    I think the last BMW that came close to the essence of the ZHP was a M-package 125i/128i with the 6 speed and no iDrive or other unnecessary gadgets.

    The F22 might be a better progenitor: https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-cul...omparison-test

    We got rid of my wife's F30 automatic xDrive & put her in an Estoril Blue 228i 6-speed manual!

    My wife recently moved from a 428i auto Vert to a M235i auto Vert. Iíve had it out on some twisty back hills and it does well BUT, you need to be in the correct mode.

    It does have Gobbís of power and road glue in sport + but, that takes planing. In the ZHP, itís just a madder of knowing the gear for the road/driving environment.

    It looks too short in length and too tall.
    I thought BMW had stopped the Grand touring stuff.

    The Base GC comes with FWD, but the M235i GC comes with AWD.

    TBH, I'm more interested in the Golf R at a lower price point.
