If you order xDrive with M-Sport package, you won't get the M-Sport suspension. Do you really need xDrive in California?

Up-vote from another SF Bay Area fester. Greg is terrific. And SouthWest flies directly to Burbank, which is a short drive from Pacific BMW.

Me too. Lexus's corporate V6 is a mighty fine engine except for the lack of low end torque :thumb up:

Now that Lexus has unveiled a 2.0 L turbo, may be a 3.0 L turbo is in the works as well.

I highly doubt interior quality of 3-er will ever catch up with C-class in F30 generation. W205 is a huge step-up compared to W204 and must have caught BMW by surprise.
