    i always thought the interior felt very cheap, particularly the dash/radio/climate controls.

    Yeah i drove a few of them when I was a valet. Interior is very plasticky...but I think it could make a great cheap/fun DD for someone who cant afford BMW's ;)

    Pretty reliable, very quick, decent for a big sport sedan...but I'd rather have a 550i or 545i


    The interior is pure rubbish for a car of its class :hsd:

    If you can get by that, or if you just want bang for the buck they are pretty hard to beat.

    Axel hop is fixed by removing the run flats for the most part... First mod will be to remove the fucking skip-shift bullshit...

    They switched motors in 2005....

    Somewhat shitty interior...

    No one makes wheels for them, you'll have to get them custom made...

    Dont' really miss mine...

    Several companies make ways to get around it, but if you're going to do it midaswell get an ECU tune, that way you get some more power out of the deal :wiggle:

    Winner.

    Or buy a G8 which would still be under warranty.
