Autocar India and Autoblog Netherlands Reviews

Wanted to share two F30 328i review videos I saw on youtube today that I didn't see in this forum from searching:

Autocar India -

Autoblog Netherlands -


My general concerns about this model are handling compromise (compared to E9x generation) and turbo lag but these international reviews seem more positive about the changes made than some of the US responses I've been reading (i.e. Car and Driver). Anyways, this car is definitely on my shortlist amongst 1 or 2 other cars as the uplift in mpg, tech, and design are swaying me.

I wonder about the "handling compromise" - AFAIK, no one has track tested it, track tested it against another car, or taken it onto a known track like the 'ring and timed it out from an independent driver.

Would this count?

BMW has gone soft(er)! Given the much worse road conditions in India (potholes and such) it makes sense that the Indian auto hacks will appreciate this much more. Complaints in the past have centered around the "hard" ride quality of previous BMW's.
