Re: Suspension Feeling Loss - Should we Petition

I had a 2000 Audi A6 2.7T that got great reviews and was a piece of crap from a reliability standpoint. That plus I tried five dealers in three states and never found one that did a decent job. I complained to Audi NA and the ultimate response I got was essentially "we see your had more problems than you should have but we're not going to do anything about it". That's what sent me to BMW, where my reliability and service experience has been excellent. Think I'll ever buy another Audi? No way. But BMW still needs to keep earning my loyalty.

Mein Auto: 2013 335 M Sport, Manual
I agree. I traded in my 2011 335, RWD, 6SPMT, M-Sport and now wish I had bought it. It was the perfect car for me. The F30 is a great car, but the steering and suspension compared to the E90 are awful. The F30 has high limits but doesn't communicate them the way the E90 does. It is no doubt more comfortable, and after you hit 50 or 60 MPH it turns into a proper BMW, still not as tight and communicative as the E90. I am hoping BMW fixes this with the 4 series and continues to improve it so when I'm ready to turn in this one in in 2 1/2 years the new cars drive like BMWs are supposed to.

I just posted a thread, I am receiving Alerts asking me to "Drive Moderately". Really BMW!! WTF!!!!

H&R Sport Springs FTW.
How were the ride and handling before and after you installed the H&Rs? My F30 has the Sports Suspension and I'm thinking about adding the H&R springs as well.

If you're satisfied with the ASS, fine. If you're satisfied with the "Buick" steering feel, fine (you're obviosly not a return buyer or BMW enthusiast). That's OK...the F30 is now a "luxury car" and maybe that's what you wanted and rejected a Lexus?
I've been to Napa numerous times as well.....(so what?)

"obviously not a return buyer or BMW enthusiast"???? This is my 3rd BMW and every one has had performance options.

But since you clearly know me well, I'll defer to you......
