Like kids in a candy store, those coming off of E90's without iDrive can have a completely different experience with the F30. I loved my E90, don't get me wrong, but my F30 retains 90% of the performance and gains 200% more creature-comforts, a trade-off I'm more than happy to accept.

I'm only on a ridiculously fun twisty road once a month but I can appreciate iDrive integration every moment behind the wheel. It's not an insignificant benefit to owning the car, was critical to retaining me as a customer.
