If that theoretical car described above isn't your cup of tea, perhaps the 335i is a better car for you. They're M cars. They're not supposed to be for everyone.
The fact that BMW continues to dumb down the M cars for the masses is how we end up engine noise being played through the stereo.
Just my $.02. It's disappointing to see where BMW is with the M cars these days.
maybe the M cars are not your cup of tea. because they simply do not make them that way anymore.
People like the luxury and sports side to this car. Thats where the market is. M cars are now luxury and sports cars. thats the bottom line.
