Stickguy beat me to the punch. I'm looking to trade-in my 2010 Acura TSX w/ Tech pkg (48,600 miles, Black/Black) for a 2011 E90 328xi sedan.
The salesman I dealt with last night was a fellow enthusiast who has been selling BMWs for 7 years (5 this dealer). His daily driver is a 335xi w/ a stick. During the test drive I asked him what his opinion of the new F10 328i was. He really likes the 2.0L 4 cyl turbo engine & the 8 speed automatic. He said they definitely softened up the ride (he doesn't like). When I asked about the new electric power steering, he replied: "Not a fan."
I will keep you guys updated as well as all my friends on the other boards here on Town Hall.

this is a new 2011 leftover, right? Or is it a demo of some kind? you probably said elsewhere but it has slipped my mind!

It is a brand new 2011. Still at the port actually. But all the cars I'm looking at are new.
The dealer had a 335xi (E90) sitting in the showroom without navigation.

Not to stray too far off topic, but that new RWD Toyota/Subaru is looking very interesting...

If they just had a moonroof available I would be done...

So what's up with the insurance settlement?

I put together a large package including all of my documents and sent it to them for review. I should get an answer by the end of this week WRT any increase in their appraised value.
I'm not optimistic and fully anticipate hiring an appraiser and taking it to arbitration, unless...
I told my brother that I expect him to compensate me for the difference between what insurance pays me and the car's "real world" value. I will leave it to him to decide to roll the dice and pay for arbitration or just write me a check for the difference.
Either way, I should know by this weekend which way it's going to go.
In the meantime, by best friend told me he's thinking about selling his '05 997... I'm hoping things fall into place.

997, very nice.... I test drove a 05 Boxster S a while back, have to say I almost traded my 05 in for that car, what a sweet ride. After that day, I have stopped looking at Porsche's, they will get me into trouble...

I like the 997, but if I am completely honest with myself, it's a little soft. Too easy to drive and too comfortable.
I really want a 993, but I know the 997 is the better car for me.
