435i versus 911 - the $60,000 Question

I generally agree with all of your comments. I took a look at the M235 and it looks to be a slightly bigger and faster 135 coupe. However, it shouts cheap when you sit inside. I usually do not care...

I noticed that the GL was much nicer than the ML and for the money it is a better value over the ML as far as I am concerned. With the previous generation ML/GL, the GL had precisely the same...

I suggest that BJ try Mike Wendroff as well. I remember Jon Shafer saying that Mike was his go to guy for the Northeast region.

I test drove an ML because I am considering dumping the x3. The ML made the x3 look good. The ML had cheap written all over the interior and it rattled over bumps. I am not surprised your impression...

I think I may be able to help given that I have owned or driven most of the cars being thrown around in this discussion. My advice is to get what you really want. While I really enjoy my 435 m...

I agree. I think the 4 looks best in alpine white and glacier silver. It also looks good in black, blue and grey, but silver and white make the car IMHO. We both have the same color.

I saw that BMW has changed the wheel options for 2015 if you want M sport brakes. I think it now requires the 442M wheels in ferric or orbit gray. Some have opined that BMW is doing this to force a...

Steering is fine. Not great. DHP has more adjustments for heavier weight, but I find it to be mediocre in feedback. Keep in mind that I came out of an E92 M3 which had the best steering rack BMW has...

The torque has a noticeable improvement with the MPPK. If you can find an un4gettable event in your area go to it because the 435 they use is a MPPK and MPE car. All I can say is it is worth the...

2015 435 msport test drive

Hmm. My 704 suspension equipped car goes over bumps quite smoothly. It is firm, but smooth. Similar to my E92 M3 with suspension set to sport. I personally did not like the DHP 435 model I tested as...

Your impression of the S4 vs the 335xi mirrors mine. I bet you would have loved an S6....a very nice alternative to the 5 series and much more sporty too.

Have you driven both? The 435xi is IMHO an inferior product to the S4 from a sport and handling perspective. The 435xi lacks a real sport suspension whereas the S4 has a great sport suspension. If...

I can give you my input for what it is worth. I had an E60 535 sport that I loved. I put a ton of miles on it and then traded it in for the F10 535 sport. I hated the F10 535 sport, but managed to...

He makes a valid point though. I think if or not a 3 year old car is "old" really depends on how it was used. Dunderhi and I both drive a considerable amount of miles (although I do close to double...

Ditto. I keep trying to tell people this, but my advice often falls on deaf ears. The only people that know this truism are those that have actually done it like us.
