Wow. There's much less of a reason to get the premium package.
Auto-dim mirrors, power seats, garage door openers are all standard; not to mention the xenon de-coupling.
If it was me, I would certainly pass on the premium package and spend the money elsewhere
The Anthracite Wood trim would look nice in the sport line also...but that's extra.
All-in-all, I think BMW did a great job with balancing the new offerings without making the MY12 3ers regret anything
I'm absolutely happy with my MY12 and I don't feel taken advantage off or anything. (well, maybe the split-folding seats would've been nice)
