Pros Looks really great, very fun to drive, prestige !!!.
Cons Requires using BMW service which is frustrating, poor value, and In my experience unacceptable.
Summary Great styling upgrade, powerful remarkably smooth acceleration. My two X5s, one 5 series and one 3 series notwithstanding... I could not buy this car because the dealorship seems to be overcharging for service to offset poor sales.
Pros new idrive, power, good bluetooth connectivity and ipod interface, looks, fun to drive
Cons price, rough shifting transmission at low speed acceleration (auto tranny seems to hunt for correct gear), active ventilated seats are worth about 1/4 their price
Summary Overall I like the car. I down-sized from a 2008 Mercedes S550 and the ride comfort and interior room do not compare, but the BMW is more fun to drive, accelerates just as good, and gets marginally better mileage than the big S550 sedan with the V8 did. The BMW's electronics are better, and it is a better deal for 2/3 the price than the S550 was.
Pros beautiful inside and out still not worth buying due to tire problems
Cons BMW run flat tires
Have had to change 7 tires so far and i'm just in my first year of owning one
You can have the tire insurance for an extra $1500 but you still have
to go to the shop to fix them and cannot relay on the car for long trip(no spare)
Summary to sum it all up
car is beautiful but BMW tire are awful and makes this car the worst car i ever owned !!!

Pros Crazy fast with a sub 6 sec 0-60. Sticks to corners like glue. This is a true BMW lovers car for someone who likes to occasionally accelerate fast and hit corners with speed. Insane.
Cons Ride is not as smooth as the 7 series.
Summary Tons of fun. Sport package with the 8 speed paddle shifters. 300hp turbocharged straight 6 is plenty fast. You will love it. Be careful though as it can take more than you can dish out. Great car. Ride not as smooth as MB E550 but the BMW seat is better for my lowback problems.
