Does the steering wheel on the Sportline still have that red stitching? I have on order a MG 335i with Grey leather and the black/aluminum trim. The red stitching looks really out of place. Does the M-sport have a different steering wheel?

Eh, at least my 2013 M-Sport Nav will have more stuff on it than my 2009. So, in essence, I'm still getting an "upgrade." The current iDrive was okay for me. I never really needed it to be faster or have sharper graphics. I mean we can't even watch movies while driving. My eyes will be on the road 90% of the time.

With the 80Gb drive, I have yet to fill it up with music. And I even had songs on there twice. Weather radar would sell it for me though. :-) Yet, I'm not sure if that is in the 2013 non-next generation or not. Good thing I got a lease. I'll just move on to the next gen when my lease is up.

I ordered mine with non staggered 18" 400s due to the all season tire restriction. Kinda like the 18s better than the 19s anyway....

I ordered mine with the staggered 18s. I would prefer the A/S, but am hoping that the Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFTs come out in 225/45R18 and 255/40R18 by the time I have to replace the tires. Those tires are far more likely to be available for the 18" wheels, than the 19", in the near future.

We don't get that much rain or snow here, but I am willing to give up a little performance if it means I only have replace the tires half as often. I realize that 18" A/S partially defeats the purpose of getting the staggered arrangement, but I am after the best balance of cost and performance I can get. This will also be my only vehicle and I will likely have to drive it in the rain sometimes.

I know there are many people that think the 19s and 20s look better, but I think the 18s look fine. The 18s will also be cheaper to replace.

Skipped them, I think the 18s are better looking, plus cheaper to replace, plus better ride with larger sidewall.

Skipped them. Actually, I got 18" A/S mixed. Not sure why they come that way. But, that's what the order sheet says. But judging from the configurator fail on the website, what I get may be different than what I actually ordered. lol

I also ordered 18" A/S mixed. Then someone noticed that the order guide specifically states:
Quote:
2PE requires ordering ZPT
So I pointed this out to my CA. He assured me (at first) that the ordering software would not allow invalid options. I told him, that if he was 100% sure that I was going to get 18" staggered with A/S, then we could leave it alone. After further research, he decided I had better change the tires from ZAS to ZPT, if I wanted to be 100% sure that I would get staggered wheels.

Assuming they really don't allow 2PE and ZAS, I figure one of three things would happen:
1) They automatically replace ZAS with ZPT
2) They automatically send me non-staggered wheels
3) They delay the order while they check with me to find out whether I want (1) or (2)

Since either (2) or (3) would be unacceptable to me, I had my CA change my order to ZPT.

Hey Pete I see you are in Bergen County. I am looking for a good NJ dealer. Who did you order from?

I tried building a M-Sport Alpine White with Coral red. Found out this combination is not possible. Hehe.
