"I would be happier with my F30 if..."

A quick reply thread, unless you're +1ing!

Maybe you wished you just ticked that option box. Or didn't!
I'll start.

I would be happier with my F30 if the big block in front was the 30d, not 28i, not to say that I'm not enjoying my 328i! Brilliant engine, but I prefer the 30d.

And if you want to add a why:
330d wasn't on the market in time.

Or if you're completely satisfied, still post and tell us!

I wish I would have gotten sport seats. If it would not have been $100-150 more a month, I would have gotten an M-Sport lol.

I wish I had gotten the Sport Automatic. I initially thought the only difference was the paddles. Didn't realize it was was more cosmetic upgrade to the shifter and "extremely fast synchronized shifting".

--Sirius favorites gave off an audible alert instead of hoping you notice it on the screen
--I had sprung for the package that includes speed limits on the HUD
--it had more space to store stuff (a problem in all Bimmers, really)

I wish I had got the HK sound system, compass (I think that requires navigation), paddle shifters, sport seats.
I general I am happy with my 2012 335i
Konrad

P.S. I found the compass. I followed the directions in the manual about setting up the compass and it worked.

Oh, and I'd like to add that I WISH I went with the Imperial Blue colour instead of the Alpine White. I knew I should've listened to my Mom!

I love my manual seats, but I can't seem to find the right seating position. I go from sitting too upright to too reclined.

Maybe one day...

It had a cinema-style buttered popcorn maker and a kick-ass Pac-Man machine in the back.

I haven't ordered mine yet, so this is a "pre-emptive" wish. I wish that BMW's product planners would get over themselves and open up the color palette so that people could order the car they want without being pigeon-holed into an arbitrary set of plastic and chrome bits (aka "lines").

Hmmm, I just like the look of Imperial Blue now. LOL

I like the White and Black contrast I've created on my car but the Blue and Black contrast would've looked better.

Someone posted a YouTube video on this forum with a professional instructor showing how the seat should be positioned. I followed the advice and am now much more comfortable in the car.
