The original post gave the impression that you can really order whatever you want, but these are line-specific options.
The question becomes then, what does a standard 3 series not denoted within one of the "lines" look like regarding bumpers, accents, etc.
The shame is I love the contrast of the SPORT, but the interior looks cheap because of that red line going down it. Looks like we'll have more waiting to see.
I'm curious about this as well. For example, the modern and sport lines have a different instrument cluster than the luxury line so if we were to build a standard car (no lines) which instrument cluster is the standard?
As for the side badges, yes they're tacky but why all the fuss? It's not like you're paying any extra to put them on. Just remove them like you do with the model badge at the back. (If you can't remove them, then yeah, that sucks and looks stupid!)
