I love my car!

by DHilliard from Dumfries | February 13, 2021

I really love all the safety features and the speed. It is really fun to drive, cool looking and fast. The only negative is the miles per gallon, but everything else makes up for it.

Why buy a BMW?

by TAM from Washington, D.C. | January 08, 2021

I have owned 5 BMW's. My G70 V6 Sport equals or surpasses my BMW's. Luxurious, fast, great handling, comfortable, totally reliable and an incredible bargain. With the sole exception of my C7 Z51 Corvette, best car I have ever owned. Back seat a little tight and mileage around town not great, but fr outweighed by all the car's virtues.

Best daily driver you can get right now!

by Big Brah from NC | December 22, 2020

If you are thinking about getting a G70, just do it!! You will not regret your decision, especially if you get the V6 3.3T Lambda engine. This car is fun, fast, and very well built. The craftsmanship and quality feel is amazing. Everything is real; if it looks like that material, it is that material, no fake stuff!! The engine and transmission is amazing. Although the engine is not a rev happy "over squared" design, it is ready at any notice to shoot up the RPMs and move. The Lambda V6 3.3T in this vehicle is by far one of the nicest engines I have driven. A lot of people complain about the 8-speed transmission being a little slow, but I think it shifts perfectly fine and crisp. The interior is built to last. If you don't require much, you will be perfectly at home with almost too much comfort. My favorite thing is the ventilated seats on sweaty days. My main focus of this review is how the G70 drives. As stated before, the engine has tons of power at any moment, is very responsive, and has tons of passing power/acceleration. No one will ride your butt in this car, just smash the gas and watch them disappear in the rear mirrors! It is amazing for highway travel. It hums at a low 1,500rpm @55mph, and about 1,800rpm @80mph. This engine will not scream at you for making it do its job. Not only is it a highway cruiser, but is super fun on the back roads. You almost always run out of real estate before you have to step on the brakes from accelerating (brakes are great too).I wouldn't say it has snap oversteer, but the front-end xxxxxxin first before you feel the rear slide out, so you can feel how hard you can push it. Maintenance is tricky, but doable. It requires 7.26qts of oil, which is a decent amount. But, if you are smart, you can get reasonably priced parts, as it is shares a lot of parts with Hyundai/Kia's. To change the oil, you have to remove some under panels, which is annoying, but reasonable. It does have a oil filter cartridge, no spin on type, not a huge fan of those. It also is pure GDI, so carbon build-up is possible on the valves. But with just those few complaints, everything is very accessible in the engine bay for a twin turbo V6. SUMMARY: You will mostly likely buy/lease this car and not want to let it go!
