This my fourth BMW and after a brief stint in other performance vehicles, it is a distinct pleasure to be back in a 3 series. The smooth silky engine, the tight and predictable handling and the clean ergonomically correct cockpit. The performance is better than I remembered, particularly with the standard transmission. Appreciate the value package with free leather and USB interface. Overall a ten, I have no regrets and only positive things to say. A great car.
Engine, uncluttered cockpit, brakes, suspension and the audio system.
