Nice review! Some of the technical details are incorrect, however (i.e. BMW no longer uses twin turbos, but rather a single twin-scroll turbo <--- which is partly why it is more fuel efficient than 3series past.)

Welcome to the forums
thanks but the information which I posted came from the Press release article here. You are right about the single twin scroll turbo and I had a chat with them, they wanted me to put twin turbo here......

thanks for liking the article....

Awesome! Dubai!

I lived in Emirates Hills and the Al Barsha area while I was there. Enjoyed every bit of it!

Lots of car enthusiasts are there. I had a 2009 Infinity FX35 while I was there and enjoyed the stiff competition I faced every time I got on the road...

Welcome to the forums
also the model shown is not an M sport(M sport has blue trim and a thicker wheel than the one shown), you should change this.

other than the incorrect technical details mentioned already mentioned by crowed i aslo think it was a nice review.

ps my signiture is a M sport

Beautiful photos. I also love the license plate design... it's typographically sophisticated. I do agree about the "twin turbo" part. Whether you pulled it from a press release or not, it's factually incorrect and misleading. "Twin Turbos" is a HUGE difference from "Single Twin Scroll Turbo".
