N20 328i fixed





I kid. Come on guys, the N20 is not really THAT bad. Are we piling up on the 328i this early? Most of us haven't even "heard" these cars in person.

Plus, at least with the f30 328i, there is a fair trade-off to dropping the I6 and the sporty, deep-note exhaust. What you loose in engine/exhaust sounds, you supposedly gain in more precise cornering, lighter front end, MPG's AND you get to keep the 8 speed auto trans, unlike e90 328i. With the e90 328i, it's a loose-loose-loose when compared to the e90 335i. Inferior exhaust, same dead weight, similar gas mileage and that crappy auto transmission.
