Here's the Canadian F30 ordering guide. 335i comes standard with Sport Line and 328i is standard with Luxury Line.

F30 ordering in Canada has started.

Pricing will be released "on time for the official Canadian launch of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan at the Montreal Autoshow in mid-January 2012."

Things are making a little better sense now. Sports seats can be had in any line (standard with 335i).

Navigation package gives you the larger 8.8" screen.

What about sports suspension? Is that no longer an option?

It doesn't look like it's on here I would also like to know if we can get sports suspension or Adaptive M Suspension (2VF) like our neighbours to the south.

Wow, you all get way more standard equipment than we do in the States. Standard Xenons, power seats, extended cluster display, dimming mirrors, etc.

Then again... you probably pay more too...

I don't see any mentioning of the Adaptive M Suspension either.

Yup.

I don't understand why they don't make the heated steering wheel standard on the 328i also. I mean, I doubt that it would be ordered without it in all of Canada so to simplify things further just make it standard equipment. Other than that nothing looks too surprising. I'd like to know what the pricing is like on these things though.

Good to see Mirror caps are optional!

Hoping U.S. doesn't get stuck with stupid black mirrors, on sportline models.

Optional is fine for those who like the black caps, but I think it looks cheap, and it would be a deal breaker for me.

Body color caps are required on my cars.

Leave the mis-matched mirrors to Audi.

Thanks for sharing. Also interested in Adaptive M Suspension or even sport suspension. I presume details for M-Sport F30 and xdrive will come later?

There are items missing from the Canadian standard equipment list that the USA version has though, eg Alarm is standard equipment in the US. You're right about paying more too. Our dollar has been on/near par for years and the base price differs by thousands of dollars still. Closer to $10k on M3.

Looks to me that our Canadian friends have even less freedom in customizing their F30.

picking a 328i is automatically a Luxury Line, unless you pick Modern Line
picking a 335i is automatically a Sport Line, unless you pick Modern Line

unless i am just missing the point entirely... which is strongly possible.

Anyways Canadians probably prefer to wait for the Xi version.

I think it's the same for all regions? On the UK site, it lists all the available models with the lines applicable, I'm assuming the lowest price is the stock and you pay more for another line. Unless someone can verify, I thought you could pick a bone-stock 328/335 and then add as you please but it looks like you'll have to start off with a line and option it from there.

Not bad... I'm not too optimistic about the price of that premium package. It's interesting that leatherette isn't available either.

And then there's the issue of that god-awful front license plate mount too...

Thanks for sharing! I'm curious too about the part where you get a default line on the 328 vs 335. That just seems odd. Also don't see any mention here about the speed limit identification and heated rear seats???

I think the separate options are about $2k as they recently have been, down from $2.5k. But, in the same sense there are more separations of option packages so that you have to buy more packages to get what you want.

Expect about $1k more over last years price. We get raped up here, it's disgusting. Law of numbers works against us in Canada

So nothing to replace the 323?, I don't think a base 328 will be in the 35k$ range, if the 328 is around 42k, it seem they will loose a lot of buyers..
323 was good value for the money

The 320i will be announced around March i think. This will be the new 323.

Im going to wait for the 320i pricing equipmnt list first. If Bmw allows navigation and xenon lights on the next gen 320i, ill def get it over 328 since its $6-$7k cheaper.

I doubt that'd be the case... BMW will force people into the more expensive model if they want the premium options.

Glad to see that rear lights will be LED before LCI.
