    My car

    My first BMW and it certainly lives up to the hype. I have the optional adaptive suspension and auto gearbox which results in a creamy smooth drive which can be either extremely relaxing or exhilarating depending on how you wish to drive it. For me the best points are the drive, adaptive headlights and the cabin. The worst points are the cost of optional extras, the heated rear screen and wing mirrors which take an age to clear, the reversing lights which may warn other drivers but do not light up anything and the speedo which is obscured by the steering wheel (may be the way i'm sitting). These are all minor gripes and all-in-all I am very happy with the car.
