BMW is unique in this class in having the engine mounted as far back as possible. There is a neutral fell to the 3 series that others in it's class lack but that in itself doesn't make it a better...

Must be pretty discrete since you just noticed it. I didn't even know it was there until I read your post.

Th M235i has a more powerful engine than the 335i (320 vs 300 HP). But otherwise you are right except the interior is similar, not identical.

I don't know why they and enthusiasts prefer it to a...

Good comparo. I find both the interior and exterior of the Buick to be overstyled and heavy looking. The chrome strip along the rear and the exhaust cutouts are phony looking. It seems that Buick is...

That's true. But of course the 335is model was as sporty a non-M E90 made in that series. The F30 is also not as crisp in general than an E90. But much of this has to do with the vague steering. The...

Not enough. I had a 2008 with 16" wheels and it was bad over potholes and bumps. I also had a 2011 with 17" wheels and it was better (they changed shock suppliers and specs) but not even close to my...

Good think you have tempered your hope. It's not going to happen. EPS systems are more fuel efficient than an HPS system.

Also, you are correct that the F30 dynamics are not as good as in the E90...

A 3800 pound car based on a FWD chassis with 0-60 times over 6 seconds would not excite BMW owners on this forum. No matter what one says, it's a very good Buick sport sedan but not competitive with...

If the BMW had won, there probably wouldn't be a thread.

It's not news as the F30 was introduced in 2011 and we've had this sort of discussion ever since. We know there are better sports sedans...

Where is the info that the 228 beat the S3 around the track? I must have missed this in the video.

KBB reviews? I'm not sure I'd trust them over the typical car rags like C and D, R & T and the like.

It's 10K and has been for a few years. As it's condition based, the 4800 the OP has left will probably change and be closer to 10K.
