Compare the noise that the F31 makes in Sport or Sport+ mode vs the 428xi in all modes. My guess is that they will be similar.

I have a 2008 328xi Sedan (E90) and a 2014 328 Wagon (F31) so I have a close comparison. The E90 has a much firmer ride and the steering has more feedback. This car has been extremely reliable and...

My F31 Wagon is my primary vehicle which is used all year round (x-drive is great and needed in the mountains) and our 2nd car is our "old" 2008 328xi (ED).

If your car is newish it could simply be the burning of the paint on the exhaust system. When driven "harder" in sport mode it probably caused more exhaust heat.

Just got back from a 7 hour road trip at interstate speeds (65 to 80 mph). Averaged 28 to 29 mpg for a x-drive wagon with a huge cargo box on the top. Without the box I should easily break 30+.

Does anyone know if the "Sports" kit will work with x-drive? It lists F31 which is available non-USA in two wheel drive, but I would be interested in a kit for a USA F31 (x-drive).

I needed a wagon so I had no choice and had to take the AT. I would have specified a MT if given the choice! The AT is not bad but it does not give you the control of a MT even in "manual" mode.
