I still want a 328 but I just don't want to spend that much money. The M performance suspension is expensive, then I want the brakes, tires and so on. I wish they offered a stripper M sport (kind of...

Not really. The 2015 models have more power (re-tuned engine) and the newer manual. Both cars equipped with a manual transmission would be pretty close in a straight line but the ATS would have an...

Fair enough, I was just referring to my experience with E90 X drive system. Ill give the DHP X drive a shot but I highly doubt I would get one over the RWD model.

Perhaps with the M performance dealer installed suspension but then the cost difference between the two becomes even larger and still no mechanical LSD. I know I am in the minority here but I prefer...

Well it also all depends of what you want of out the car. A great daily with some potential and fantastic lease deals? Then the F30 is as good as it gets. I personally don't have the luxury to own a...

Agreed, lol. Summer tires are absolutely useless in winter, even with a good AWD system. A/S are bad too, speaking from first hand experience.

I have to disagree with your statements. I drove a 335Xi, 328Xi and 328i sport (all E90 if that matters) and there was a rather noticeable difference in the way each car behaved. The Sport package...

It took me a very long time to find a CPO RWD Sport Package E90 328. I also think the X drive takes a lot away from these cars and I don't think I would ever buy a X drive BMW sedan. I currently have...

The ATS is a better driver's car than the 3/4 series but I don't think you can get great lease deals on them. The resale value is lower than the 3/4 series.

I say go for it. I personally like the interior and exterior design a lot more than the 3/4 series. The interior materials are very high quality and the layout is more modern. They re-tuned the 2.0 T...

It is a dealer installed "tune" so to speak. I don't think you can add it on the BMW website, same way with the BMW Performance exhaust.

It is common sense. The 328i is lighter and slightly better balanced, while the difference is not significant it is still there.
