That to me was the one big issue. The other is the brake feel - no comparison to the E90. Of course I don't like the ASS feature as well, but then I hear that can be disengaged, so not that much of an issue. Liked the interiors, except felt that actual material quality was poorer than the E90.

Guess will just have to wait for the next iteration, unless BMW tunes the EPS better in the next year or so.
Did you get in the car and drive, or did you change the drive setting out of it's default to Sport or Sport+.

Like I said, non M-Sport cars I have driven I have not been a fan of the brakes due to the pads and tires. M-Sport pads are far better but wow-they sure do dust fast.
