Like the N20 suddenly becomes more powerful and not ticking in a 4 even though it's the same engine... Mmh I call BS on that one. The other thing is "suspensions 3x better" and "fixed the steering". I'd wait and see on these 2.
Good for OP for the cool experience on a personal level, but he just became BMW marketing mouthpiece on the forums. A shill.
An ipad mini, a $50 gift card, a jacket and free dinners will not sway my opinion.. ha I already have a brand new iPad 4 and iPhone 5.
I drove an F30 for over 2 weeks, and had it a couple other times when my car was in for service. I could feel the difference right away. Yes, this was a marketing event, but the 4 feels nothing like the 3. The engine sound was the first thing I noticed and the biggest difference between the two cars. The Steering was different, you will just have to try for yourself when the car is avaiable in October.
