Nice turn out.
Great rides.
I'll have to come out next time.
My 335i Msport looks just like the red one that was there.

The gray 135i looks exactly like my former 135i.
I do miss that car. It's still one of the purest no frills BMW's.
My 335i Msport is nice but a bit too soft in comparison, and now that I've had the
ZF sport AT I can easily say that I wish I would have got the MT instead.
The sport AT is the best AT I've ever driven, but the connection between driver and machine is not the same. Yes it shifts faster than I can, but the functional connection is not there. And my sport AT isn't as smooth on manual downshifts as other F30 AT's I've driven. Often the rev matching isn't as smooth as it should be.
I'm going to have the tech's take a look at it, but I know they will come back with
"No problem found". Unless something is actually broken they don't appreciate issues related to how well something is working, just that it works.

Good meet guys. Hopefully next time it will be warmer and sunny, it'll make for more colorful shots.
