I have now been in the 328 wagon for 5 months and really warming up to it. I think the seats sit too low personally but use a cushion to raise me up. The driving in snow is quite performance like...

Snow performance

Yes to the squiggly line button as that is necessary to activate for sure when ascending a steep hill. Gives you much better linear power. On the descent, I turned it back on but after a long steep...

No. of course not

No way Quakbury. The seats are not bad, but not great either. Compared to Audi they don't go up as far, are boring for comfort and support (Sport seats are too firm). In EU where I have rented...
