And it's a 335i. At least for the F30, sport/M sport costs less on the 335i since it already has 18" wheels standard.

I'm assuming by glovebox you mean center console. The one in there is powered, but it doesn't seem to provide as much current as most USB ports do. For example I have a portable 2.5" hard drive that...

Nice review. I agree with basically everything you said. It's amazing how the car corners flatter than my E36 but also has a dramatically better ride.

I also agree with BJ that you should get the Dynamic Handling Package, regardless of what line you get. The two suspension damping settings are more useful than I expected, and the variable...

Interesting, I'd never heard of the Nokian Hakkapelita before. Weird that Tirerack doesn't seem to carry them. How were they on dry pavement?

I have an F30 335i 6MT and haven't noticed any unusual vibration in the stick shift (this is compared to my '98 E36 and my parents' 2005 honda accord). But I don't use the stick as a hand rest either.
