Why do some of the red F30's have black mirrors and some red&black mirrors?

In the USA if you choose Sportline you get black mirror caps.
Elsewhere you can choose to have body colour mirror caps or black mirrors caps with Sportline

Any pics of melbourne red with red leather interior? That's such a crazy combo, I think it might work....

Yeah, I was very surprised how much fun the 328i is to drive. My M3 obviously has more power, but these cars (N20) are going to be winners for sure. The 335i will probably always be faster, but with a tune, I'm betting the N20 will be fast enough!

I replaced a 2010 A4 with it, and this car is WAY better!

I don't think he meant your photography skills per se. Seriously though, those two cars in that shot is hotness to the max.

MR/ Dakota Beige is really growing on me... it's going to be a tough decision by the time I have to lock in my spec.

(F30) Official MELBOURNE RED F30 Photo Thread

I love this car! The auto stop does in fact shudder a bit, but everything else is even better than I remember from the test drive! You can instantly feel a big difference when you go from ECO to COMFORT or SPORT.

I had posted on a few other threads, as I was confused as to which instrument cluster I would receive. As you can see, I got the extender cluster even though I did not order the Technology Package. My CA believes that this is due to ordering Premium Package (they had a Sport Line in the showroom w/o tech pkg or premium, and it had the regular cluster).

(F30) Official MELBOURNE RED F30 Photo Thread

Had her one week. 335i sport, HK, Nav, Xenon, Comfort, Assist, Apps, Tint.
Have done about 600km. Starting to let the engine open up a bit now. Sound is amazing and power delivery is instant and near linear. Just a joy to drive. Look forward to the end of the day and weekends now. Not a bad way to start the day either.

Will get out to the track in a couple of weeks.

I really liked the 18" sport line rims. I think they have a raw look to them and IMO one of the best looking BMW rims in a while. Hence why I have them on the car. Runflats have come a long way, and not a bad tire but a weak point of the car. Easy fix though.

I have a set of PS2's 235 40ZR18 on order going on the stock rims. It will give a little more tire and I'm sure some FUN grip. Will post a review when I get them on.

The wait is worth it boys.....I had your pain but mine is over SUCKERS!!!.....sorry that was mean canadian are supposed to be nice
