I still don't get what the issue is. I did some reasonably hard pulls even before 1200 miles (shifting at about 4500 max) and never noticed the lag he's referring to.

If it's really that...

It's statements like this that make me hate the internet.

Provocative, broad brush, nothing to back it up.

How about elaborating on your bold statement.

Downshifting saves your brakes, not gas. Mileage is directly related to rpm's, and downshifting causes your rpm's to go up, not down.

Doesn't Eco pro have even less sensitive throttle response than Comfort? This equates to better mpg for passing, lane changes, etc on the highway.

In fairness, not just a little bit extra. The packages are not cheap, and could easily justify getting the base, depending on what the ceiling of your budget is.

But it comes with a price. The various packages ain't cheap... and if you get NONE of the options, the car is a bit bland.

Got the car back yesterday, it's fixed.

They said they took the tail light apart, then reassembled it correctly... something about incorrect assembly causes the problem.

The entire lens housing, the one housed in the trunk lid, sticks out about 1/4" and won't snap back into place.

All of these "doesn't handle well enough" comments need some perspective

The F30 may not handle with the same level of feel as previous 3's... And I'm not arguing that, as I'm certainly no BMW expert. This is my first 3 (sportline), and I haven't spent enough time with...
