See below for a shorter testdrive (in a few minutes in full-HD). Expect a longer writeup in addition to this soon.

They messed up the E-brake like Cadillac did. The engine sounds good from inside : )

Nice review. I noticed the fit and finish is not that good. Right above the start button, the plastic piece has a big gap by the instrument cluster. the exterior does nothing for me it does not look bad but it also does not look great. just looks like a wannabe 7 series. will see if the M looks better.
