I've been following this thread since my post #121 on January 16th.

My wife and I recently chose a wagon instead of an X3 when we decided to downsize from the series of 5 sedans we had been driving. I wanted the car to be particularly appealing to her this time. What...

Me too, on my 2014 328xit. Far better than my 2012 535xi, which was noticeably rough and "un-BMW like." Looks like BMW has been working on this.

What specifically is wrong with your 3-series driving performance? I quite like mine. I particularly like the nimble feeling compared to my previous 5's.

Actually I think that's X3's, which almost always have soccer moms for drivers. I don't think they even know about BMW Sports Wagons.

Seems odd to me that the OP would waste his time on a forum for cars (BMW's) he dislikes. Hope he is contributing to the Mustang forums.

Perhaps he has a position in Ford, too.
