Estoril blue exterior with a red leather interior. How bad would that look? I'm a die hard red leather fan but I'm really liking the relative exclusivity of estoril blue.

Thanks for posting that! Once you see it with M Sport, all the other lines don't look quite right, IMHO.

I hear ya but I don't want or need a track car. I enjoy a sporty ride but don't need a track car feel for everyday driving, I do however enjoy the occasional track session (usually 3-4 per year) therefore I like driving a car that will allow me to enjoy the dual duty I need my car to perform. I track my car for the fun and the car enthusiast in me.

A good set of tires, brakes or track pads, ecu tune when possible and exhaust are my usual mods. Throw in a few esthetic mods here and there, just so the car doesn’t look like every other car out of the show room and I'm happy!

Cheers!

This video shows that BMW has put some great thought into little details for the F31.

I mean, yeah, I'd prefer that it was, say, a 2L or 2.5L turbo 6, but the base 6 is just too lacking for the weight of the xDrive touring.

I'd consider the 4cyl though I'd really prefer the 330d or 335i, xDrive, 6speed.
I agree with an automatic transmission its pretty underpowered but with a stick and a few bolt on mods and a flash it equals or betters the original E90 330i.

The primary reason I went with a 328xiT over an A4 avant was the 200hp four cylinder and no manual transmission. In this segment in North America its the only real wagon IMHO choice until they give us what we really want.

I played around with configurator on bmw.com and it seems that it already knows model code for EU 335i touring, but for US only 328i touring. Of course it might be that id did ont guess US codes correctly.
Instuctions for playing were found at this post.
URL with EU 335 touring would be something like this and EU 328i touring something like this and US 328i touring something like this

And when will it be ready for pick up with the m package?

Also can the wagon be pre-ordered with the air flow and exhaust kit from bmw parts when i do ED?

Thanks,

George

I am wondering if they will come up with M3 touring for this gen. I assume it will be gorgeous too.

Bummer the 320d won't make it to the US. My 328i e93 drives well, but the mileage sure sucks; it'd be nice to have better choices.

Cloth and Alcantara seating in addition to leather and vinyl.

Diesels with 6-speed manual transmissions.

Only not for us here in the US... (deep sigh)

Re potential M3 Touring, I really wish they would. Won't happen though. The numbers have never stacked up for them, though it's odd to me that this is the case given the success of the RS4 Avant
