Me too and had a few Hondas and Acuras. The Bimmer is a great ride but I've heard they can be high maintenance.....Just joined the forum...just picked up a blk/blk EX-L w/Nav this past weekend. Got out of a BMW 545 and not missing it (and the high maintenance bills) one bit! My first Honda (the wife has an Acura MDX)
and am quite impressed with how smooth the ride is and how sweet it looks!
You've picked a winner in the CT -- Enjoy.
