Fog lights are deleted on US spec M-Sport to enhance cooling.
This is Sport Line, so fogs are US spec.
Ahh, got ya. I remembered hearing the fog lights wouldn't be on the msport and I assumed it was for the rest of the lines as well; but, its understandably not.

The engine sounds whiny and underwhelming. The exhaust, on the other hand, sounds superb for a stock, non-Performance unit!

And yeah, those throws are massive.

BMW's are known to have long throws on their vehicles with manual transmissions.

The 8 speed has to be an improvement over the old 6 speed auto.

i think they're positioned fine imo. compared to the mini....they're leaps and bounds of improvement. i'll miss the pop-out cup holders though. that was clean...

at least the 4 banger wont sound like a honda will definitely be getting the 335i. the n20 gets great gas mileage and all but i just dont like it. it is really loud at idle. almost sounds like valves ticking but apparently it is normal

I hate this too. Also it should have a cover so you dont have to look at them, they look like shit, especially after you get crumbs in them. I guess we will wait for the aftermarket covers for these. Even the germans will have geh cup holders? sheeh, they are becoming lame like us.

On topic, the exhaust sounds great.

There's a tray that fits over the cupholders if you don't want to use or look at them.

I believe they have covers. I thought I saw in one of the videos released when the car was launched where the cover is removed to reveal the cup holders. I have always thought the hide away cup holders in the E90 to be a fantastic design and I think BMW regressed a bit with the new design. Right now it seems to me that if you put a slightly tall cup in there like a coffee mug or something and you drive a stick you will be hitting your knuckles against the cup. If it turns out to be so then the new design will be a total fail IMO.
