Purchased As New
The car (all packages except ventilated/luxury seat package) was delivered to me 2 days ago. Been driving here and there around town. To put my review in perspective, I had a loaded 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD before this car. This car blew the TL away!! Is it worth 25k more, not sure just yet...
One of the reason we needed a new car is for the cargo space for the planned family. The room on the rear seats is HUGE!! (larger than the X6) Compared to other SUVs, it had much more leg room and maybe headroom as well. The interior is top notch!! The instrument panel along with the iDrive system provides the driver so much information (maybe too much)...
The drive is what really seperate a BMW from the rest. Yes, it is not your conventional BMW driving experience, but we knew that as this was design to be a more touring sendan. Still the car with its dynamic driving system outperform the TL in everyway!! Corners, acceleration and the smoothness is incredible!! I had to look down on my speedometer all the time, because I didn't realize I was doing 70mph...
So far I have no problem with the car, but then again it is only 2 days old...the maintanance is free for 4 years on BMW so it is a plus.. we also purchased the tire insurance for 5 years.. as the car comes with run-flat which is about 400-500 per tire..
I love the look of the car, some people hate it, but I love it... it drive bigger than it looks... but it is not an SUV and doesn't drive like one for sure...
The cargo room with seat down is very large..with the seat up it would be just like a typical sedan but with a little more height due to the hatchback..
Overall, I think this is a great car.. I bought this for $66k with the MSRP of $72k.. (they also terminated my TL lease without penalty).. Is it worth the money?? So far, I believe it is.. this car would be a huge bargain if it is at $60k... Not many 2011 still out there... get this before they are all gone...
