Hello Bimmerfest Community...
I've been in my Mineral White 328i Sport for a week now and don't remember enjoying a car this much. The new 4 cylinder or its progeny, if times proves reliability, could go down as a classic.
It's taken me a while to get back to a 3 series, even though it may be my favorite car platform because while driving an E46 during 2004 the frame came apart at 35 miles per hour. BMW couldn't believe it and bought the car back. A couple of years later a mass 3 series recall was conducted to address this problem.
I'm still very proud to have apparently been one of the first people to stress the defect to the point of failure through reasonable but aggressive driving and survive.
But that's history I won't dwell on, I have extremely high satisfaction with the new vehicle so far but still am considering driving with a helmet and body armor.

Never again anything larger than a 3 series sedan.
