If u don't track the car & u have no qualms abt the engine being rather quiet (some ppl cannot accept anything but the straight 6 sound) then it's a good replacement, & it'll be a good upgrade over the E90 cos the F30 is smoother riding plus it has a more spacious interior.
Yeah.. giving up on the inline 6 may not be easy for me. But we'll see...
