Apparently, to software.

Some notes. The Sport tire is the a new 5000 runflat, not a 5000M runflat. Doesn't really make much difference. The regular 5000 has a 3.9 on Tire Rack for buy again and is not considered a high performance tire. A real shame considering the new Corvette gets a run flat Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP. However, that tire is an inch shorter than a Q50 tire.

The car is very nicely trimmed. Sport seat is more comfortable but my 5'2" wife found the thigh support uncomfortably long.

The trunk (with spare) seems very small. Very low. Barely enough for a shopping bag standing up...if that. If the spare tire isn't there, the fold down rear seat is way above the trunk floor.

While the wheelbase is the close to the size as an E-class (112.2" wheelbase vs 113.2", 71.8" width vs 73") the interior felt a lot narrower.

It doesn't appear that the dealers have ordered many cars with the Technology Package that includes the safety equipment.

Yeah, I was very surprised at the number of base models they had with only Nav.
And vinyl upholstery. However, I was also shocked how many E-class models had their vinyl—MB Tex in the US, Artico elsewhere—on the lot. And for nearly all their SUVs. $80k and $90k SUVs with vinyl interior.

That's what I keep telling people that gripe about not getting leather by default in this price range. Nobody does it in this class. It's not even an option on the IS 350 F Sport.

Personally I believe leather should be standard but when the Germans get away with selling vinyl in a 50k car, everyone else follows suit.

The fake leather looks fake too. It shouldn't be an option. Cars like the Buick La Crosse don't even have a fake option.

While on vacation in Boston, we went to dinner with a friend, with him driving. We sat in the back of his 335i, and I was surprised at the quality of the leather - it was very hard, and not comfortable at all. Is that BMW's normal?
