I'd only worry about the HD radio if you upgraded to the HK, not going to notice it as much on the stock system.


Forgot about variable sport steering.

Just a bit curious with the title, is there anyone NOT custom building their f30?...

On topic: the adaptive m chassi is a must, the ACC Stop&Go is really cool and effective - put on the autopilot and just chill in your seat )

How about the Coral Red? It looks great and complements the M Sport ideology but will it resale??
Why don't you go for Metallic black with coral red/black interior ? Red interior, although not as popular as black, is OK for resale. Much better than beige !!! Black on red is a very sporty and popular combo !

I'm feeling ya man.

I did consider this combination but the missus don't want me to get Red interior.. I think i'll have to over-ride her decision.

Think you might have solved my colour combo dilemma!

Not sure, if i wasn't so fussy I could probably get a deal with existing floor stock especially at the end of December when they are extremely motivated to move 2012 stock!

I would just think about what you are going to use the most, and work out from there. Suspension, navigation and brakes are probably the most important. In your case you would probably get your money's worth out of the radio so if you can squeeze in a fourth option I would go with that.

I picked the sapphire black for my ride because I like the look of the vehicle overall - a bit more subdued and classy IMO. Nevertheless, the blue is a fantastic choice. Two different feels. The black goes well with a suit and a nice dinner out, the blue goes well with your hat on backwards on a windy drive by the coast. Just comes down to your taste.
I have a Sapp Black on Beige atm but honestly I'm getting a bored of it right now and would like a fresh colour combination when I jump into the new car so that i'm completely sure it's a NEW CAR

I might go with the iPhone-BT hookup to get digital radio happening on my car via a Y-Cable. Can you or anyone confirm that would be feasible without the Extended Connectivity option ticked?

BT streaming only works with the enhanced BT, if thats what u meant?

Silver can never go wrong, one of few colors not hiding any shape or crest of the beautiful body
