What was your previous vehicle?

As a current G20 owner, very curious to know what vehicle did you upgrade from?

What are your thoughts on your new ride, compared to your previous vehicle? Any options/packages did you consider?

I had a E90 335i. I was having quarterly cooling problems and we decided to stop putting money into it and get a new car. I got a great deal on my G20. I got it on Saturday and I love it! My previous car feels so dated now. It's also great to drive a car without worrying about when the next trip to the shop is going to be and how much it's going to cost me now.

E90 325i, will be getting my G20 this week. I pretty much went for every technology pack that was available.

Only skipped on the laser lights because of the steep prise and the fact I expect the dynamic leds are also a huge upgrade from where I'm coming from. Also skipped on comfort access because I do not trust the security of it to such a degree it justifies the slightly added actual comfort.

2016 Q50 RS400. Has been a fun car (Inject most cars with 400 hp and they become instantly more interesting), but the tech is so outdated by quite literally a decade, I needed to upgrade.



Expecting my G20 next week. When I test drove it, it was better than my Q50 in practically every aspect, and the tech just blew it out of the water.

I always found the exhausts on the F-types brutal. Best sounding V6 exhaust and the V8 is even crazier.

What made you get rid of it?

Nice cosmetically but not a driver's car. For me it is primarily about how a car goes around corners and bends. Not interested in fuel economy, soft touch plastics or anything else irrelevant for me

2018 Jeep Cherokee and a 2013 Mustang GT. Sold the mustang and traded the Jeep. I wanted a daily driver that had balls. And the M340 checks every aspect. The Mustang was a garage queen and now I get a great daily and power. Got to love this car in Sport plus with the Gear stick pushed to the left for S mode. OMG the power it puts out is just crazy. Do a pull at 50 MPH once in stick shifted left. Puts you back in your seat.

Prior to that 2009 VW GTI, which I loved. It is perhaps the best all around car for the money

Interesting to see majority are coming from other BMW vehicles, other German automobiles, or other sportier luxury brands.

Interesting no Hondas, Toyotas, Mazdas, or Subarus?
