I would agree with part of that statement.
As long as the F30 is an M-Sport.
The Modern Line and others just look busy from the front, too busy.
As someone who has done an extensive test drive and will continue my extensive test drive today, I can say I would not trade my E90 for an F30.
Like you said, the build quality doesn't feel the same.
Also, the steering on the F30 is vague and unsure. While my E90 with sport package is in a different league.
Although the F30 is bigger the interior feels cramped.
The door pocket intrudes where my left leg wants to be and the footwell feels smaller.
My car had been in for warranty repair, now the 3rd time is two weeks so I'm getting to know the F30 real well.
The F30 is more like the girl you would date but wouldn't marry. Looks good, but when you really look deeper the elements just aren't there.
