So waaaay back on page 1, the initial set of information indicated 2 items that I'm curious about:

1) Short shifter for 6MT - Is it a: A) actual short-shift kit (i.e. change in the fulcrum point), B) shorter gear selector above the fulcrum point, or 3) just a different selector knob.

2) Suspension - Initially there was discussion that the adaptive suspension might be standard for the U.S. and/or the non-adaptive suspension would be firmer than the Sport Line. Clearly the adaptive suspension is still optional on U.S.-spec cars, but is there any difference between the non-adaptive suspensions on the Sport v. M-Sport?

Sport and M Sport suspensions are identical, I don't know about the short shifter but the knob itself is definitely shorter than the standard one. Some BMWs like my 135i come standard with a short shift kit so I really hope this is the case with the M Sport but I forgot to ask my sales advisor when I ordered mine last Friday...oh well, I guess I'll find out once the car gets here. The only manual car they had on the lot was a 328i Sport Line so I drove that just to see if the changes to the manual transmission were noticeable and they definitely are! Shifts are smoother and at the same time have a more positive engagement. Tough to describe but it's definitely an improvement over the E90s and the E82 that I've had.

I have read otherwise many places that the Msport suspension is lightly different.

It is standard in the US but looking at the BMW UK spec sheet it doesn't appear to be standard:

Estoril Blue with Coral Red Dakota Leather & 19 " wheels

Can't wait - delivery will probably be November
Wow, Estoril Blue with Coral red !!!! Your are brave ! I hope you are leasing your car and not purchasing it ! This colour combo would diminish the value of your car by several thousands $$$$ when it comes time to trade it in.
If you are really set on Coral red, may I suggest that you go with Alpine white, Mineral Grey or BSM.
On the configurator, estoril blue & red dakota are fine together. I like !

I have just ordered a 2013 F30 335i M-Sport Line in mineral gray over red dakota leather. I decided to go with the 8-speed automatic this time, and according to the BMWUSA website's "Build Your Own" feature, the M-Sport Line includes the M steering wheel with paddles, but apparently this is misleading. The paddles show up as an extra-cost item in the "Options" section. My bet is the website is wrong; however I'm getting them anyway. Anyone else run across this?

Alcantara vs. leather

Has anybody got feedback on the cloth/alcantara combination vs leather? I like the look of the cloth/alcantara combination but I'm worried about durability and ease of care vs leather. Concerning comfort, I would imagine that the cloth/alcantara seats are mor comfortable than leather.
