I think the current size F3X/F8X cars are as big as I would personally like to go. I really like the size of the 2 series, but am not sure it would fit my lifestyle anymore.
A few weeks ago I test drove a Bentley Continental GT and then did a few hot laps around a track with a pro driver at the wheel. He got pointed by a couple of Porsches. What was amazing was how unspectacular the ride was. No drama, no squealing tires, but incredible speed and amazing grip for such a heavy car.

I sometimes still carry four adults and our daughter in a full size car seat in my car. It is cramped, but doable in the F3X/F8X cars. Not so sure about a four door 228 or GC M235 though. Maybe in 3-4 years when she is out of the car seat it will work though.
I am 6.2 215 barley fit in the 4 and i am not fat! Don't plan on using the back seat either. I have a SUV for that!
