Actually prefer the look of the F31 over the F30!

As far as I know it's EU regulation that the rear needs reflectors. My theory is they used to put them in the tail lights but with clear design tail lights they had to put 'em somewhere else . I know here in Belgium, cars have been temporarily prohibited from driving public roads after shaving those reflectors at our yearly obligatory car inspection.
It could be a simple design feature too of course

BMW NA - you HAVE TO give us a manual F30 335 wagon (Canada at least, why not?)

this would seriously make me stop looking @ M3s and older S4 Avants for my next ride

i think ACC will come with the touring for e30 und e31.
I'm confused, where did you see the new sensor? I don't see anything different from my own car? As far as I can see there are two sensors, one for the side view camera, the other is PDC.

Nice, but unless they bring the 335 Touring, I'm not ditching my B8 A4 Avant

Don't you see the big box in the front? It's really too obvious so I hope they will hide it better.

But you'll be able to get this one with a stick, most likely... And you're already driving a turbo 4

Another vote for an "interesting" engine. 6spd + xDrive + diesel and I will buy, 6spd + xDrive + 335 and I will almost certainly buy... 6spd + xDrive + 328.... mayyyybe.

If I'm reading the F30 x-drive details right, the 328Xi won't be available with a manual, so I'm assuming the only manual F31 will be the 328i, not the 328xi. Sucks for your snow bound folks. No sport suspension and no three pedal wagons.

Yep, I just read the same thing

*assuming* the sedan powertrain choices hold true, you won't be able to buy an AWD manual wagon.. and if BMW only brings the xDrive wagon and no RWD (which is a possibility), there might be no manual wagons at all?

That would be a deal breaker for me. I don't want any part of x-drive. By the way, you have my two previous cars, a Z3 M Coupe and an NB Miata. I miss both equally.

With Estoril Blue II, what choices are you given in the UK for interior. Anything beyond black, beige and coral red (such as saddle brown or everest grey?)
