The F30 will be quicker from a dead stop (nearly the same from a rolling start) and the fuel economy will be 3-6 mpg better as well. The steering is also much much lighter. In my opinion, the HUD...

I own the PE on a 328 coupe and my old college roommate has the IS.

Startup is quieter on the "is", but at higher revs, the volume is reasonably comparable. The PE has a deeper tone.

I would advise taking it down a notch.
