In reality none. I just like that a DCT actually uses clutches. Not a practical advantage, just a romantic one.

There's no easy answer to your questions. 3 series BMW's are obviously more than ever designed to reach a broad market. At least the E90 with it's ride flaws had accurate steering and handled...

Do they? The recent reviews Iíve seen are cars optioned with the biggest wheels and stiffest suspension. The complaints are about the ride quality.

Possibly. Isn't the Panamera a 7 series competitor though? By the way you can pretty well load a M550i for $80K. A lightly optioned Panamera AWD (the M550i is AWD) is about $100K.

Don't newer V1's have junk detector software? Maybe this only works on X, K and Ka bands. It's an issue with all radar detectors as the sensors run on the same frequencies as police radar and laser...
