Thank you all for the comments. This forum has been very helpful in learning about these cars.

SamS and uucuu3, you will love this car!
Boosted John, your car looks great, and encouraging to see that you're up to 27 mpg.
MotoEV, thanks for the feedback on the issues.

I went for a 120 mile trip on the highway yesterday. I think I am now changing my opinion on the road/wind noise. I've made the same trip countless times with '09 335i, and now I feel the F30 is definitely quieter, especially for road noise. Wind noise might be slightly less as well. (It might be better than "slightly less", since if road noise is less, wind noise might seem more pronounced.) I will update my post with this, and other things as I notice them.
The mpg for the trip was 30 with EcoPro mode engaged all the time. I was "sailing" numerous times when I had the foot off the gas.
I like the car even more after this trip!!
