You're right, but my current car is not the only F30 we've had in the family. Not counting M cars since those are a different story, on the Exx side we had 2007 328i, 2011 135i, 2011 328i, 2013 335is and on the Fxx side we've had a 2012 328i, 2015 328i, and now two 2016 340is (my parents loved mine the few times I've let them borrow it so they just got one for themselves).

The improvements from 2012 to present are very noticeable (and were very welcome) but I still liked the way the early F30 drove when driven aggressively over the E90s.
