I'm currently driving a 328i Sport Model loaner while my 335d is in the shop. I didn't read all of the posts, but I have to agree with the OP. The car just doesn't feel that nimble. It's fast...

Possible problem with fuel filler neck?

I've got a 2011 335D and have had numerous problems with over filling (pump doesn't turn off) when re-fueling. This has happened at different gas stations in the Bay Area and Southern California. ...

Maybe they could find you a low mileage CPO? If you look at AutoTrader there are still a few new and very low mileage examples for sale.

I think it depends on the build date. The standard Apple cable never worked on my 2011. The dealer gave me an integration cable when I bought my car and it works great using my iPhone and iPod.

Ditto with me. Overall gas mileage is lower. City mileage seems the same, but freeway mileage is about 2 MPG less. Performance seems good, but the shifting in noticeably different.

Diesel was $3.97 tonight in Santa Cruz, CA. Regular was $3.99.

If the economy ever picks up, we could see higher prices.

Just curious. Where is the premature wear on the seat? I have the grey interior, and the ribbing on the driver's side seat is suspect after 30K miles (I bought the car with 15K miles on it).

About 6K or 7K miles since the last oil change. Guessing that they didn't fill it properly last time. If it happens again, then it's something else.
