Finally made the decision today: F30, not E90
After almost signing the papers on a 2009 E90 335 XDrive, manual, all options (No M Sport, but has front/rear PDC and active cruise! - only missing auto high beams), 1200 miles, I saw all the new F30s at the dealer and my mind began to wonder. Because the E90 is across the country, and it has so many options, I would end up putting $14k to get the car, plus payments of $495 for 60 months. Why not get an F30 with all options, do Euro Delivery and call it a day?
So that's what I finally decided! F30 335 X Drive, M Sport, Estoril Blue, all options, but awaiting the 2014 MY because I really want the updated nav, and am curious what they'll add for the new year. I would probably pull the trigger on the 2013 if someone could confirm the new Nav is in production now.
Anyway, I'll be amongst all you lucky F30 owners soon!
My only hesitation was the over assisted steering on the F30s... but I figure I'll get over that. The E90 was brutally heavy anyway...
