And that is precisely the point a lot of people that own a E90 or older 3-series models are missing. Today's F30 can be configured to be different cars, always however with a BMW heart and sole close by. That is why I don't get the Audi is better, Cadillac ATS is better etc. I learned this lesson the hard way when I got out of the E90 and into a Mercedes C350.

The C350 was actually a luxury car that handled well with a very vague steering and a slow reacting 7-speed AT. For those that wanted luxury it was perfect. For me it lacked that something that BMW has.

The F30 is the best of all things 95% of the time. That is the main question here. Can any other sport sedan be as good as that to all people?
