    Was guunning for 330i msport earlier then they launched li and at 5'10, 5 days a week chauffeured guy who loves driving his cars to limits is confused how to spend his hard earned money 330i sport- cheap, lacks auto parking and connected tech 330i m sport - all good . Mostly comfortable also 330 li - just lakh more and so much amenities, but have paddles and not that good a handler. Would have bought if paddles were there 330li m sport - good . But just 2 lakh short of 530i sport 530 i sport- really good. But too costly too big. Or should i go for an octy:-( and save money :-) Confused as hell

    What a bummer, absence of rear sun shades. At this price point it is not acceptable. Alot of stuff missing. No point in simply paying a bit more just for the leg space. In that case go for skoda superb, simply clever.👌🏼

    You buy a 3 series to drive it not to be driven in, this seems to be a marketing gimmick to sell more cars. If you want space, get a 5 series, if you have $$$, get a 7 series
