I think BMW did a good job on the suspension on my car, particularly when you consider I have the 19" wheels mated with ultra low profile run flat tires that look like rubber bands. I drove it down from PA to SE FL on I-95 South this summer and it was great on the highway. I didn't have any bump steer and I wasn't feeling beat up or exhausted like I did when I drove my ZO6 back up on my return trip.

Guessing Koni had made an embarrassing impression.
BMW is good about refinement - they move on issues with the velocity o'turbocharged snails, eventually coming to a conclusion.
The fact that the 335i suspension is able to drive well on the highway and also perform extremely well on the back roads is quite a feat, IMO.
It may not be as good as what is on the M3, but the M3 suspension should be better.
