Compare to official stats/specs @

Acceleration: Rev-limited to 3,800 rpm with ESC on. No limit (besides redline) with it off. Seems relatively indifferent to launch technique. Only a few hundredths separate clutch dump from careful modulation by 60 mph. Shifter is less likable when rushed in this environment. Engine is done at 6,500.

Braking: Confident pedal every stop but fade (+/- 6 feet) is present. Not the best braking in the segment.


Skid pad: Heavy steering with quite good communication at the limit. More body roll than expected makes sensing grip limits more difficult. Still, good balance. Adjustable, but slower to respond than I'd prefer.

Slalom: Ample body roll makes quick transitions feel awkward. Even so, limits are reasonably well defined. Excellent ESC produces quickest slalom time by 0.04 second.

Compared to E90 328i:

Wow, that body lean is kinda not BMW sport suspension like.

What wheels and tires are those?
The wheels don't look like the painted black/silver 18's shown on the BMWUSA website.
The silver 19's are only available on the 335i, and those are staggered with wider tires in the rear than what the 328i sport line gets.
