and enjoy driving my Honda's more. Whatever, save youre money buy an Audi

    Pros: Speedy, great interior design.

    Cons: feels heavy when steering it, way to common/yuppie-ish for my taste.
