- Smooth & relaxing

- I’m struggling to find much…seats could be more comfortable for longer drives, but they’d have to be bigger and heavier so I’m happy to make do.
- BMW Connected can be a bit patchy but I guess that’s down to the mobile network so beyond our control, definitely not EV-specific.
