no problem. The F30 is very spacious. It seems much bigger than the e90 and seems only slightly smaller up front than the e60. Then again, I'm only 5'6" tall.

The f30 does not seem faster due to the n55 engine vs the n54 in the e60 and e90. My e90 335i was a rocket compared to my f30 335i. the e60 is very similar speed wise to my f30.

The eight speed transmission does not make it faster, but more efficient and economical as far as emission sparing and fuel saving.

I loved my e60 but skipping the new technology would always be in the back of mind. So would the memory if my e60 . tough call.
