Suspension
The complaints about the too-firm suspension, especially on rebound, has reached a fever-pitch now that the pavement has begun to crack and crumble in the winter weather. While a good number of those complaints have come from Road Test Editor Marc Noordeloos - our most vociferous stiff-suspension stickler-many others have now joined him to form a chorus of complaints. "Teeth-jarring," "a fair bit of impact harshness from rear suspension," and "the M3 coupe rides better than the 1-series, as does pretty much everything else BMW makes," are just a few. Short wheel-travel is partially to blame for the ride-harshness. And, because the distance between the tire and the surrounding sheetmetal is so small, snow tends to get packed inside the wheel well, causing some minor vibrations and further degrading the ride.
