no-line to a line exchange

so I'm 1 month into my new no-line f30 and the BMW event is on for team usa and I'm pretty sure the best line out there is the sport line, its just perfect, now I'm thinking about trading my 1 month old for the sport line, any one thought the same?

Won't you lose your shirt? If you've already had it for a month they are going to claim its value depreciated significantly so it's not like you are just going to pay a few grand difference for a Sport Line.

I debated the Sport Line vs Base when I made my order. I ended up ultimately going with the Base model due to the fact that I knew I'd ultimately change the wheels/tires and get coilover suspension regardless of the line. The $2500 I saved ($2280 cost?) I will have to put towards those modifications. The only thing I'm really missing out is the sport seats. I didn't have a chance to sit in the F30 sport seats when I ordered, but the side bolsters didn't look as dramatic as the E90 sport seats so that pretty much sealed it. Not to mention I wasn't a fan of the extra silver trim on the bumper and the red trim line going across the dash.

Now if I was in the boat you're in where you find yourself wanting to trade-in... I can imagine it would probably be at least a $2-3k hit and if your state doesn't calculate sales taxes on only the difference like California... you're in a for a big hurt ($5-8k loss). That's a lot of money for personalization.

the bolsters are actually VERY pronounced.

my wife is small and likes them tight, i get in and i can barely fit until i adjust them.

Chances are you'll lose 5K - 8K in a immediate trade. As said above, your better option would be to customize you car. Add a few performance options like the suspension and wheels and perhaps consider putting in sport seats and I bet you'd save money and have some better options than even a normal sport line.
