  • Maintains the necessary performance requirements to wear the BMW badge
  • Aesthetic interior wood detail--high quality
  • Ergonomically logical with convenient ambient lighting at night
  • Comfy seats
  • Petrol police beware!
  • CD optional--for 50k there should at least be an in-dash single disk player
  • Low ground clearance: 7.1 inches. (RX300: 7.7, M-class: 8.4, Escalade, 8.4)
  • Oddly placed brushed chrome highlighting on door panels
