My 07 328 still bullet proof after 128K miles. Soon to be history, however, as a new F30 340i is on order.

Sounds like the 340 gets mostly high scores. The only potential negative is the steering and here, we have multiple views, some of the negatives sounding like nits. Maybe if you are going to track...

Right. Both the 800 number and the website are of little use. Your CA will have the most up to date info the fastest.

It sure did when I did a back to back comparo right after Xmas. 3 series definitely had more usable room in the back, especially toe space under the seats, no matter how I adjusted the front seats.....

Your dealer wants to sell you a car as quickly as possible, hence the "rest of the car is the same" comment. While none of us have yet to see any road tests of the LCI models in the car mags, the...

I'll let you know. Not worrying about first year B58. If I am wrong, I will say so.

Very nice! Do you know if that is Mediterranean Blue with Oyster interior (as I am assuming)? Going to talk to my CA about a new 340 tomorrow.

Looking forward to the first road tests and drive reports. Especially interested in commentary on how the B58 compares with the N55 in terms of drive feel and overall performance.

I doubt that we will much (any?) changes from '15 to '16 4GCs. LCI will probably be held for the 17's. But since the F30 will get its LCI and at least a new six (B58) for the 16's, we should have...

So they are going to dump it after a year and replace it with the B48. Going to be interesting to see how that motor unveils itself. Big shoes to fill from the N20.

Yep, cutting out one Big Mac per week would pay the difference in cost of regular vs. premium fuel and also keep all those Bimmers suffering with cheap gas much happier.
