I was questionable at first - Also one who really studies and stares down lines. I gave it a few weeks of thought. At first it seemed very brash and almost too fresh, but once I realized how similar it really is to the E90, you can see how severely improved and updated the lines really are; especially w/ the M Sport. One of my favorite things about the whole F30 is the M Sport rear bumper, it just adds that fat butt character and looks amazing.
All in all, I put my money where my mouth is and ordered one as soon as I saw that M Sport character tied in to the equation. Coming from an E92 M3 to boot!! The V8 is a bit too bulky for a city setting, even with the canyon roads and swooping valley roads. I miss my smooth N54 from the first 335i. Even though my HPFP exploded at 4400 miles
Quite surprised at myself to be honest.. I was "coupe-only" til further notice.. a Sedan? Yeah right.. But the F30 pushed me over the edge, quite easily.
