Maybe I'm the first person to go from an E9x M3 to an F30 335i?
Just completed the sale of the M3, and will get a production number for the 335i at the end of this month. Needed the extra doors, so I got a 335i as "close" as I could to my beloved M3: M-sport, Adaptive M-suspension, M-Performance Exhaust, etc. Yes I know it's not an ///M. But there is no M car that suits my needs, available today.
I'm actually quite looking forward to some of the F30 features, including the different (better, IMO) interior, camera options, HUD, etc. E92 M3 is still the best car I've driven, but I was only using 50% of its capability, and lack of doors was really starting to hamper me.
