I appreciate these responses guys even if we might not agree on some things. I'm sure much of my disappointment is a result of being used to a Cooper S that was fast and handled great.

And since I'm trying to rationalize this purchase for me now, I'm guessing that's what you get when buying a $40K 4-door sedan. I suppose it is some consolation that in this price range and car category, the 328i is as good as it gets. Maybe it is me. Maybe I'm just more of a roadster guy, just didn't realize that till I had already made the jump to this sedan.

On the bright side, come next spring, I can get a neat roadster as my 2nd car. Going to need this sedan for the family stuff eventually. I'm sure when we have kids, with a child seat in the back, the 328i will feel more than adequate cuz I won't be wanting to push it like I want to push it now.

Now my girl was putting makeup on in the car while we were going to a gala the other day. She, as always was running late. She did say that this was the MOST comfortable car to put makeup on. LOL

Next Ride: Boxster, Z4 or SLK?
Current Ride: 2013 328i MT
