They are the "habitual complainers" and in most cases also the B/Sers. Read between the lines on the posts and you will figure it out quick enough.

Maybe they're slowing the e92 models? That's a pretty massive dip.

So I started this thread and didn't mean to offend any new F30 owners and am sorry if I did, but I have decided this car is not for me. As one had once pointed out, this was not meant to be the E46 replacement, but that's what I want. I can't will myself or get talked into liking something.

So I will keep my current car, and if the renderings on this link for the 2-series gran coupe are even close to what goes into production, this will be my next car. Hopefully they don't F it up.
