Amazing review! Makes me wanna run to my nearest BMW dealership for an order BTW, I was in Portofino the same day (Sept. 2) during my summer vacation! When we arrived, they would not let us drive into the town cause parking was full. We left the town around 5pm though, so we missed the black M5 rolling in I am surprised you were even able to maneuver the car given how narrow the streets there are!
On a side note, driving at night on Italian mountain autostrada was one of the most intense experiences in my life. 130 km/h (81 mph) speed limit, really narrow curvy mountain 2-lane highway, with trucks going 50 mph on the right lane one by one, so you HAVE to pass them on a curve. I really wished I had BMW instead of Peugeot 308 i had for rental, cause I was not sure sometimes that i can go 80 mph safely on a curve, with a concrete wall on the left, and a truck on the right...
