The interior styling is more modern looking, but it also feels like they took two steps back as far as quality/materials go.

E90: 2006 - 2011 = 6 years
F30: 2012 - 2018 = 7years

I recently test drove a 440i Msport with the 8 speed auto and it felt really solid. The acceleration was great, it was smooth and responsive with little lag. The steering is numb, yeah, but other than that it felt just as solid and we'll balanced as my e90, I didn't take it to the track or anything but it was pretty good. If it wasn't for my wife, we might have bought that car but she and I both felt it was too similar to my current e90. I might get one here in a few years.

It really sounds like people don't like change. The e90 was the bench mark car it not?

The f30 styling is way nicer. I'm sure the handling difference is something you will get used to.

Just like when you go with new wheels and tires from stock to +2
