i have a 2012 cms all4 that i custom ordered to get exactly what i wanted, i tend to keep vehicles a long time, my last purchase was a 1997 gms sonoma p/u that i still have, 290,000 miles later
i plan on keeping the cms all4 for many years
whether you order or buy off the lot, you must get the xenon headlights, the stock headlights are weak at best
absolutly get the winter package, the heated seats have 3 settings, warm, hot and keep the pizza hot on the way home!
the center rail can be ordered as 2 pieces instead of the 1 piece
unless you NEED to fit 3 in the back, i recommend the rear bucket seats, they are very comfortable and very unique, i get more comments on the rear buckets than anything else
at 10,000 miles now, i have had no problems at all
my overall mpg since new is 28.8 mpg, .8 mpg OVER the window sticker, however i get less than the city rating in town but get over the highway rating out of town, my driving is ~60% rural, ~20% city and ~20% highway
i probably could get better city mpg, but it is too much fun to run the gears
i have winter tires on now, and was able to run through 9" of fresh heavy wet snow before the plows came through, that is about 3"-4" deeper than my ground clearance!
even with the winter tires, the cms all4 handles more like a sports car than an suv, more so with the summer tires
go to a mini dealer and ask for an extended test drive, but be aware, if you do you will buy one!
my dad liked mine so much, he bought one 2 weeks after i got mine ... he bought an ex-demo/loaner with ~2,500 miles and got almost $4,500 off list
i got $1,000 off list for my custom ordered all4
any other question, just ask
