I find a 4 second differential hard to believe. I like the M235 and especially am interested in what comes with the M2. I hate to comment on which one looks better because I love the new lines of...

Wow, way to be positive on the guy's new car purchase. He really likes the car and he bought it, so how about something postitive or encouraging?

To try and answer both your questions. Steptronic is BMW's term for automatic. As opposed to a DCT, or SMG for example. BMW makes a great system, well, technically I think ZF makes the...

Obviously have the car checked out. In the end, it all depends. I'm on my 4th BMW and three of them I owned outside of warranty. They've all been great, but I also took great care of my cars. ...

Correct, in D mode, paddles will still work, but will reset to automatic mode after a short time. Makes it handy for quick downshifts to pass or even to slow the car.

BMW, and in general most car makers, won't put lots of instruments in lower model cars. There is some sense of prestige I guess with more instrumentation. Even my 335 didn't have any kind of boost...

I agree with most of the above. Poor left lane use bothers me, but not to the point of road rage. My car can be around a car like that in a second and to a degree, i enjoy that pass. Just another...

Don't forget Estoril Blue is NOT a new color. My 2000 M Roadster was estoril blue. Estoril Blue has traditionally been an M color, so not as common. It was a great color. I sure do regret selling...

I haven't driven the 228, just the 128 and 328. Previosuly owned a 335 (same engine as the 135) Also did some track time in a 135. I'd pick the 135 alone for the engine. Not sure about the...

I guess I'll go ahead and say it. If you're too lazy to search, don't want to find similar cars to drive, and you think they (DCT and step) are functionally equivalent, then why bother with this...

Might not want to call it an "SMG". I think the e46 M3 was the last BMW to have an SMG transmission. If that's what the dealer called it, s/he's an idiot.
