E90 & F30...

Whats up Forum!
So the wife gets into a car accident in her TSX. Well we all know the hassle that is. The positive side is she got to drive around for 2 weeks a BRAND SPANKING new F30 with 98 miles on for $12 a day. Not bad at all. I took some pics and drove it a couple of times and it's starting to grow on me but I am not completely sold yet.

PROS:
-Great pickup when you step on it considering a 4cyl.
-Interior was very nice, felt roomier and nice accents
-Love the screen
-Sound system sounded great

CONS:
-That shutting off feature at a red light or when stopped felt very weird and my initial feeling is that cant be good for the car. But what do I know, I am sure that the BMW engineers tired them selves out testing it.
-And even before driving I HATE that line on the hood...

I have sometime to go before I am sold completely on the car but it was nice to drive for those 2 weeks. Enjoy fellas!

Here are some comparative pics of my E90 and the rented F30...

I could not agree with you more! The whole front end does not do it for me specially that line on the hood that separates the bumper.

Quick question, on my PC at work the pics look right side up, but on my iPad all the pics were upside down. Can someone tell me how they look. STRANGE.

Thanks,

The pictures look fine to me. All are right-side-up.

had never noticed the line on the hood, but now that you mentioned it it does look bad.

Thanks for letting me know about the pics.

In the F30 forum someone photo shopped the line and removed it, looks 1000 times better. Aesthetically it just doesn't look right to me there is no flow to the lines. Maybe its just me but I cannot stand the way it looks. Here are the 2 pics that were FS.
