I bought a 2013 Tech Package ILX in July and think it is great. My second car is a green BMW Z3 that I bought new in 1996 that I also love but, since July, it's spent a lot of time in the garage! The ILX 5.1 sound system is incredible: I seem to be taking the long way home from work every day. Surprised that this car is not more popular. I look forward to learning here from you all.
