I completely agree with the OP. I was a 5 series guy until I had a few F10's for loaners, test drove the 550 M-Sport and then had the dealer give me a ride in the new F10. The F10 does have some nice features, Interior and the M5 was really quick but then I tried the M3 w/ DCT. It seriously took about 30 mins of driving the car to realize the 5 series was just getting too big and the ///M3 was not as small as I always thought it to be. Well that was until I put my hockey bag in the trunk......
