Exterior styling isn't bad IMO. The interior is less retro than previous years which is a good thing to me.

If you wanted, or needed AWD then what would you choose? Civic is obviously out.

Good point. I sat in the Mini Countryman at the NY auto show and really liked it. Obviously I will see a big drop in HP compared to my 340 but it's not like I really use that HP anyway. :rofl: I...

I think the Audi S3, or RS3 is a better comparison point to our cars. I say this due to options as well as driving fun. I only look at AWD models so I'd be comparing Golf R.... S3 makes more sense...

I agree with what you wrote however there is a certain level of expectation when moving from an older 3 series to a newer 3 series. The F30 was a drastic switch from previous 3 series. Too drastic...

I can weigh in on this. I leased my first BMW in 2011. It was a 335i coupe Xdrive Msport. I loved it so much, and hated the F30 in 2014 when my lease was up. So I bought out my lease on the 2011....

There is a sunload sensor but it's in a terrible spot.

Next time that happens try leaving it in auto mode but force record to on versus Auto recirc. That normally helps quite a bit. The system...

My dealer asks me if I want it setup and does it pretty much the day I take delivery of the car. My dealer does provide very good service as compared to what I hear about on this forum.
