We went from Munich to Lake Como and then to Lyon. If you are a foodie, Lyon is the culinary capital of France. We went to Paris after that but dropped the car off first. I would not drive in Paris....

What's interesting about putting the car in sport (as I often do), is that the steering "feels" heavier but doesn't necessarily have more feel IMO. I've read many reviews, including a recent review...

I leave my rack on during biking season. Taking it on and off runs the risk of scratching the paint. You can see what the rack looks like on the BMW site under accessories. It works well. Trunk racks...

I have 2014 335 and it's not rough at all at idle. Sometimes at idle I can hardly tell it's running. You might want to get that checked out.

I did some research on Beyern a few years back and from what I read they tend to be very heavy. That's not something I want in a wheel. Don't remember the source of the information.
