F30 xDrive Commercial - Corners



The latest commercial from BMW highlights the driving dynamics of xDrive on the F30 3 series. The latest round of commercials from BMW has been great with more focus on how the car drives and less on gadgets or status. A nice bit of narration from Chris Pine wraps up as one of my more favorite recent 3 series commercials.

What do you think? Is BMW on the right track again for advertising the Ultimate Driving Machine?

I like the fact that they are actually talking about the handling characteristics for once. Seems like they have been pretty focused on the technology part in the commercials.

I have to say it seems like my e46 xi handled better than my f30 xdrive but maybe it's just my perception because this is a much bigger car with electronic steering and way more power. I know the 50/50 balance is off slightly compared to the e46 but not by much.

I agree on the handling but the F30 is such a nice smooth drive. It does make the E46 seem dated.
