I have committed the ultimate sin!!

Today I just sold my 2013 E92 M3 ZCP in order to get a 2014 435i. I did test drive it on the street for a short run and I can say that they are two different animals. Well, there is only one animal in this comparison. If you have never driven an M car you haven't experience the best of Bavaria. I hope you guys forgive me and I will be moving to the 4 threads.

I am thinking about the same thing. Can you elaborate more on which one you like more or less?

Hmmm. OP, I have to say this makes a lot of sense. You ditched the heavy lard M3 for a lighter car. Kudos. I agree with this switch.

I sold my M3 and got a E90 328i. It came with the M Sport package and suspension, so I swapped those out for the standard suspension and bumper. It's also an automatic too.

What you really should have done is buy the best 3-series BMW has ever made: the E46 330i ZHP. Much better than the M3.

So you traded in your brand new M3 for a standard run of the mill 4 series NON-M car?

Folks are going to be picking up the M4 and M3 in a 12 months timeframe.

To each their own I guess.

The automatic transmission in the X1 is faster shifting than the DCT.

Major party foul requiring forfeiture of your man card. Did your wife/GF tell you to sell your M3 (it's too rough and loud, honey)? I bet she doesn't like your friends either.

The new 4 series is good looking(this one is subjective), most likely a lot more comfortable, and cheaper to run/own. Other than that I can't think of a reason to switch.
