18" sport wheels look better than the 19's in my opinion.

I thought the Coral Red was going to grey piping and stitching? In these pics the piping and stitching match the seat color. I hope they do the same on the black leather.

AW is the best looking. overall, the car looks stanning from front, side, and rear. angular view of the front (lets say 45 degrees) is not so much. it looks like too much metal and headlights with grills are too small....

still excited to see it alive to make the final judgement...

Meh... I hate to say it, I've been a staunch supporter of the new front end, but the more I look at it, the more I'm disillusioned. Take your lips and curl them over their respective rows of front teeth, then smile. That's what it looks like. I like it, but hmm... I wonder if BMW wasn't daring enough? Maybe this design is too much in the middle, trying to please both the contemporaries and the traditionalists. Either way, it's a very nice car, just wondering if more could have been done on the exterior.

From what I'm reading though, the engine and suspension are top-notch! No issues there!

The more I see it the more uglier the front end becomes...it is just plain ugly...what were they thinking? As for the afterthought Navigation screen...seriously...it is hideous, looks like they forgot it and then stuck it there because there was no where else to put it.
If they make the coupe look anything like the front end of this and the inside I will be buying another brand.

Question...is this a e90 v e92 thing...or is this a E9x versus F3x...

The central armrest in the pics is one piece. On my 2011 E92, this is two pieces, of which the left side moves front and backwards. It still opens as one piece. Are current e90s the same one piece cover as shown in the pictures here?

And another small thing, why did BWW include the temperature control dial in addition to the digital auto setting? And for the love of god, since they are intent on this feature, why did they reverse it so now warmer is to the left? Come on, where is all the anal retentive German engineering? And don't get me started on the reversal of the steering wheel controls!? hahaha This is even more traumatic to me then when they moved the window switches from the center console!

Silver F30 with red leather interior / sport is the combo I'm liking best thus far (from non Msport).

Msport silver with red leather would be idea. Such a good combo!

The GS 335i has 19"wheels and the GS F30(same picture cluster) on the road is not a 335i but a 328i and has 18" wheels? I thought that the GS F30 was one and the same car, but it isn't?

Glacier Silver looks the best to me. That would be my choice when I'm buying. Also, I like the design of the 18s wheels better than the 19s. But the bigger size gives the car an overall better look, as it fills the wheel wells better.

It should have black stitches on red seats. My F20 sport has this combination; I guess the F30 should be the same.

Agreed, but doing that would take away any motivation for people to get the all-important 'premium' package. I was very upset to see that I wasn't able to just get the xenons without the package with the F30.

I felt the exact same way! I want xenons and auto-dimming mirrors without the $3600 premium package, and heated leatherette seats. Lame....

not a fan of the new configuration interface they have ‘upgraded’ to, plus the F30 is NOT available to customize how you want it, you choose one option and forces you to pick or remove something else - ugg - of course some things never change.

I like the look of the 19" wheels more than the 18" wheels. I don't like that smoke finish, or whatever it's called. Too boy-ricer for me.

So let me see if I understand this correctly, the optional 19" wheels are not available with the 328i? They're only a $900 option for the 335i. I'm speaking about USA configuator.

Can somebody please confirm?
