- Did not like the Auto Start Stop. I was gunning at a red light and forgot to turn off ASS mode. I felt like a newbee driving a stick and stalling in the middle of the intersection... so embarassing.

- Interior felt plasticky. Both my E90 and the loaner F30 are leatherette. But the leatherette in the loaner felt a lot plastickier.

- In terms of driving (sorry, i'm not expert here), it felt under power compare to mine. With it in DS mode, it just didn't feel the same way as mine.. i guess "lagging" would be the term.
Funny, I had the exact opposite reaction to the 'ette in the F30. Overall, the interior felt el cheapo to me, but I felt like the 'ette was a lot better than what I've experienced in E90 loaners.
