Plush, comfortable interior

And I felt as if all was right sitting in this truck-like car thing. The interior is beautiful.

The white Merino leather seats are plush and comfortable. (Though I would never own a vehicle with white interior anything due to Dunkin' Donuts coffee sloshing and Big Mac lettuce spillage.) The M seats provide extra bolstering for hard corners.

Of course, this being an M, BMW feels obligated to remind you why you plunked down $90,000 for it. There's the M door sill, M steering wheel, M floor mats, M head rests and the M center console. Forrest Mars never saw this many M&Ms, and he holds the patent for them.

But even with the so many Ms around the cabin, nothing feels in your face or overstated. The cabin feels luxurious with a touch of speed. The lines are long and horizontal and covered in leather. It's stable and there's a simplicity inside that calms your nerves at the times you need a steady hand and confidence, like barreling between two big trucks.
