-the way it drives, still like a bmw
-the ammenities ie bt, xenon lit handles, new rain sensing wiper switch, dimming side view mirrors
-the engine for what it is (325)
-fit and finish better than e46
-temp dials are a nice touch

-Touchy initial bite on brakes, not enough feedback
-Steering is too heavy
-Throttle lag
-Ergonomics are terrible, window switches too far forward, interior is no longer driver oriented, terrible location of cupholders
-Quality of materials not up to par with e46
-HVAC not easily controlled, anything less than 83 deg blows cold air and 84 deg is too hot, no comfortable level found
-Interior styling very bland and un-bmw like, door panels big turn off
-Exterior styling

It's so nice to have my baby back after all this. I will be keeping this car for ahwile.
i miss your gold wheels
