Very Nice !!!!!!!!!!

Yea, man the car looks great. I have alway's been a hatch man, and a coupe every now and again(last 3 years anyway) but for loading my drums in a hatch works out better. Couple questions.....How is the steering compared to the 135i? Is it still hydrolic or EPS ? Also are the tires RFT ? Lastly i have heard/read that BMW will be offering the 235 as well in a AWD....will this come to the USA? I would realy love a tight "LITTLE" car with AWD here in NJ.......especially a hatch..but us USA cat's seem to never get the BMW hatch. Maybe not as sleek as a coupe but i do believe the sales would warrant it to come here...Just as Subaru...there hatch STI is there top seller , with much larger sales than the sedan with that bizare wing....reason i never bought there sedan...and after driving a BMW for the last 3 years the Subbie just does not cut it anymore. I no i have test driven every STI there is.

Yessir! I was stationed in Italy for a few years and had the opportunity to work along some of our RAF brethren on one of my TDYs.

Your car really is impeccable. I'm pretty picky when it comes to auto styling. To this day i still cant fully wrap myself around the new look of the 3series. I have a hard time adjusting to drastic changes.

The steering is electric, it takes some getting used to! In 'Comfort' its very light, but in 'Sport' it stiffens up and feels almost hydraulic.

The tyres aren't runflat, they can be specced though.

Yes, the M235i will be going to USA! For some strange reason the M135i isnt' I still cant figure out why not though!!

The Subaru is not going to be made any more, so that says something.
