I would have given 6 stars for performance. Tremendous torque available at low rpm and plateaus all the way to near redline. Very quick, lots of power at every speed. 90% of the the performance of an M3 at one half the price. A joy to drive. Don't be fooled by horsepower specs. Run times to 60 and quarter mile blow the doors off cars making 25 to 50% more hp.
Better w/the factory sport option. Without it I had to put my own 18" wheels on and performance rubber. The stock run flats just don't cut it. With this upgrade the ride and grip are significantly better. Car is extremely sure footed.
Comfort and ride are marked down. Doesn't ride as nicely as an old 525i I had, but this is a different animal. I have the comfort package but still doesn't equal the old 525i.
Style marked down b/c the car, IMO, just doesn't look aggressive enough. Perhaps the aero package would help a little. I prefer a mean looking car, but also like the fact that this is a genuine wolf in sheep's clothing.
