I am extremely pleased with the looks of the Touring in general and this colour combination outside and inside.

The new satnav is amazing. Driving in the city where 3D animations are available, buildings are depicted in extreme detail down to a scale of 10m. The zoom function is much faster than the previous idrive generation.

Lots of other features that will take some time to figure out in all its details.
This is stunning. Inside and outside. Congratulations.

I thought the MSport package came with black trim around the windows instead of chrome?

I hope they don't over price the 320d in the US - assuming it makes here.

a beautiful car; and very practical.

The only problem I have with it, it's the price. It costs the same as the 520d.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback. I know its highly unusual to order the M-Sport with anything other than black interior, at least in Norway, but I am very happy with the way Veneto beige works out with the black roof liner and the tinted windows.

I was considering Tanzanite blue and individual interior for a moment, but had to draw the line somewhere. And I absolutely do not like rubber mats, maybe I will replace the beige mats with black velour in the winter

Btw optional equipment is not more expensive in Norway than Sweden or other countries, all taxes are linked to the weight, hp and Co2, and that is not so bad in case of the 320d thanks to BMWs Efficient dynamics

The chrome trim is a no cost option with the MSport package in Europe. As is the normal suspension.

I asked the dealer the same thing and it is not supposed to sound any different, I have not noticed any sound either, its purely for looks..

I really like the F31 and yours is veldig fin man!

that double exhaust made me think of my 320i, but unfortunately there is not such an easy solution available for petrol. If I want to do it it will be cutting the current pipe and welding a a double one to the existing exhaust. Also the diffuser needs to be cut and to cover up it needs something like the piece mentioned in an earlier post (which also needs painting too). So it is a lot more effort...

But I am sure you had a great weekend :-)

Is the end section of the 320i exhaust different from the 320d exhaust? Bummer... I was hoping to add twin pipes to my F31 320i when I receive it.

Very nice indeed and congrats. Im picking mine tomorrow with very similar spec. Alcantara interior and with adaptive suspensions seems to be the only difference. Enjoy

Those dual pipes are nothing but a y-connection attached to the single pipe, doesnīt give u any benefits besides a somewhat better look. An M Performance Exhaust on the other hand means you replace the whole rear silencer, giving you better sound, less weight and less backpressure --> minor performance increase but definetely worth it.

Nice car btw, congratz! Mine will hopefully be here next week, been waiting for over 4 months now
