The dash material grade is the same/similar to the E69. Negative areas are some of the switches (eg. temp control between the vents), door pulls (cheap plastic vs wrapped material), plastic metal strips (in and out). Some of the tinniness may be down to early production build for these cars, and they may tighten the tolerances a little down the line. The material quality will take a step up (like on the E60) with the LCI in a few years I expect.
best part of this post is i realized chrischeung is getting a new BMW EVERY year!! i like that strategy, this is something i may need to adopt. not sure how my wallet will handle it, but what the hell.
