What's "everything else"? Great ride, A/c, heated seats, great brakes, fantastic torque?? When zooming down the road, one does not pay much attention to the cruddy plastic and grade B leather.....
BTW..we have both, an E93 (hers) and a Z06 (hers and mine). There is totally a different mindset when driving one vehicle or the other, as they are both sporty, but in totally different ways. Both cars have been tracked on HPDE events. One is like "this is really great..let's go flat out" and the other is "Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!..Crxp! Let's do that again!"
PS: I am sixty five and have owned and driven everything from VW's to Volvos, BMW, plenty of GM's, Nissans and even a Lincoln Mark VII (cool!). The Z and the E93 happen to be the nicest to own and drive.

The 2013 3 series loaners that I have had are just not right!
2011 E93 335i "Sport"
M/T, PPK and the usual gaggle of options, but for kicks, see below...
