Biggest complaint I have about this otherwise great-driving vehicle is the throttle schedule. It's not mechanically connected. It uses a sensor attached to the throttle pedal. You start pushing and it goes an inordinate distance before anything happens, and then when it does, it comes all at once. I almost hit the back of the garage several times trying to get over the little lip at the door.

I took it to the dealer and they said that's "normal" (of course - there could NEVER be a faulty design on a BMW). Well it's not NORMAL, it's a bad design and unsafe to boot. BMW, get your act together.
