The interior felt really cheap but it was fast and I didn't like the steering too much. She kept making remarks about my car about how she looked at them but the M was too slow and ugly!! As such, I didn't sell her the house!!!
2008 base version is supposed to be markedly improved in interior and steering, as well as new LS3 engine. See the blurb in R&T this month. Not for me, though, no matter how much a "bargain" it is.
