Getting a f36 grab coupe wanted some opinions

So I have a 320iXdrive x drive 2018 and I'm also getting a 430ix drive 2019 wanted to know if it's a better car in terms of comfort and road noise, not that good on the f30 also is the back seat finenfor a car seat with a 3 year old

Thanks

It's a better car however if comfort and noise are more important, I find A4/5 or Mercedes C class does a better job.

Mine is a f36 and absolutely love it.

I've had an f36 for 8 months absolutely a dream the boot is amazing the space and still looks like a coupe. Love the pillarless windows.

I contemplated a 3er. But it don't quite cut it. Defo looks better than the 3er.

F36 is one of the best vehicles in F30x series. You will enjoy. Since your previous vehicle had a 4 cylinder engine, you will like the engine in 430ix.

My f36 is infinitely superior to my 2015 Mazda 6 top of the range for noise ride etc For rear space you are fine for a car seat as I was 5 up last night taking a rowdy group of 15 year olds home from my daughters birthday party,,,,,

The pillarless windows are amazing especially when you have the windows down and open the door

Yeah had a car seat plus one adult in the passengers seat isn't bad at all seems like a bit more room than my 3 however when it comes to putting someone in the center seat ( unless it's a small child that's when things get difficult lol

I had considered a F36 but the rear seat was too small...leg room too short....decided to take F34 and compromise on exterior design for sake of usability. I find it easier to get used to the design than to keep having inadequate space for adults.
