I guess that when BMW does product evaluation clinics they invite more people like you than people like me...

I think I have noticed the E82's less than perfect interior "more" as time has gone this is my second one, so a different and refreshed interior, plus a new exterior, will likely keep me from complaining too much.

But you make a good point--in fact my mom has a Kia Forte, which was about 20 grand, and her interior isn't any less nice than mine. And my 135 was 43K. So it's a valid topic to discuss for sure...
