Let me start out with how much I absolutely LOVE this car. I got my first vehicle back when I was 16 years old and it was a little 4 cyclinder hyundai tuburon. While it was a nice car and was wonderful on gas mileage it was fairly slow and to put it nicely fell slightly short of luxory. After I graduated high school I attended a small private college in central florida, Stetson University. I would have to say 4 out of 5 of my friends drove luxory cars. Apparently private college = loaded parents! Well finally last May I graduated and my parents were so proud of me that they offered to give me a decent down payment on a car of my choice - BMW! So I got the 2007 BMW last year and have been in love ever since. The performace and handling is absolutely amazing. Everyone who sees it and rides in it can't believe how sleek it looks and how comfortable it rides. My only complaint it the gas. Paying $3.60 for 93 octane gas is not exactly exciting but to me it's worth it. I am pretty certain I will be a BMW advocate for life.
