Im supposed to take delivery on my car in two weeks (so excited), but if the ride is different I might tell them to order my another F30 with DHP.
Curious to know if anyone has an experience driving both an F30 i and xi, and what there thoughts are?
Even though you jacked my thread, I can give you the answer you are looking for.
First the F30 335 you test drove, was it the sport model? If it was not, and you liked the ride then you should not have a problem without the DHP package on your car.
If it was a sport package then it means it had the sport suspension, your 335 xi will have a softer ride.
f30 335 xi sport models do NOT come with a sport suspension (this sounds stupid but its true) I went through the same thing and had my dealer re order the car with DHP
The only way the suspension actually changes for the driver with the comfort/sport modes is if they have the DHP package.
Now I am betting that your going to have your dealer re order the car, which sucks because now you have to wait all over again.
