Car looks beautiful but I just started lookin at these and have a question. Is Sport Line equivalent to the previous gen's Sport pack?

The old gen is way lower sitting than the new one.

I've heard that but I can't say because I never owned the previous incarnation.

.
Pretty much the same. Adding sports package typically included sports seat, sports suspension, wheels and few other cosmetic stuff like steering wheel, bumpers, etc. Now they just separated this into Sports line

(F30) Official MINERAL GREY F30 Photo Thread

Took delivery this week....

320d Sport - Mineral Grey
- Pro Navigation Pack
- Interior Comfort Pack
- Visibility Pack
- Sport Auto
- 18" 397 Wheels
- Black Mirror Caps
- Sun Protection Glass
- Auto-Dimming Mirrors
- Front seat heating
- Aluminium/Black Trim
- PDC Front & Rear
- Shadowline Finish
- Anthracite headlining

Am about 300 miles in and so far so good, no vibrations that have come through and the 320d engine is superb - on about 48mpg for the 300miles!!

Still getting used to the iDrive system... coming from a W204 C-Class it is a LOT more complicated, but am getting there!

Minor gripes so far:
- Wing Mirrors... wish they folded automatically when locking
- Front PDC... wish this came on automatically below a certain speed like the merc
- speed of navigating iPod... it takes a while to search through and get to the tracks I am looking for
- the isofix anchors are quite far in from the door, meaning wasted space between door and seat and impact to the seating for others in the back.

Big plusses over the mercedes:
- Seats are a lot more comfortable
- Space for rear seating is massive in comparison; although boot (aka trunk!) seems smaller.
- Xenons are amazing!

Gorgeous, thanks for the photos. Exact color combo I am picking up in a few months

Thank you. I ordered my F30 in black so it doesn't make much of a difference for me

I'm sure Mineral Gray with black accents will look awesome

Anyone on here have a mineral grey with the Dakota (grey) leather interior? That's what I ordered, but it looks like it wasn't a popular combo. Most of you appear to have gotten the black interior. I've always had a black interior and I like the contrast the Dakota leather had on the online configurator, but I'm curious to see it IRL.

I meant Everest grey, not Dakota. Anyone have a mineral grey with the Everest grey interior?

(F30) Official MINERAL GREY F30 Photo Thread

Here is my 2012 Mineral Grey 328i. It is the base model with Sportline suspension installed. Going from base model suspension to Sport, only seamed to drop the rear of the car the claimed 10mm, the front seems more like 5mm on a good day. It did however firm up the ride by about 20% which was exactly what I wanted. Not sure if I really like the black grilles yet, but I saw some people here asking how it would look so here ya go!
