Regarding BMW's drivability, it is here and real. My wife's G01 X3 is much more fun to drive than my W166 GLE350 and more fun than a GLC300, or C300 for that matter.

In addition to current BMW models being more fun to drive than relevant comparators, the iDrive system is heads and shoulders better than M-B COMAND. COMAND's successor, MBUX, has had mixed reviews. I have used COMAND but not (yet) MBUX. iDrive is excellent.
