Are you sure you're looking for a car or do you just need a great CD system, GPS and a nice couch?Hey peeps,
I'm on the fence about either getting the M3 or ISF (leaning way ISF but want to be absolutely sure.) I'd be coming from a 335i, so I'm aware of workmanship of BMW. I would be using the car as a daily driver. On to my questions:
1. The Nav interface; how responsive is it? does it take awhile to load up? is it hard to get it updated with new map data?
Although I have the nav I can't provide an objective opinion since I don't know your benchmark. Besides, nav is not anywhere near my first priority when buying a car. For the most part, I know where I'm going and how to get there.
1a. Manufactures iPod interface, how responsive is it; does that take awhile to load up? how long till music starts playing in the car? does it remember where and what track was last playing?
Don't have an ipod. I'd rather listen to the motor even though I have the Mark L. upgrade.
2. Ride quality; how "bumpy" is it really? some car mags whine like there is no tomorrow about it and some don't even mention it. I believe motortrend had a 2009 video review of the ISF (I think they screwed up the date) and it showed a bit of a bounce but, it did not look that bad. I just like some actual owner feed back.
Ride is fine.
Any additional feed back is appreciated
