Brief review: awesome so far. Especially enjoying the 6MT and ZHD.
Did a Performance Center Delivery, loved every minute of it. Will probably go back to Greenville for one of the M Performance classes. Was exhilarating driving a 335 on the track like I stole it.
Drove this amazing route
home, with tons of twisties through valleys. I would highly this route to anyone going home via I-75 from the performance center. 236 miles, got 30.6 mpg with 50/50 Sport/Eco. Lots of small towns and speed drops to 25 mph, though. Kept RPM below 4K.
Have not yet customized all of the iDrive / infotainment settings to my liking. One thing I would like is for the toggle wheel on the right side of the steering wheel to toggle through my preset favorites and not all options on a given input. I might have to break down and RTFM. Nav is just OK. Not perfect, somewhat counter-intuitive to use. I like being able to send the car an address from my computer or android phone via the BMW Remote App
. However, it would be nice to send a whole route...
Auto Stop Start has been a nonissue for me, since I almost never sit at a stoplight with the clutch engaged and in neutral.
As far a color choices, I couldn't be happier with the MG/Dakota Everest Grey combo. I haven't taken any interior pics, so I will have to get out and do this sometime soon. The outside is stunning, the metallic grey really takes on the color of the environment, almost chameleonesk. The bi-xenons really complete the look, really remind be of two mean eyes in the front. I spent yesterday taking exterior pics, daytime and a couple nighttime pics too. Not the most awesome venue, but it sure was convenient. Ignore the bug graveyard on the front...
I couldn't resist putting in a little HDR action from this angle...
