Performance

5 out of 5

I live in Germany so there are no speed limits on the motorway. Only car that I cannot outrun is a 911 and as that is an all out sports car, it's not too bad for a lux car.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Have had the car for 1.5 years now and have had a lot of faults. All have been fixed under BMW warranty.(Thank god) Have had 2 new kats and a water pump, also new cylinder head gasket. BMW say this is not the norm for these cars.
