OP, agree with much of what you say, and ignorance can be blissful. I test drove 09s, 10s, and 11s but without extended time in those cars I cannot say the EPS is numb compared to the HPS. I also don't find the ride too comfortable. I just throw it sort mode and feel it tighten up and I just grin,grin,grin. I've been a fan of BMWs ever since my first time in a 2001 M3 but haven't owned one until recently. All my knowledge was theoretical not practical. So for me, the F30 is one of the best cars I've ever driven. Would I feel different if I came from an 07 335i instead of a 12 legacy gt? Probably. But I didn't so weeeeeee!!!

That said, and I'm not trolling, but I originally went for a 2013 328 sport line but was left unimpressed with the 4cyl. on the test drive. Turbo seemed laggy on takeoff. Acceleration was fun after 30 but for 48k, I felt like I should be blown away. (Hence why I went with the 335). First one I tested was an 07 and holy ****, I was speechless. Knew I could never own a 328 after that. Then I test drove a 2009 M3. Yikes. I almost got talked into a lease on a 2013 lime rock edition. Wife would have deballed me and tossed me in street if I brought that home. Glad I went with the F30 335i.
