My father in law has been lecturing us every other day when we pick him up on why we purchased the sport package with the stiff suspension, low pro 17" RFL tires, and the turbo engine since we are not "race car drivers". He also emphasizes the cheaper base model cooper is so much smoother in both ride and throttle response-what a bad choice we made. I hope I don't become a nag when I reach his age. Lol.

From the consensus, it will be either the PDC w/ rear camera or lighting package. My wife likes both options however I'm a bit frugal and would like to keep the price under $40k. We only have one dealer in Honolulu so the pricing will always be above MSRP.

Thank you again. I will talk it over with my wife.
FYI, the sport suspension in the F30 is not jarring as it was in the E90.
