Hydraulic steering vs. electric...hmmm, I'd say drive the new F30 and current E92 and decide for yourself. Would you really allow a public forum to sway your decision anyway?

I had this same problem. If you are gonna lease or get rid of the car before the warranty goes out than a F32. If you plan on owning the vehicle for quite some time than the E92 is the way to go. They have been making the car since mid/late 2006, so they have had a lot of time to work the bugs out of the car. The coupe is a timeless shape that will not go out of style anytime soon. Not to mention you can shop around and get a lightly used one for a lot less money. I have an MSport 335i that MSRP for $55k, I bot it with 8 months and 9k miles on it for $39k, the terms BMW and value are seldom used in the same sentence, but in this case it worked.

Without a doubt, wait for the F32.

Otherwise, how would you know what you should do?

As we've seen NOT MUCH MORE than spyshots of the F32...NO DETAILS of it, and a potential release date (U.S.) of mid-2013...are you SERIOUS about this question? How could anyone make a decision on this forum?

Then again, perhaps someone will come through with SECRET details of all of its specifications (I doubt it) and you can decide. I've got some really interesting details on the 2015 car, but I've been sworn to secrecy.
