Had a 328 F30 loaner while my E92 335 was in the shop for the wastegates. All in all I wasn't a fan; but as a daily driver the car can make a fair bit of sense. It has the get up and go, relative fuel economy, and felt light, which was more because of the electronic steering. As a weekend or pleasure use vehicle, there wasn't a moment where the car made me smile. There was no steering response, I prefer the heavier steering when driving gets spirited, and the 4 cyclinder engine neither felt or sounded good. My E92 better marries the daily driving and pleasure use than the F30, and for that reason I more appreciate what my car brings to the table.

If my next car purchase is a BMW and the F30 is any indicator of what the next BMW I buy is like, then I'd have to put some money aside for a Porsche to drive on weekends.
Wide open road, wide open throttle.
