Very Nice! Switch cars every once in a while and you can give us objective and unbiased feedback about the 4 and 3 and whether you really feel a difference between the two

What I've realized so far:
- In settings the 3 has a drive mode feature which can adjust the sport and sports + settings for either the engine, chassis, or both my 4 doesnt have this.
- In my 4 S8AT is standard my wife's 3 is only a 8AT and seen to shift slower between gears.
- Steering in the 3 is not has tight has in my 4.
- The 3 seems to have a rougher suspension so u really feel the road and bumps more.

Odd, I can adjust this in my 428i GC. Maybe it's in a different menu location?

I think it's because I had one of the first US 4GC production cars. I have also noticed that my wife's 3 also has larger front calipers like the 335 and 435 have and that the clock in the main instrument cluster is to the right not in the center like mine.

And I've looked through every single menu location.

I believe thats the DHP. 3 prob has DHP spec'd on it and the 4 doesn't. I'm not sure about the brakes but if its the size of the 335/435 it should probably be the M sport brakes, but seeing as how the 3 has fog lights, it wouldn't have the M sport brakes. Adding M-sport brakes/19in wheels deletes the foglight for the 3 starting on 2015 models.

Don't think the 3 has DHP didn't see it in any of the specs, window sticker or bmw vin decoder. They r not M Sport brakes just the gray w/ BMW written on them in black. Idk! ..I'll post pics of the 2 to show the difference. Just curious to why they r different since they r both M sport.

Must get confusing in a white winter on which white car to take - no?

hey JC, are you sure that is the part #? I've been looking up 63217161306 and get results for the older e92s... Do our cars use the same bulb as the e92s? Also curious about where you bought these. Thanks again!!
