I'm loving my F30 328i with the 6MT. It's my first BMW and I feel like the power is there from the moment I mash the peddle on the right. There is a noticeable difference between Comfort and Sport...

I just wanted to say that my wife and I had an amazing time at our PCD this past Monday. Our day played out much like many of the reviews I read on this forum in the past. This is our first BMW and...

If the OP's dealer is anything like mine, they order almost 100% auto's. It's no excuse for the mistake, but I can see how it could happen. My CA told me that "no one" buys manuals from them, Well...

I find it interesting that the product's performance increases are based on a 5.4 second 0-60. It leads me to believe the test vehicle was not running stock tires and that anyone expecting to see a...

I went with the 6MT, even though I did like the auto I tested. Here in Tampa you can't find a manual on a lot. I've driven MT's my entire driving life and wasn't quite ready to quit yet. I have a...

To be clear, I am a tech geek, I just choose to avoid integrated options, because they lack flexibility and will be "old" and unsupported quickly. The 3 series offers a USB port and Aux, meaning I...

This is why I steer clear of in car tech add-ons, like nav. The technology is deprecated the minute its available to consumers, and I like to keep my cars for much longer than that.

Thanks, that sounds like the same limitation I was informed of. I never counted on being able to stack the deals, but I didn't want to throw away free money if it was there.

This looks like a car that would sit on a lot for quite a while. Throw a six speed in it and you may never sell it to gen pop.

Thanks. I did join the BMWCCA, but not soon enough to qualify for the rebate for this car. One of my neighbors has been to some of the autocrosses and told me they were a lot of fun.

I've never had a problem with TO bearings. I'm not opposed to changing the way I sit at traffic lights to gain the benefit of the auto stop/start. I suppose if my car had a heavy clutch, I wouldn't...

Maybe I'm the oddball, but I don't typically sit at a stop light with the clutch out and shifter in neutral. With my driving habits it looks like the car would rarely shut off.
