The things I like about the E90 platform as compared to the E46 are the stiffness of the unibody, the quietness at freeway speeds and the tracking. The E90 was designed from the start to have a much lower scrub radius than the E46, and it tracks beautifully. Whenever I get in an E46 I'm reminded how badly they tramline and bump-steer.

Everything else I think the E90 was a step backwards from the E46. Interior, exterior, seat comfort, shift action, clutch action, throttle modulation, all worse. IMO.
