    So when I picked up the keys to a BMW i, the notepad was ready to take down what surely would become a dozen or so criticisms, especially because.

    Both front and rear suspensions are mounted to solid but well-insulated subframes to decrease transmission of road noise into the passenger compartment. For anyone with experience using computer and consumer electronics interfaces, the iDrive learning curve should prove to be reasonable. I bought this 5 yr old car to a replace a G35X and I couldn't be happier. If there are three selections, it can be turned to three; if there are five, you have five positions. And it's all but impossible to upset the chassis-come pothole or tar strip, the i keeps its feet planted.

    Good car so far. I purchased my xi two months ago with , miles on so I knew going into it that at some point I may run into routine repairs that occur with a higher mileage vehicle.

    So far I've only changed the oil and filter and rotated the tires did these things myself It has a slow windshield washer fluid leak but I've located the problem and need to replace the hose.

    Some of the quirky BMW engineering has taken some getting used to. For example, the car doesn't have a dipstick to check the oil level So in order to check the oil level, you have to drive the car for about 10 minutes until the computer is able to get a reading on it.

    Also, the car does not carry a spare tire so you have to equip it at all times with run flats, which is a little pricey. In my opinion, BMW designs their cars to make it as difficult as possible for the average person to do their own maintenance.

    An example of this is that underneath the car on either side are the brackets where it is safe to use a jack to raise the vehicle. However, these are so close to the ground that there is not a jack anywhere that is low enough to fit underneath so when I rotated my tires I had to drive the car up on some 2x8 boards to get it higher so I could get the jack underneath.

    Also, the entire underside of the car is covered by a plastic shield, so to even take a look at the engine compartment from underneath you have to remove about 15 different screws and finagle the shield off. Overall, the performance, comfort and pure enjoyment of driving such an awesome machine outweighs any of the little things I don't like about the car. I feel like most cars are designed to make you feel removed from the road, but my 3-series makes me feel like I'm a part of it, which is what I wanted.

    They also engineer the cars with a level of attention and detail with which I've never experienced with other vehicles I've owned. I think I'm in trouble because now I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to drive anything else! Your feedback has been sent to Cars. I bought this car is July of with 37, miles. I had one small problem with it, my check engine light came on, and it took them a while to figure out what was going on with the car.

    Finally, it was a minor problem. It was a valve in the engine. Since it is the , it has the low profile tires. You would think it would not be good in the snow, but it is all wheel drive, and believe it or not, it is great in the snow.

    The only thing is i don't recommend it for families- the back seat could be a little bit tight to sit back there. Car feels so tight -Love it. I bought this 5 yr old car to a replace a G35X and I couldn't be happier. The G was faster hp v , but the xi has more than enough power, great brakes, very tight steering feel, infinitely adjustable sport seat, and really nice styling inside and out.
