I've owned an E46 328i and am in an E90 335i. I'd love if you could share your opinion on the following:
N20 Engine - I know the performance specs are there, but how's the quality/character/sound of it after being spoiled by inline sixes? Also, outside of character, how does the performance "feel" compared to the N55?
8 Speed Auto - 6 Speed being preferred, but 8 speed being more efficient, is it too many gears and how is the transmission for "enthusiast" everyday driving?
Handling/Ride - If you were able to experience them in the real world, how's runflat integration and did the F30 lose the "aggressiveness" of a Sport Package equipped E90 (i.e. is it closer to an Audi A4 in feel now?)
Overall feel/quality/heftiness - Overall impressions of quality and/or cost cutting?
Thanks so much!
