Go test drive one for yourself and you'll see what I mean.
I have the same impression. To me, 50% of the BMW driving experience is about the engine visceral feel and growl. Completely tamed with the N20 - this is a dull powerplant. I mean any Toyota or Honda V6 feels more playful.
More than ever, the F30 335i has more arguments going for it compared to a 328i and the big diffferences spells f-u-n. Some will says that it is was the same with the E90 but I disagree. I don't think that the F30 is all bad. After all, it took me a while as an E46 owner just to seriously look at the E90.
