The new version of google maps lost the send to car function (among many other things). But the App as others suggest does the job.

To the original poster, I have a sport manual F30 and a Luxury Auto F30. I've have had four e9Xs, just gave back the last E90 a week ago. So I've done a lot of comparisons.

I find the killer mix...

Thanks Tim.

Here is the comparison I was making on the BYO sites. The left wheel is the 320 and the right is the 328. Seems to me the right disc is bigger.

320i v 328i Brakes and stopping power

Can't find good data, but looking at the photos, the discs on the 320i looks considerably smaller than it's siblings.

I find the 328i brakes to be the weakest part of the car, and would hate to...

What I Hate About The Look of the Front of an F30

Is it just me, or is this guy driving through what looks to be Australia (maybe New Zealand?) on the wrong side of the road.

I had considered Safelite and have used them before, but the polarizing makes this way out of their comfort zone. From what I can tell, it's likely it's a dealership fix.

Or call is the M335i.


Interesting that with the F30 the 328i lists the manual as being faster in 0-60, but the 335i lists the automatic as faster.

328i Manu: 5.7s
328i Auto: 5.8s

335i...
