A E90er on another forum is near 300 000 miles (500 000km) simply following the CSB (until it stopped!).

The oil religion has to stop. :)

The point of having LL01 oil hardly makes sense.

This oil was approved for very long oil change interval (32000km?) and was a fit for BMW's recommendation of 2 years/25000km. The oil changed...

Way to go! (except I would prefer 18" for me). Lowering is a sine qua non mod for me having a F30.

DIsagree. I know about different pistons but I wouldn't be surprised if the turbo pressure is less on the 320i (they have the same turbo)

Don't be fooled.

There is no optional equipment for BMW "DNA"; in all cases but F8X, lack of steering feeback and rear suspension uncertainty prevail. Shame.

On top of that, another call for a 400$ tie-rod end (including alignment).

There is no reason to believe that F30 will be more reliable than the E90.

Now double-pissed off. :bigpimp:

A Golf R is no competitor to even a 320i... still a glorified econobox that you'll want to upgrade sooner or later.

Somehow true.

I'd like a smaller manual car like my E46 was.

In its time, the E46 was already considered porkier than its predecessors.

No wonder that modern E90/F30 are considered midsizes...

*Most important*.

That is full of hope! Finally a F30 that I may live with. :thumbup:

Now if only the LCI F30 would feel like 90% of the E90.... pre-LCI feel like 70%.

My experience with Continental DW(S) is that they are *soft*, ordinary for handling.

Potenza A970AS are MUCH better. Couldn't be more pleased.

As much as I have a thing for BMW I wouldn't have twice the same car platform. I suggest an Audi A6 or a heavily discounted CTS.
