I'm 2-3 weeks into my lease and all I can say is this is the best car I have ever driven, without a doubt. Not the fastest, but the best overall package. A 2.0 liter turbo that can get to 60 in around 5.5 seconds? Are you kidding me? Not to mention 35mpg in ECO mode for those long journeys. The car gets compliments almost on a daily basis for it's design.
It's been a while since I've looked forward to getting inside a car just for the sole reason of actually driving it.
I get lost in the 30 minute drive to work, and back home. I look forward to it like a child looks forward to desert time. I remember feeling this way 12 years ago when I bought my first ever BMW back in London, England; a 1.6 liter 316i coupe for £2600.
The acceleration of the car is what surprised me the most. Quite a nippy little bugger for a 4 cylinder The interior is very sexy, not the best out there, but it's more than enough for me. People go on about luxurious M Benz and Audi interiors but personally I prefer the 4 series interior. The wide angle idrive screen, touchknob and night time orange lights all over the car is very nice. Makes it look like something out of TRON.
The new idrive is a joy to work with and very fast compared to M benz system (last car was a 2011 E350 sedan).
In terms of looks, 'the car is a big head turner. I had mine tinted soon after delivery to get that black on black look going, so I move around quite inconspicuously
Noticeable wind noise inside the cabin and a few other first world problems that aren't even worth mentioning. If it's not obvious by now, I'm completely in love with this car.
Would be great to hear others experiences.
