I have a favourable opinion of the brand, I like their style but BMW is messing up with some of their virtues and add annoyances in the process. Who asked for run-flats with no dedicated room for a spare, no dipstick, a complicated water pump expensive to repair or even a silly N20 to replace the base I6?
I love my car but it had its fair share of problems. At least, I got great service. I don't see another car in this class that I want more than a F3X I6, but those annoyances bug me and t I think that I would take a Cadillac ATS 3.6 before a 328i 2.0T.
