what surprised me even more is how user un-friendly the BMWs enterior is. I'm sure all of the features are easy to use once you've had the car for a bit, but I've driven at least a dozen cars in my life and I was completely lost when I sat down. I had no idea how to open the moonroof, didn't get the stereo right away, and was compeltely confused as to where the headlight switch is. Every other car I"ve ever been in, you always just twist the lever on the left of the steering wheel. Why not in this car?
Lastly, the dash is downright ugly. I'm a huge BMW fan, always have been, always will be, wanted to get one instead of hte civic but I"m 17 and need the reliability (ironic right). But that speedometera nd odomoter and everything remind me more of an '87 Cutlass Sierra Supreme than my Civic or my dad's Mazda. Why doesn't BMW update that? It's ugly!
Just my $.02
edit - scratch that, the hp is way more on the BMW. I was looking at a new 325 vs a new Mazda 3s

No other car, that I've seen in recent years, has plain white on black with plain orange at night. I'm not saying every car should have the interior of an is300, but still.. it's uninspiring.
hey, i still love bmws, or I wouldn't have so many posts on this forum

I'm not saying that the controls are very difficult to understand, they're just not the same as those in the majority of other cars.
