435i versus 911 - the $60,000 Question

If anything, the 997s and 991s I've driven ride much better than any e90 bmw. Never harsh, never uncomfortable

Yep. I still think the f10 is one of the best looking 4 doors on the market (top 2 or 3). That's why I get nit picky about the little details that were screwed up with the facelift

Hate the centered fog lights too. Pretty sure that's a 2014+ thing (not 2013).

435i versus 911 - the $60,000 Question

Agree on the 2 series interior being a letdown. Fwiw, the 228 msport seems to be the pick of the litter due to lighter weight. A few journalists found it more fun (on the street) than an m4. ...

Yeah - this was introduced in 2014. Not available as a software update (might be possible on an 13 NBT equipped car, but not on a 2012 which has the CIC nav unit).

Finally got my new 550

Congrats! That's one of my favorite interior combos on the f10. Personally I don't have the guts to get a light interior but it looks great.

Is the older f10 also a 550?
