My identically spec'd 328i Sport Line came with the Pirelli P7 A/S tires. Good tires for a non-performance all season but a bit slippery due to the low rolling resistance compound.

There's very little real knowledge of what changes will be made. The most recent rumors and I stress these are rumors are that the new engines will come a year after the LCI.

I have 22K on my 328i and have used Eco Pro for less than 400 of these. I didn't buy the car to maximize fuel economy and when I do use the mode it's on the highway.

I don't see the 2 series ever selling in the volume of the 3 series. The 3 and 5 series are BMW's US cash cows. Both have numerous models and appeal to a wide market. Right now the 2 series is a...

How much seat time do you have in a properly equipped F30? I would argue that a Sport Line RWD 328i has most of the qualities you want in a modern sport sedan. It's not a track car and is not meant...

He said he just got a 2015 F30. Why would you question this? Please try to answer his question rather than criticize his choices.

There are 2 differences in the brakes. Less initial bite which does not mean longer stopping distances and the low rolling resistance (hard compound, meant to roll, not stop) tires. Add better tires...

You can easily load a new C350 to over $60K and it also has a 4 banger. Once again, stop living in the past. Modern 4 cylinder engines are marvels and the N20 is sweet.

Therein lies the issue. You won't find something that fits the bill in a sport sedan any longer. Maybe the ATS is the best approximation of a pre-E90 3 series but it has its flaws and polarizing...

I agree with Kafkaesque. You are living in the 1980's in terms of BMW's marketing philosophy. Maybe you are going back to the days of the 2002.

I think the point is that BMW's market is quite happy with their offerings. If there's one thing that's certain, BMW knows their marketing.

Head in the sand. BMW was supposed to engineer the car for the RFT's they provide from the factory. You should not have to spend $800.00-$1000.00 to fix their poor suspension tuning.

Not correct. The suspension wasn't changed until the 2011 models (E90 LCI was 2009) and I can tell you that as an owner of the 2008 and a 2011 that while it was better in the 2011, it was far from...

Hyperbole of course but Google "pothole explosions" and tell me the E90 didn't have suspension issues. It did, there is no debate.
