....it were here RIGHT NOW!

Seriously though, I would have liked for BMW to have made cooled seats as an option like they are for the 5-Series. Yep, that's all I have.....lol

Agreed. I'll miss this feature when I sell my CTS to get the 3er.

...it was actually a bulldozer so I could ram micnugget's F30. Then he'd be able to go join www.vwvortex.com.

But seriously, if you aren't joking... sorry you aren't enjoying the car. If you are joking, quit trolling on this awesome thread. lol

if BMW didnt make it sit so high stock, or gave the option to make it slightly more aggressive than a supposed 20mm drop on the M performance suspension

Unfortunately I'm not joking. I have had multiple issues with the car and am currently talking with BMW about remedies.

...if it was quicker in the 0-30mph range in comfort or eco pro mode.
...if the seat was a little higher off the ground without compromising head room.

I like mine exactly the way I built it...If I did it again, I might have taken a closer look at the BMW apps, but still not sure I would get it...

Push the foot feed a little harder. Only tip-in and response is lessened in these modes. You just have to do a little more work. Try some WOT starts in each mode.

it wasn't in the 111 production status it's been in for weeks, probably months.

What is with the Rosslyn plant and F30 M-Sport builds for Australia?
Fleet, do you know what's happening at Rosslyn?
