    i do like the F30 iDrive which is closer to the driver makes viewing much better and clearer.
    but, as you mentioned without the 'hood', it's exposed to sunlight

    only bone to pick about the car....... the tag for a 3. If not it should be perfect for a vehicle in its class
    The seat seems more comfortable... in the showroom. It's wider, yes, but soft. My E90 seats are firmer. I think that makes a difference when driving and I cannot really say anything now because I haven't driven long enough in the car to tell the comfort of the seats.

    I personally think Volvo seats are one of the best for long distance cruising! BMW seats have always been made a little narrower and sportier.

    The screens now have a new anti reflection coating which is why they removed the "hood" . So far from my experiences, don't encounter any visibility issues without the "hood".

    Yeap, I went to the front, set my usual driving position, then went to the back. It was abit more spacious - TRUE. but not much more spacious to the extent I had a reason to say, yay let's buy a new F30 because I need more space. for $230k, I think 520i + ECU remap sounds like a better proposition :P

    Cool, that's good to know! But aren't the old screens already matte/anti-reflective? I'd love to take pics for comparison but I did not bring my DSLR along today.

    No so sure bout the old screens, but from what i read, they were only able to debut the new screens because of this new coating.

    I only know that the N20 has lots of torque. I experienced it on someone's X3 (as a passenger), wow, scarily fast. (Maybe it's because I'm a slow driver.)

    Hitmee, quality post?

    Remembering that Ill be dead soon is the most important tool Ive ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
    And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    Hmm are you referring to this:
    Transflective liquid crystal display - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think my current 2011 E90 has the same type of display. When light hits it, it actually reflects out.
