That said, this forum is full of fanboys (especially the 335i guys
). The current 3 series is not the end-all car. It's a good car, but by no means is it great. It's too bad there are so many badge whores around these parts.
I too am not a fan of driving around a Hyundai, but hey, get what fits the bill.
I think Hyudai has made a lot of progress over the years.
A GC & a BMW are not in the same class nor was the 3 series Hyundai's aim with the GC so why are they being compared? Different cars. 2.0T model is SEVERELY underpowered. You need to drop a few GRAND into it just to get it to the STOCK power of the 3.8 V6 which is also underpowered & needs more torque.
