Nice. Thanks for the pics. I noticed the rev counter only goes to '7' in both the 328 and 335. I liked how the E9X 335i went to 8.

I'd like to hear a comparison also. I found the regular seats on the E90 to not be very comfortable when I had a loaner with them. I always thought the sport seats with thigh support were much better.

I like it but I am not getting one as that color is not available with M Sport. You will note I said non-enthusiasts - they tend to buy what looks very nice on the lot and that combo is a stunner.

Does ANYONE actually like the red? I mean...it's a nice red and all, but I don't see them selling large quantities of red BMWs. Which makes me wonder why they are seeding all the sport lines in red?

The sport seats really do offer a significant amount more support than the regular seats. If you're into twisties and spirited driving I'd say they're a must buy.

I have full access to this as I work 10 feet away from where they are doing the press event. They are taking the cars to Laguna Seca today (Tuesday) and running them as they are shipped with no brake or tire upgrades!!! I wish I had time to head over to the track and check it out. The F30 335's exhaust definately sounds better than the E9x 335, although I am no expert.

Here are the quick iPhone pictures I took just passing by. Let me now if anyone wants any specific pictures and I should be able to get them tommorrow.

I love the front end. I really do, but in AW the space where the license plate may/may not go is just so damn obvious! It almost begs to have a ED so that when you keep the euro plate, you can put it on there.

I would have gotten them in a heartbeat, along with the sport suspension, if only they offer those choices with the luxury line...

... believe me...

I just dont why BMW would not let us pick both premium and sport option at the same time as in the past... why the change now ? if anyone would enlight me on that!

If I ever get the F30, I'd definitely get the m sport package.

The non-m sport front bumpers look so weird, especially the lower fascia.

Don't worry, my friend. I wouldn't buy Imperial Blue F30. Its dark color would show dirt easily. I would go for Glacier Silver or Melbourne Red.

Plus, IMO Imperial Blue looks best on Luxury Line (the contrast with the chrome surroundings on the windows) while I prefer Sports Line.

It's the driving mode I was in at the time. There's Sport+, Sport, Comfort, and Eco Pro modes.
