I actually taco'd a wheel on my previous 335i up in LA (Hollywood) after I whacked a pothole. The road conditions there are scary. But to say every F30 is inappropriate for the country as a whole...

Have you considered going an entirely different direction and getting a 4x4 for your weekend toy? I highly recommend a Wrangler Rubicon. No worries about poor road quality :)

I can't directly answer your questions but for certain, my 997 has a much firmer ride than my E90 w/ Sport had along with a lot more tire noise. "Raw" is a good way to put it; there's not much...

I put a JB4 on my old 335i. I waited until after the warranty expired to do so. Even so, I rarely used it: I kept it in bypass mode 99% of the time. The JB4 didn't reprogram/recalibrate the...

Welp, rumor has it that within a year or two you'll be getting a turbocharged flat-4 in the Cayman and Boxster. They'll sound like Subarus but should have pretty good scoot up there at elevation. ...

No, you shouldn't! Drive the doors off the car and enjoy it. If you're a worry wart, your local Toyota dealer would be happy to sell you a Camry.

I think you should test drive a Hellcat Challenger when they come out. No issues there with lack of acceleration or wimpy engine sound. :)

Bah... My '07 335i did not disintegrate after I passed 50K miles. Sure, it suffered the water pump/t-stat problem but very little else went wrong with the car up until 92K when I sold it.
