Beautiful chandelier?! Is that the first/only thing you noticed?

Anyway, it's interesting note the paddle shifters have "-" (left) and "+" signs. Unlike the other paddle shifters (e.g. 3er, Z4), I guess the left paddle is for downshifting and the right for upshifting? I don't really like the electronic shifters, but it's curious to see BMW changing the controls so often. I remember the last time they changed the steptronic shifter up and down shifters (not the paddles), and it confused the heck out of everyone.

Man! The attention to detail on this vehicle is amazing! Lighted exterior doorhandles with texture ribs (which I presume are for your thumb...), the fantastic wheels, deep paint, and stern/purposful-appearing headlamp units with white halo rings. The two-tone ("oyster & black" ?) interior is simultaneously officious and luxurious. I'll leave the shift paddles and auto trans to the point-and-shoot crowd - I'm going for the manual!

Nice job, design team!

..I think the ridges are for "Comfort Access" .. at least it has been a give away in recent cars with the feature.. ~Frost

+1 it`s for the comfort access

and the lighted door handles are part of the light package/abmbient light which is available on other cars as well

I find it amusing that they wrote "Twin Power Turbo" instead of "Twin Turbo Power",now that the N55 has one instead of two turbos.

I like the two engine bay braces, I guess they couldn't use the traditional strut tower brace now that they ditched the MacPherson strut setup. I don't remember seeing any other car with braces like this before.
