Saw an EB m sport going the other way on coro drive yesterday. Not sure what model.

Also took a browse around Brisbane BMW used cars after breakfast this morning. They had a 335i with 405M wheels. Quite different in real life. The machined part doesn't stand out much and the rest of the finish is grey. Not bad, and 20" wheels look quite normal on the f30.

I think I also saw spikey's rear turning onto compton rd this afternoon. It could have been a white f10 m sport though, not sure.

That would be me. I was on my way to garden city on Saturday.
I saw a black f30 I assume that was you? What did you apply to your car? It was shinny!!

Yea the 20" actually fit the F30 quite well... saw them on an 328 sportsline when I visited last... the missus asked "why don't ours look like that", to which I replied with the cost and she smiled....

Yea that was me haha... saw the front of a black F30 as I turned out, so must be you!

Anyone notice the large number of non-xenon F30's - with so many holiday visitors here atm, it seems to be a popular choice - seen only one black 328i with xenons so far.

The one option I regret not getting most is the Xenon's, while unnecessary for me, they look freaking awesome!

I'm tipping these are entry level models i.e. 320i or 320ds? The reason people get these models is to keep the price down and still get into a bimmer. I've never seen these models spec'd with Bi-Xenon as it is more of a statement/luxury item. The dealers would figure as much. I would think 320 models would all be existing stock, can't imagine many people custom spec a base model.

Me I optioned up a base model because my budget was really for the 320i. I decided to make a stretch for the 328i once I saw the relatively smaller price difference vs equivalent e90s.

Rationale was have a bottom of the range sportier vehicle than a really optioned up base vehicle. Performance was higher priority than toy count, so I sacrificed a few things. I still went way outside my 320i budget but I perceive I will be happier with a base 328i than the 320i well loaded

They are probably the bare bone ones with specs that no one wants.. i.e. No Xenon, angle eyes, Sunroof, luxury line.. no line etc.


(my car is a no line, )
