Great driving car, fast acceleration and comfortable.
"I love the performance and comfort of driving this Deutschland performance vehicle. The all wheel (X-drive) combined with the responsive ABS, the full accoutrement of all around air restraint system and other safety features make me feel very safe and confident. Asside from a few Caveats she's pretty perfect. i.e., there's no dipstick for the oil or transmission. The transmission is sealed, so I guess it's whatever, but to check the oil you have to rely on the dash computer. Also, all if the plastic shrouds covering the engine look very neat, but that's obviously going to retain heat, complicate personal servicing and obfuscate any oil leaks, etc...The windshield reservoir is hidden inside the passenger tire well and you have to remove the tire and shrouds to gain access for any repairs. One more thing is, for a car geared towards being sporty and nimble on "das Autobahn" the manual stick has an egregiously and laboriously loooooong throw. "

Buying second hand was much less than anticipated, especially for such a still very capable car, albeit higher milage.

My BMW 335xi
"The E90 model of BMW 335xi is a money pit nowadays. I really don't recommend it unless you are handy with a spanner. I changed my own turbos and all suspension, and it screams now; very satisfying. But if you cannot service it and maintain it yourself, look elsewhere."

Unless modified, the 335xi does not drive better than a rental; but with some software, it can really wake up and keep up with an M3.
