My first BMW after years of driving Mercedes and I was VERY hesitant. But after an EXTREMELY comprehensive analysis, test drive and search of all the competing brands I decided on the BMW and I could not be happier. At this point I would not go back to a Mercedes and wonder why it took me so long to make the change! Great car, great electronics, great handling for its class. The are a few things I would change in future designs but they are relatively insignificant. Love the car, love the brand.
