- way more comfortable seats than anything else, 4-year zero-maintainance, looks, auxiliary input
This car is awesome - totally utilitarian, great driving car, and extremely comfortable all at once. How many other cars can do that? I have to admit I was looking very closely at the Audi A6 Avant, which is about $5K less than this car. The Audi is a great car, but there were a few things unique to the BMW that sold me. The seats: although pretty good in the Audi, the BMW seats were far more comfortable and supportive - and let's face it - you sit in a car so this is really important. The Panoramic moonroof is really great compared to the standard-sizedd one on the Audi. The fuel economy is slightly better, and the BMW is just more of an intuitive driver compared to the Audi. The BMW handles amazingly well - like a small car - while the adaptive suspension smooths out bumps on the road. I can't wait to drive it in the snow and test out the x-Drive!! They are both about as quiet as each other. The back seats of the BMW are also deeper and nicer than those in the Audi, making long-hauls that much more comfortable. And though the Audi has a certain understated elegance, the BMW has bold design that I love looking at. the BMW also has an auxiliary port to which any mp3 player can be connected. I also found the iDrive system to be pretty intuitive and after only a week I'm already getting used to it. it's true the car is expensive, but if you have the means I highly recommend one...
