Welcome to our forum.

It probably does not matter whether you get a 2014 or 2015, the differences are minor and it never seems to be an issue getting discounts unless it's a brand new model. There...

Torque and HP are both important, each has a role. Peak HP is almost always made at higher RPM so cars are weaker in that regard at lower revs. Torque, especially in turbo cars is made at lower rpm...

A bunch of garbage dude. In everyday driving, in the cut and thrust of traffic and accelerating from trouble, torque is king. Your hate for the N20 is coloring your posts and making you look foolish.

In real life driving there's a huge difference between 255 lb/ft at 1750 rpm vs 200 at 2750 rpm. It's a different animal. And yes, there were complaints about having to rev the N52 to make it go fast...

You can imagine all you want. What kind of fuel economy does the N55 with the 8AT get? And forget the EPA numbers because no one achieves these numbers.

As usual you are just spouting your hate rather than being objective. The N20 is a gem, just different from your beloved N52. N52 had plenty of faults. Mainly lack of low end grunt and poor real life...

Thanks. How did you get over $7k off of a $63k car? That is far from normal. Also, we need to know the residual.

I agree that no one should pay $600 on a $50k 328. A good deal is about $500.00 not...

We will see the details. I assume he had a lot of incentives and a great OTD deal, probably well below invoice with the incentives. Maybe MSD's. Need to know his residual and MF too.

But no one in 2014 wants a car as small as the E46, nor one with ZSP that rides so roughly. The F30 328i will outhandle a ZSP E46, will blow it's doors off in a straight line and will do it in a more...

That would be a great deal for a $50K 328i. Would require MSD's and maybe a downpayment.

Do you lease or did you buy the car?

I ask because there are two potential issues with racking up mileage. If you lease, try not to exceed the allotted mileage. Second, you have a 4 year 50,000...

As old as possible. The problem with kids is their height not weight in reference to an airbag going off.

Lexus (in the LFA) and Audi already do this. Give me a break. Porsche does it too. It has become very common in 2014.

BMW shares some part with Mini. I don't think Rover uses Ford parts. It's been a long time (2008) since they were part of FoMoCo.

I'm struggling to understand your comparison. Of course the 240 HP N20 will feel weak in a 4000 pound plus car, especially compared to a 335. The proper comparison is vs the N52 in an E90 328i. Other...

Of course the N20 is going to pale versus the N54/N55. It replaced the 230 HP N52.
