I'm stuck on trim level and nothing is lighting my fire at the moment, don't want an all black interior.

Anyone seen the saddle brown leather in the Luxury line?

I haven't yet seen the luxury interior as my dealer only has modern and sport at the moment and I don't like either; the modern is, to me, particularly unpleasant, with beige dials and it's finished in sculptured trim which looks like it's been roughly whittled from a gash bit of driftwood.
The switchgear and plastics feel cheaper and, to me, not what you'd expect in a car costing the best part of £40k.
However, all this is very much compensated for by a vast improvement in the electric steering and the amazing new 4cyl 2 litre engine; on paper it's not quite as fast as my F10 535d, but it feels quicker because there's absolutely no turbo lag and it shifts somewhere between 6 and 6.5K RPM.
I'm eagerly awaiting the coupé version, rumoured to be due late next year.
