Depends whether you opt for A/S or summer rubber. On top of that, BMW uses different suppliers. My Sport line A/S rubber is the Pirelli P7 as mentioned above.

I don't know. I don't have a DHP equipped car. Bad comparison though as DHP is a huge step up from a base xDrive car so of course the ride is more controlled.

No. Not nearly as crisp to drive as a RWD 704 suspension car but it's hyperbole to compare it to a Camry.

I would look at it this way. A red interior is unquestionably sporty. Burl trim IMO is associated with luxury and is incongruous with a sporty interior color. I have Coral Red and Anthracite and IMO...

I can't recall what I posted but you are probably correct. I believe the modules on realoem are specifically for the 335 not the 328. At least that's what I have read here and elsewhere.

I have yet to see definitive proof that the 2014 328 has Active Sound so take that for what it's worth. I have also read here that the mufflers were changed for 2014 to improve the sound. Again this...

I suppose you are referring to 2014 models. I can't imagine any dealer would go that deep on a 2015. Plus there aren't as many incentives.

I'm not sure how that link supports you. Look at the size of the samples which are statistically insignificant. And even if they were large enough the range from hi to low is in favor of the N20.

There is no way a DI N52 would reach the fuel economy figures of the N20. None. And it would be slower. We will not see eye to eye on this but I will say that after almost 20K miles in my F30 328i, I...
