Recent used 911 buyer here...

You can drive a P-car every day if you want. You *cannot* drive an F-car every day, however.

Perhaps then you could explain how the HUD that comes on other cars (ie, Corvette, Chevrolet SS) is perfectly visible when wearing polarized specs?

BMW needs to get with it on this one.

I actually taco'd a wheel on my previous 335i up in LA (Hollywood) after I whacked a pothole. The road conditions there are scary. But to say every F30 is inappropriate for the country as a whole...

Have you considered going an entirely different direction and getting a 4x4 for your weekend toy? I highly recommend a Wrangler Rubicon. No worries about poor road quality :)

I can't directly answer your questions but for certain, my 997 has a much firmer ride than my E90 w/ Sport had along with a lot more tire noise. "Raw" is a good way to put it; there's not much...

I put a JB4 on my old 335i. I waited until after the warranty expired to do so. Even so, I rarely used it: I kept it in bypass mode 99% of the time. The JB4 didn't reprogram/recalibrate the...

No, you shouldn't! Drive the doors off the car and enjoy it. If you're a worry wart, your local Toyota dealer would be happy to sell you a Camry.

Bah... My '07 335i did not disintegrate after I passed 50K miles. Sure, it suffered the water pump/t-stat problem but very little else went wrong with the car up until 92K when I sold it.
