HUD and digital dash are great, pano roof is really good and doesn't impact headroom, rear space is colossal and, with the seats down, it has more load capacity than a 5 series estate or the wife's X3.

Exterior - Rear camera is really useful, Active headlights are powerful and effective, folding mirrors are very handy.

Driving experience - I don't tend to hurl it round corners (too old for that malarkey) but when you hustle it, it's deceptively quick and handles extremely well for what is. essentially, a 7 series hatchback.

Overall - For once, a BMW with an exceptional level of standard equipment. Quick, comfortable, immensely practical and, if you buy an ex-demo (mine was a 6 month old BMW Group car with 4,700 miles), incredibly good value. Mine was 65k list and I paid 35k.

And....the only thing that frustrates me is that with iDrive 6, although I can connect both my phones, only one can be connected to 'Telephone' at any time.
Excellent feedback. I "almost" pulled the trigger on a car in California this weekend (I would had to have it shipped 1,500 miles), but decided I'd wait a bit. It was white, M-Sport, Driver Assist Plus (all pre-requisites of mine), plus rear-setback adjustment, etc. It basically had everything except the comfort seats and the DHP.

I decided to hold because I'm basically still not 100% sure if I want the 640i GT, a Tesla Model Y, or get another S90 (which are now available in the U.S. with the R-Design package, which was NOT available MY18).

p.s. It is UNBELIEVABLE to me how many GTs were ordered in the U.S. WITHOUT the Driver Assist Plus (Adaptive Cruise). I mean seriously, on an $80K car, who would get it without this $1,700 option that comes standard on even the most basic Toyota? I refuse to consider a GT without this, and so it seriously limits my options.
