Congratulations on the beautiful ride! I'm liking the F30 more and more!

Sucks for us in the US/Canada that we don't get the international model like you guys do (no reflector in the front and rear amber turn signals). BMWNA can you ever fix this?

Congrats! Grey exterior + red interior is a very nice combo. Porsche often uses that combo to advertise their higher end 911s. Looks great.

Looks great, congrats!

I like the head-on shot, I have to say the design of the inner headlight housings going into the open grill edges is growing on me more and more.

Are the AE as bright as the new 5 series which are used as DRL?

I'd like to hear from some of you guys that really know the answer to this. Is a "break-in" period really necessary any more, or not?

yes it's still necessary!

today's problem aren't the engines (they dont really need a break in no more) but the differentials and the gear boxes need a break in.

I don't have good experience with GoodYear RFTs (my F10 came with them), but this is the next gen RFT I know.

In EU(or elsewhere?) the 19"wheels come with :
-Bridgestone RFT
-Continental RFT
-Pirelli RFT
I thought E90Fleet told us that a few weeks ago.

I guess you can't go wrong with either of them including the nextgen GY(I have a slight preference for the Potenzas in theory)

the best ever selection

Congrats for the new lovely BMW F30, the 328i variant and thank you for the pictures. I checked all the test and reviews made for it. all agreed it is better than its predecessor in every way. I believe for the first time the concerned people in BMW made the 3 series the way it should be especially after exterior, interior refinements and extensions they applied for the whole dimensions of the car. Moreover, the perfect 4 cylinder engine that sounds like a 6 cylinder in response and performance as well as the 8 speed ZF AT. Its only now that you can get a real BMW of 5 or 7 features but in the new 3. You definitely made the perfect choice by having this lovely car. The body color is so elegant and the interior color combi is really of a sporty touch.We shall be waiting for the pics of the sporty 19" wheel replacement as it will be the first time for me to see those wheels on car color different from the official launch red body color.
