Anyway, I hav read quite a few reviews where ATS kills F30 in the performance/handling area, where BMW 3er ruled for decades...
I don't know why BMW is abandoning its roots! It became a multi-billion dollar corporation with its sporty automobiles. It seems like now you have to buy an M car to get the dynamics of previous lower models. Car and Driver said the E90 is superior to the ATS in every I'm content. I pick the E9X over the F3X as of now. The ATS and F30 both have kinks that will hopefully be worked out in an LCI.

It's good that BMW has tougher competition. (I don't think Infiniti and Lexus will just sit back either) It'll be like a reality check for them. They better make a fix if they wanna keep the 3 series as "the 3 series."
