No, compared to my E60s - 2006 530i, 2007 530i, 2008 535i. My 335i comvertible isn't getting here until next week. I'll replace it with a F10 early in 2011.

The dash material grade is the same/similar to the E69. Negative areas are some of the switches (eg. temp control between the vents), door pulls (cheap plastic vs wrapped material), plastic metal strips (in and out). Some of the tinniness may be down to early production build for these cars, and they may tighten the tolerances a little down the line. The material quality will take a step up (like on the E60) with the LCI in a few years I expect.
