I agree the new 3 will still be one of the most driver oriented family sport sedan out there. But its value to an enthusiast is less than before, while its design caters more for "what the market wants."

I wish BMW can make a four door 1 series for the US market. Of course the exterior styling of the 1 series has to improve a lot for me to get in one.
As an enthusiast I don't know if the F30 will have less value to me. Frankly, when I first saw the pictures when it was introduced I immediately lusted for one. Other than the question about the steering and the different engine character which I can easily deal with, it's better in every way than the e9X series IMO.
