2. Steering feel in Sport & Sport +
3. Double tap latch system to open the hood. I just think its cool.
4. My 2 year old son prefers my car over my wife's "old" 2010 car, so I win at something at home.
5. Quiet ride.

Cons:
1. Very tiny mirrors on the driver and passenger visors.
2. Just ok A/C struggles with my black leather interior and 105F Texas summer.
3. Steering feel in Comfort & ECO Pro
4. Horn doesn't beep when double clicking the locks on the key fob.
5. Ride is a little too quiet for me (328i). I'll need to get an intake and exhaust to give it a little more of a rumble in full throttle.
BMW is not known for ice cold a/c. Black leather in a hot state is a bad idea.

Noise - I actually prefer the quiter ride, this car has just enough.

Steering - do you have the variable steering? I find that it does feel nicely tight at higher speeds and quick/easy at lower speeds. I do not have the sport susp and thus more body roll than yourself (regardless of drive setting) but the variable steering still seems to offer nice control/response.
I do not have the variable steering. I'm getting used to it though... I just came from a car that had much tighter steering than this on Comfort Mode.

My car is Melbourne Red... I just HAD to have it with the black interior & red stitching. I got the leather seats cause they are supposed to breathe a little better than the leatherette, but it definitely takes longer than I would want to cool down the cabin if it was parked in the sun.

I miss the heated seats (had in my old BMW, not in this one), and surprisingly the cup holders that swing out. I do love the navigation, the exterior design, and the roomier back seat leg room.

I HATE the fact that when I start my car it sounds like a diesel. Already took it to the dealership, for the sound and also the goop on my headlights. Both issues deemed not a problem, but I miss my old 323i which sounded way better.

WORST: The engine sound at idle, particularly when cold
Now after 6 months of ownership my Best & Worst has changed:

BEST: The sports seats are so supportive and comfortable on long drives

WORST: My interior mirror drops slowly and has to be adjusted every few days

Best: Overall design (interior and exterior) Major improvement from my E92.
Worst: The paint! Jet Black is nearly impossible to keep clean; I find that my E92 (same color) is easier to maintain/has higher quality paint.
