Should I transfer my F36 430i lease to get a G20 330i?

I'm looking at a white on black G20 330i with M Sport, Executive, and a couple other packages. How is this car for you guys? What do you like/not-like compared to a 2019 430i GC?

I had the G20 loaner for a day, and I didn't like the dash layout too much. I thought it felt a little cheap, but I didn't have enough time to actually decide for sure.

What do you guys think?

Thanks

I got the M340i and I am enjoying it.

330i might not be as fast but it's definitely quick enough. The dash is awesome. The I-Drive is awesome too. Touch screen is great, wireless Apple CarPlay is trouble free unlike what the reviewers have been saying. I also see a lot of reviewers say they don't like the BMW digital dash. I love it, not as customizable as the Audi one but has very high resolution.

Coming from a Non-BMW vehicle, the B48 4 cylinder is peppy. The Tech is more modern: voice control, the menus are crisp and fast when swiping. However, like with any infotainment system there is an adjustment/learning period. After this, the navigating through the menus and displays and adjusting the menu becomes second nature.

I configured my 330 with Leather WalkNappa Dashboard, makes a difference and is a more luxurious feeling. Rubber dash is too plain for me as I seen it on many F30s, F80s even with most non-luxury vehicles.

I'm not a fan of Grand coupes, the rear passengers' heads get shafted so close to C pillars and sloped roof, if carrying passengers in the rear I prefer regular sedan or SUV.

Yeah makes sense however size doesn't really matter we are a family of three with a 3 year old daughter and the 5 series is used whenever we go somewhere the 43"GC is more just a personal car to drive

The 330 does have varnasca leather and the leather dash option however do you feel like the dash set is set too low

If you have another 5er as a family car, why would you want to replace the 430GC with a 330 sedan...? The 4GC is a great car and I personally wouldn't trade it for a 330 just becoz of the G generation.

If you want a daily to yourself, why not grab an M240?

By trading in do you mean you got out of your lease early and get into the new one? Could you share how you managed to do that, through Swapalease? Did you take a bit hit in doing so?

Transferring the lease pretty easy to transfer
267 p/mo 2600 at signing + transfer fee and 20 months left with 850 miles per month

Haven't transferred yet but about to

Is it through Swapalease or something similar?

You got an insanely good deal so I'm sure it's much easier to transfer.

I like the current F36 GC. It looks sleek and purposeful.

I'm not a fan of the G20 front fascia and the generic styling of the G20. It just looks like a Camry or an Accord

I also don't care for the new digital instrument panel. I do like how the center screen is better integrated into the dash and not tacked on like the F36 and other F series. I don't like how all the controls are clustered right next to gear shift lever a la microwave oven touch screen.

I feel the same way that many of you feel about the instrument cluster layout and the button arrangement around the shifter.
