There is a mistake concerning the MSport wheels which are 19" and 18" and not 18" and 17".

Any picture of what the manual will looks like(mainly the shift lever) Wondering if it will be long like current e90 or short like a 1 series.

Never mind, found the pic

This may seem like the stupidest thing to complain about, but did everyone see the cup holders/storage area does not have a cover? I mean, what if I don't want to have the little tray and/or a bottle of water/coffee there and I just want it covered up? There is no door...

Otherwise, from the pictures I like the exterior. I am not thrilled about the amber look of the gauges, but I am hoping the "amber/white" switching will also switch the color of the gauges.

My problem now is that for a loaded 335i (with all packages), it comes out to approximately $55-$56k, which is essentially the same price as a 2012 A6 Premium Plus with Side Assist and Sport. Never owned either a BMW or Audi, so it would be my first time venturing to the German side. But I would think if they are the same amount, I'd take the higher class (5 series competitor).

Regardless, does anyone have any info about either the cup holders and/or switchable illumination? Does it only control the ambient lights?

When you dont want the cupholders, put the included tray over them...

it actually does make sense. smaller diameter = firmer ride (less cushion). so luxury car drivers will want a softer ride, they get cushy tires ... thats their logic

okay, the softer ride part does make sense, but having different overall diameters doesn't. doesn't that mean different speedo/computer calibration and potentially gearing implications. just doesn't seem like they'd go through all the trouble. also, doesn't make sense to have a wheel well designed to be fit by a larger and smaller overall diameter wheel/tire combo, and then have the sporty model fill up less of that wheel well than the lux model

for a change that small no, the acceptable speedo and gearing discrepancies would be fine - when u start changing diameter by the inches, then u reach those issues. but i agree with you on the wheel well size, i just dont get it. im def waiting on an m-sport but i have the hardest time looking at that gap. its so god damn atrocious (especially on an m-sport model) and i know any attempt to lower these cars will be a bitch

I see the M-Sport info has been updated sometime since I last checked.

Good to hear that both the 18" and 19" wheels will have staggered widths. I actually like the 18" style rims so will have a bit more sidewall height and slightly greater immunity to tire / rim damage and lower tire replacement costs.

I can't believe that beige leather is an option but there will be no way to get gray leather that is now much classier since most of the interior remains black. I guess beige is for those who get wood trim.

No way I can do full black interior in Texas, and I am not getting wood so will have to get my wife used to the idea of the red leather.

Got to first post and select M-Sport tab.

Pretty sure the info came from post #392 - http://www.f30post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=392

The 18" 400M wheels are 225/45 & 255/40 front & rear
The 19" 403M wheels are 225/40 & 255/35
