Oh. Weird. That's interesting. I wonder why it was done this way. Anyhow, enjoy your ride! I'm still waiting for mine to be built.

Yeah, i will probably replace them with a set of coilover afterwards.
Also, sport automatic transmission is only available for 335i as standard . And i want all of these.

Hmmm.. I ordered a 335 sport line... I could swear that it's coming with the non-adaptable sport suspension. Maybe only the 335?

Huh? It looks normal to me. Am I missing something, here?

BTW, the car looks great. Congrats.

LOL. That's harsh.

There appears to be quite a bit of visible variation in the ride heights I have seen for cars on std suspension. Does anyone know if it settles down a bit over time?

I noticed that too. But upon stricter examination, I think it's the white color that makes it appear higher... since there is a very well defined wheel-well line. In real life, as you stand over the car, it will probably appear lower. None the less, the car is absolutely beautiful.

Agreed. I'm still hoping it drops a few millimetres once it's run in.

Black mirror caps are currently a $0 option for Canadian cars. They are not included by default.

Thank you!! Regardless, i will replace them with new coilover once they are available. However, standard suspension is pretty good for those who want to be sporty once in awhile. For those driving enthusiasts, sport suspension is a must have for sure.

hmm... mine is a March production... I'll have to double check. It's too late to change regardless.

Ultimately, I think it'll be fine. I guarantee that most won't notice a difference (or at least admit it ). In fact, I found my friends e90 335 way too jarring for everyday use.

Totally, my dealership has a demo car, and it is exactly the color combo u have. It looks mature and classic. White with black caps looks cheap.

haha, to be honest, i want the sport suspension as well. I just cannot wait that long. Therefore, i decide to replace them with coilover afterwards.

Hmm..your front bumper doesn't have that license plate thing sticking out. I saw another 328i today in Richmond and it had the thing sticking out.

congrats on your car. its very nice. I am probably leaning towards leasing a f30 since I haven't found a e90 335i that is to the spec that I want.

What options or packages did you order?
