I haven't driven the F30 but my wife did have an E92 and the F10's ride is much softer even in Sport+ mode compared to the E92. If the F30's ride is anything close to the E92, then the F10 will drive like a Lincoln Town Car for you. Many folks who complain about the soft handling of the F10 are usually those who had E90s/E92s/E60s. Folks like the go kart feel of the 3. I personally like the handling of the F10. I myself would not classify it as soft but more of a luxurious ride. However, Sport+ does make things fun. The 2013 F10 M Sport Pack now comes with M Suspension. I have the dampers so don't know how much difference the M Suspension changes the ride. You should go test drive an F10 for yourself just to compare. We all have different perceptions of ride quality.
