Probably because many M3 drivers are coming from having owned sports cars all their life, not coming from a family sedan to an M3... For me, this car is a HUGE improvement in daily driving over my EVO.

I'm not sure how you guys average over 20 MPG on the highway with the M3. I drove from Atlanta to DC on all highways with cruise control most of the way...I averaged 20.5 MPG...
I got 23.5 coming from Asheville NC to Northern VA on 81. Average speed was about 80mph.

335's and 330s of prior 2 gens with the sport package basically had similar ride qualities to an E9X ZCP w/ adaptive suspension settings (Comfort), and would say the M3 Non ZCP feels actually feels softer than the prior 2 gens in Comfort Mode.

Why are you passing over the new 328i? Lease one for under 300/mo put a hartge tune on it for a grand and make 300hp and still get over 32mpg.
