Last winter I had a fully loaded 328i xdrive loaner for few weeks. It had all the creature comforts of my M, leather and all. The handling was pretty good and after a few days I got used to the power (or lack of it). It was winter and only used it for DD
. God forgive me, at a point I even wondered if an M is that necessary...
When I got my ///M back, it was like "what the f#*k was I thinking"!!!
The M3 rocks
But the 328 is still a pretty decent car.
