Thanks my friend! I appreciate your request, because it does give the viewer a better idea of how the Mineral Grey shows in different lighting situations. I look forward to the pics of your Mineral Grey sportline. Please do share when you get it my friend! Cheers!

I just saw this video of a Frozen Grey Bimmer. I'm not much into the whole "Matte" thing, but wow....In the future, if I want a change, I wonder if this could be done to our F30s:

As for me, I really like the HUD. It has saved me a cuople of times from getting speeding tickets simply because, I find myself sometimes going up to 75 or 80 mph without even realizing it. Yes, when I see an open straight-away and notice no cops, I put the Bimmer into Sport Mode and just hit it down the road....

Also the HUD has been great for navigation. So for me, the HUD has been quite useful and a nice demo 'show-piece' to let friends see....

The only thing I would maybe change, would be the ability to choose the color of the HUD, instead of having just white in the day, orange at night. Just to have some variety. But overall, I like it....

Is the trim in the interior burl or the blck/grey-ish anthracite? BTW this is exactly what I want to order one the mSport is available :0)

I dont know about the Nav Pkg, but I will get the: Premium pkg, Prem Sound, Cold weather, xenons, and steering.

Do you feel you lack 335i power, or no need since the N20 is sexy?

Try to keep her low. Thanks a ton for the pick and CONGRATS on a sexy choice.

Great pics....does your interior have the wood trim with the inlay? If so, could you post a picture of what this looks like?

Not to speak on the OP's behalf (sorry malc!) but that's anthracite wood trim, not burl. I have the same in mine.

The burl is a more 'orange-brown' in shade, if that makes sense!

I didn't have the opportunity to test-drive a 335i, so I can't give you an answer in regards to feeling a lack of power with my 328i. BUT I think that the N20 employed in the F30 has TONS of power for a driver like me. I can get to 80 or so mph without breaking a sweat. Still haven't gotten to 4000 rpms (Yes, I admit it, I'm still baby-ing our precious 328i ).When I put our Bimmer into Sport mode, my wife and I can't believe the 'jolt' we get from changing modes. My son always tells me "Daddy! Zoom Zoom!" Passing cars on the short stretch of highway that I take when running errands, merging into highway traffic off the ramp with ease, hitting it on straight-away roads, taking curves with such grace, etc....That is what I have gotten with this N20 engine. While yes, it does sound like a diesel engine (doesn't matter to me one bit), it has truly impressed me what this turbo engine can do!

No problem with the pics. I plan to take some more if weather permits and I if I have free time. Thanks for the compliment my friend! Cheers!

Thanks for clearing this up my friend. I do agree with you that the burl does have this 'orange-brown' character to it....That's why I'm glad I have the anthracite wood trim. For me it gives the interior a very classy feel.

Hey Malc, do you have std suspension? If so, how is the ride? Some of the reviews suggest it is a bit 'soft' for what is ostensibly a sports sedan.
