Recent software update completely eliminated the herky jerkiness in my 2012 535i. The car is a pleasure to drive. But for pure fun and practicality my wife's new 2015 Audi SQ5 gets my vote.

I ended up getting sq5. My wife's daily driver. It is a great looking car with the 21 inch wheels, and it is wicked fast. It's good having an Audi and a BMW in the garage.
