Loving it. Handling on the street is a little more vague then in my old E46, but nowhere near as numb and bloated as the E9x/F30 3 series. So I'm very happy with the direction I chose. Finally found time to get a long drive in yesterday. Very comfortable. Even under break-in (no full throttle + <4k) this thing has gobs more power then necessary. At night, this thing is a torch. Visibility is incredible.

NAV isn't perfect (nothing new there) but over all I actually love idrive, and even better, voice commands.

One of the few negatives is the low fuel economy and small gas tank. I expected the first, forgot about the latter. So range between fill ups is a bit short.

The exhaust is pure sex. Nothing more to say about that.

I'll probably do a few autox's next year to get a handle on the driving characteristics. But by my own rule, daily drivers don't go on track. I have half a SpecE30 build for that duty (was @ NJMP last week instructing).
