"Best every-day car!"5.0 starson by MiguelRMP
Pros: A pleasure to drive every day, in every condition. Excellent driving position and adjustments, crisp, responsive, sticks to the ground on curves, breaks incredibly and wife-friendly!
Cons: Few available, so double-check the accessories list: mine has tech package and DCT, but no bluetooth. At this price, bluetooth is not standard! Driving position could be lower.
Summary: As automotive engineering tech goes, can't beat it - perfect for any situation. In terms of gadgets, iDrive is OK, LCD screen is huge and you can use the touch-sensitive keys under the CD slot to program shortcuts across the entire platform. The DCT is very respondive, and M-mode in automatic is really sharp if you don't want to shift yourself. If you do, you'll feel the kicks when you shift up, and you can use the engine to shift down as you brake. The shift lights are eye-candy. The dampening settings are useful for day-to-day driving (soft) and going over hard bumps (hard). Haven't had the guts to try launch control yet.
