I figured this was going to happen the minute I drove the F30.
You are exactly correct. Good post! I too think the E46 3 series variant was the best. Even though I loved my E36 M3 for many years. One of the reasons I went with the 135i as well, even with its flaws. The E90 and E30 missed BMWs mark.
