BMW need to develop a separate sensor system for flat tyre vs just a small drop in tyre pressure. The sensor alert goes off even with a small discrepancy in pressure particularly driving on motorways for some reason. This is very distracting and happens frequently. Only once has there been a puncture which of course we need an alert for but the system is over zealous and over sensitive. A solution is needed. Potholes are a big issue too

The car only has a low mileage but after 17 years travels well, in comfort ant dependable. Had the car since new and very pleased with it. Only drawback is that it does about 22 mpg.
UNRELIABLE AND UNCOOPERATIVE SERVICE. NEVER EVER BUY A BMW AGAIN.IT WAS OFF THE ROAD EVERY FEW WEEKS MOSTLY WITH SIMILAR PROBLEMS . STILL HAVING TROUBLE NOW OUTSDE THE WARRANTY.
Delightful car to drive. Do not like the radio (as it has a mind of its own) or the idrive system.
Good reliable car. Strongly built. Plenty of toys for the boys.
Realy good car to drive.
