I had a MT 2011 328i for 3 years. It was a great car except for the stiff suspension and the bland interior. I suppose if I could find one with Nav I could add coil overs. Either way, this decision...

Dealers will not code anything that is not standard in the US market. That is to say they will not add features that are already in the software but not enabled for our market.

Possibly. I will go way over the mileage on my current 328i lease and will buy a car next time. I can't afford payments on a decently optioned 328i and even if I could unless the LCI steering is much...

Yes, R & T as said above. Wow did either R & T or more likely BMW pick the wrong configuration for this comparo. The car should have been a Sportline 228 without the track package. Frankly I think...

I would get a well optioned performance pack GTI over the R myself. The R is about 400 pounds heavier which to me is an issue. The regular GTI is very nimble and handles great. While RWD is...

You get used to it. Modern emissions equipment and a heavy flywheel are my guesses as to why this is. Takes a bit of patience.

Yep. Locked.

To the OP, I did not see your original content but I can imagine that it was not a good topic to begin with. Keep in mind we are here to discuss the BMW F30 vehicles on this forum.

No. Can any car be towed with all 4 wheels on the ground? I don't think so. The drive wheels need to be off of the ground, right?

Or even better, a base 4 door GTI. Almost as fast (fast enough) and size smaller but a great car.

I don't think content is a consideration for many. Why buy a 320 and add options like power seats, etc to equip it similarly to a 328? The beauty of the 320 is it's most of a 328 for $5K less.

Thank you for your comments. 184 BHP is not a lot in a 3400 pound car but that's the engine you chose and the consumption is low.

Unfortunately cars will never again be like your E46. Safety,...

Correct and based on a Car and Driver test of the new Land Rover Discovery, it's best to wait for the new 2.0T rather than opt for the Ford engine.
