My 328i no-line with 13k+ also seems to settle down without much bounciness these days. Realoem does not list any part# for F30 springs, so it is unclear if MY14 uses different part# vs. MY12/MY13,...

bmwusa does show 335i AT faster than MT 0-60. It is somewhat surprising, my guess is BMW needs to pick specific gear ratios and final drive for the 335i MT to hit certain mpg targets for both AT and...

Also try is to increase the cold tire pressure from 32psi to, say, 36psi(this may help to increase road feel).

It surely can happen, if the odds are low enough the premium paid(lease vs. purchase) for that can be relatively high.

Some previous posts emphasize that at lease end any diminished value hit is taken by BMW, provided the loss is satisfactorily repaired(e.g. repair done at CCRC).

It would be prudent to read the fine prints of the contracts and check for details on refunds and transfers(if any), and double-check if contracts are BMW's or 3rd party ones.

Thanks for the info. The E39 M5 Style 66 8x17 will look really cool on F30(and fits 235/45R17), unfortunately the ET is 20.

From my observation the F30 8AT, while cruising at 50mph, sits at 8th gear most of the time in D mode. Of course it can also be forced into M8 in M/S mode(and still have enough rpm to stay at 50mph).
