The F30 has its limits

The F30 is a great car. But what would you change to make it better?

Less windnoise from windscreen/A pillar. Better(less noisy) RFT tyres, faster working satnav/iDrive at startup, better working comfort access plus trunk/boot. Better (more clear)reception of radiostations. Getting rid of the CDV(clutch delay valve) in the 6MT cars. About 50HP and 50Nm more plus a real mechanical LSD as standard please.

And that's about it.

Cheers
Robin

This.

I would like more interior color options. Blue stitching on the M-Sport would have been nice.

I hate the placement of the trunk button.

1. Not gonna happen but spare tire.

2. Bump it up to 335hp without the nonsense of dishing out extra money for the PPK.

3. Better voice regonition. Im so freakin tired of hearing "PLEASE REPEAT COMMAND"! Or half the time it doesnt even do anything. Or just gives you something different. Make it like Apples SIRI. HOnestly that would be a huge boost.

Must be your accent. It has been flawless with my Texas Accent. Seriously, I tried to talk even more "redneck" and it still worked.

Factory installed M Sport brake option in the US of A.

Proper limited slip diff.

Short throw shifter option on 6MT.

Abandon the "lines" and remove arbitrary restrictions on optioning.

Dear BMW,

Don't change the damn trunk design (a la E90s) so I can upgrade to LCI tail lights without buying a new trunk/paint/badges/etc.

Love,
Snig

Most of this is resolved now in the latest F30/31, except the extra ponies, the wind noise has been solved with changes to trim and door seals. New nav is instant, comfort access is great and the boot operates with a swipe of the boot., job done.

Is that the official name of the thing that keeps you from rolling back for 3 seconds when on an incline?
