I think the ZF8 is great, even better than the dual clutch units but still significantly less engaging than a proper 3 pedal transmission. The insignificant performance and fuel economy advantage it...

This is exactly why I skipped the F30. If I wanted a Buick, I would buy a Buick. They need to fix the 3 series ASAP.

You will also likely get your warranty voided, bring the engine out of factory spec ensuring more wear and tear overtime and have to use premium fuel only or it will knock itself to death :rofl:.
