Mein Auto: 2014 335i M-Sport RWD
We agree that the Adaptive M is needed on an xDrive car. The question is: Should the OP avoid this particular 335i because it's lacking Adaptive M? I say yes merely because he is used to M3's for what looks like the last 10+ years.


If one has been driving M3s, a 240 HP may be a little light. If he only drives a dozen miles through the twisty roads, the Horse Power on a 335 would be closer to the M3 and the manual would be nice. The question with the suspension I would ask is not the shortcomings of the base suspension on the F30 or its relitivity to other F30s, but relitiveity to the suspensions of the previous E30, E36 or E46 that he had before.
