Indeed! It is a big jump for you in terms of the vehicle overall length

The main synergy is the 'large hatchback' requirement. there aren't too many around these days.

Of course Your E 91 looked good. I miss some things about mine, it was very "go cart" to drive compared to the F 31-34.

Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Was asked why get rid of the Jeep.... Response is because it rode like a Jeep. Came back to a BMW. Now to work on the road noise on the interstate. This thing is louder than my wrangler was.

Welcome back. Noise from the tires? Which tires are on your GT?

I have the 18" continental conti contacts on it. I went out and checked tire pressure today and found the right side was over inflated by the dealer. Maybe that will have an effect. Just seemed loud and harsh compared to my previous Bimmers.

Had run flats on both previous BMWs but not as loud as this one. Haven't finished testing on all road types but have measured 76 dB on some smoother roads. Will get some driving in this weekend and see how much worse the broken pavement is.
