M Sport Diary

Wanted to log initial impression after first 200 miles in new M Sport. Have driven on highways, mountain roads, stop and go, and night time rush hour. Most fun ride by far have had pleasure to drive. Comfy seats, supportive and adjustable, cradle driver solidly in cockpit. NAV on HUD display keep eyes glued solidly on road and periphery. Although babying car during break-in period it's impossible to keep below 4500 RPM on highway. Speedy and torquey whenever you need power! Sports steering wheel very commanding, dash ergonomic and logical. Black on black headliner/interior cool, Premium PKG lux + sporty!

Happy trails! More to come…

My dream car... Unfortunately the sport seats are rotten to the core with rust. Whether BMW/NA handles it gracefully and professionally remains to be seen. One week after the fact I feel like BMW has left me hanging out on a limb. The clock is ticking................ Hopefully there will be no need to escalate this legally. But thus far I'm underwhelmed by BMW's response and the parent company's inability to take charge and take responsibility.
