    First Reviews of the 2012 F30

    Not sure why this hasn't been posted but the first drive reviews of the new F30 are out. So far, all the reviewers have been talking wonders about the new F30. The car now has a 50/50 balance, and feels a lot more agile, the new N20 makes this car feel more alive compared to the outgoing weak I6. The only let down down seems to be the electric steering.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here's a quote from insideline: " First Impression:A solid and substantial redesign that adds yet another level of refinement to a car that barely needed any. It's still not perfect, but it's that much closer" ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here are the reviews:---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2012-bmw-328i-3-series-sedan-first-drive-review-----------------------------------------http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/1111_2012_bmw_3_series_first_drive---------------------------------------------http://www.insideline.com/bmw/3-series/2012/2012-bmw-328i-first-drive.html----------------------------------------------------http://www.autocar.co.uk/CarReviews/FirstDrives/BMW-3-Series-320d/260112----------------------------------------------------http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/275347/new_bmw_3_series.html-------------------------------------------http://www.automobilemag.com/reviews/driven/1111_2012_bmw_328i_first_drive/index.html--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Sticky, please edit my post.

    It hasn't been posted because first drive's are pretty much useless IMO. I want to see the performance numbers not some editor write about his feelings.

    Especially since most the reviews are written by guys with very little actual car knowledge or experience. Had a friend who delivered cars to the track for these reviews...always complained about how amateur the were, apparently the mags rarely send out the real editors.
    Never thought I would see the day...
