I am not trying to be argumentative here at all. That said, if you are happy that the 320 has more "feel" than a Altima then we have different expectations of a BMW - even a base version.

I couldn't disagree more. Numb steering and braking, an engine that can barely get out of it's own way and an interior that is more 2004 Impala are just some of the issues I have with the car.

To clarify, I am mostly looking for responses that speak to the logic of what happened and feel of what the dealer is saying.

Thanks again.

It is a dog, but that isn't the "main" issue. The car is numb to the feel. Someone said it was closer to a Camary than a BMW. They are correct.

My 2002 E46 325 was not a speedster but it was still a BMW. This 320 is nothing like a BMW except the name and badge. it is numb.

Thanks for the timing lesson IAaP. I am now very curious about the BMW VANOS and will do some reading.

Any thoughts on the other numbers pictured in the two screenshots?

Please take a look at these two screen shots from Dash Commander and tell me if you see anything odd. The timing so far advanced caught my attention. I am a noob so maybe it means nothing?
