It's still a sport sedan and family car. It's not a sports car although that's what many want it to be.
I don't think it's just the size I'm addressing. Actually, I've driven a few E90 loaners and while bigger, I didn't get that E39 boat-like feeling from them. I liked the size and think I would have been perfectly happy if they left E90 dimensions and fixed the interior and exterior design flaws. I really don't like the further incremental increase in wheelbase/size from E90 to F30 and am thinking it will feel more E39-like.
