The 228i coupe is a bit snug in the cockpit compared to my E90. The last great BMW steering, IMO, was in the E90/E93. The 228i steering does nothing to change that opinion. Also the steering wheel is...

The iDrive is so much easier to use now than I remember it back in 2005.

It took merely seconds to find and adjust the setting to "chassis only" for Sport Mode.

However, it's obvious when I...

Changed to Sport Mode (after my last 29.4 mpg fill-up-mostly highway, AC on) after a total of 607 miles driven.

I will never go back to Comfort Mode. The steering now has some some...

Finally! Next fill-up, I'm going to sport mode. The only reason I've been hesitating is the manual says 1200 miles of engine break-in and I only have 600. But I don't care for the light adaptive...

Congrats!! :thumbup:

I can't wait until 1200 miles, so I can switch from comfort to sport and start my real driving! :D

Enjoy your terrific car!

Third fill up today. Elated to get 30.9 mpg. Mostly smooth neighborhood driving 35-40 mph; limited traffic lights.

The thickness of the steering wheel in my E90 with sport package is just about perfect. So is the steering itself-weighty, no matter what the speed of the vehicle. Not a big fan of the adaptive...

The 228i coupe with sport or M sport line and track handling package drives as good, IMO as a Porsche Cayman, but with more trunk space.
