Hooo boy! AW M Sport is a cracking combination!

Sadly when I ordered back in early March, the M Sport hadn't been released, plus the 328i wasn't (and still isn't) available in 'Sport' either, so I had to settle for the old man's Luxury line instead If I was doing a config now I'd definitely go for the M Sport - possibly in Moonstone.

Fab Spacebug, wheels look amazing. What's the option you would most (or most not) recommend?

Well as I only have two options then I'd say my favorite from these is the Xenon lights - and F30 without them really looks quite bland.

Obviously the 19's are next on my list but this is a purely cosmetic thing - there are a few down sides to having 19's, such as cost of tires, increased road noise, higher fuel etc. But for me I had to have them, and they look sooo nice!

Next on my list, if my budget had've stretched to it would have been Pro Nav for the better screen and some of the toys (BMW Apps, BMW Live) which make the screen useful. As a basic idrive screen it's a little boring and doesn't really serve and purpose.

I've had an eventful day in the car today...

Somehow managed to select Sport+ when I got in the car (my ritual is to hit the driving mode button immediately after pulling away) and I didn't notice until messing around on the way to work this morning... Floored it going around a damp roundabout and ended up with a large amount of opposite lock being required!!! Certainly woke me up! Bloody good fun too. I think I managed to carry it off and make it look like it was deliberate.

On the way home I stopped off at a shop. As I was walking back to the car I noticed the car parked in front of me pulling out. The guy slipped backwards and smacked into the front of my car...! He noticed that he'd done it and panicked trying to get his car into first so he could make a swift departure! I legged it over the road and stopped him from driving off.

Anyway, really pissed off with the guy, he has put a nice dent and scuff right between the kidney grilles. Cheeky git even suggested that it may have already been there!

Admittedly the damage is minor - nevertheless I was fuming!

1800 (very enjoyable) miles and its damaged already...!

Damn Spacebug!

That is one fine looking F30! Awesome combo with the 19's, Xenons and AW.

Very fresh.

Thanks! Appreciate the comments. You posted the above about my car a few weeks ago..

I guess you must really like it!

Thanks NISFAN!

Went for black leather with hexagon and piano black trim. When the car arrived it had EBII trim...! I was a little annoyed but i'm kinda liking it now. Made me think about what other, maybe more fundamental, things that can go wrong on the options list.. I checked my order and it definitely says Hexagon and piano black!

Thanks Glackster. I always had to have 19's so the colour was forced upon me, i'm happy with it now though. EBII srill rocks though! I spent years with my E91 wishing it had 19's so was at the top of my list this time.

Here's a naff picture of the interior - wrong exposure..
I also ordered piano black and am now thinking I should of left it blue. It's grown on me a lot over the last few weeks drooling over the forum

Ha ha! Yup, totally.

The glossiness of the white is just perfect.

Looks really nice Spacebug - my Z4 was Alpine White and I really liked it in that colour, so it was between AW and Estoril for the F20. I think I'd have been happy with either

Thanks again for the comments guys.

Still loving everything about the car, with nearly 2000 miles on the clock.
