As far as the command system, it is far easier to use than the BMW. I have had both.
Now, in my second month of ownership, I am extremely happy with the car and have no regrets not buying the 650i. What I like most, is that the car has very distinctive styling which sets it apart from every other MB. Secondly it is a low volume car and I don't see myself at every street corner.
Part of my reluctance buying a BMW is that all of the models look alike except for the length. Only an enthusiast can tell them apart.
