And much to my surprise, I get more thumbs up from the 2 cents, you won't regret it. Btw, I really only like the m sport pkg looks because of front and rear appearance, paddle shifters are a must too. Good luck.

The F30 has so many little things here and there that they make the experience of owning one a complete joy.
Helpful... thanks guys. Any specific notes on hard cornering in the F30? Is it progressive near the limit? Can you feel the chassis rotate from center?

Granted, every mile is not a cannonball run, but it's good to get perspective from current owners and folks familiar with the brand.

Believe me... this is the currently-prevailing thought.

A friend of mine has an F30 335 Sport and we're going to a track event next weekend. I plan to ride along on her laps and am hopeful that she'll let me borrow it for some extended drive time.
