Mike's MG 335i M Sport

My review of the car: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=734119

She is finally home! Got her all cleaned up and took some pictures. I really am in love with Mineral Gray. If anyone wants a picture of anything specific let me know and I'll post it.



































As requested here are some night shots:





Back seat with welcome lighting when you open the door:


Front seat with welcome lighting as you open the door:




Ambient lighting is subtle but here is a comparison of the white and amber lighting:

The M Adaptive suspension is very very good, feels really solid in both comfort and sport modes but softens it up in comfort and firms it up in sport just enough to feel like it should. Not jarring and not floaty in any way. Just solid and firm.

I got 32 mpg using comfort mode on the 1,500 mile drive home. It's a very comfortable long haul driver. I drove 21 hours in one day and was very comfortable which I attribute mostly to the sport seats. They are great!

The power delivery in sport mode is exceptional. Immediate, eager, and plenty of it. I haven't gotten her on any good twisties yet so I can't comment on the handling just yet.

I was hesitant about the Burl Wood Trim but it looks really great, especially with black leather. It seems darker than my E92's Burl trim which is a good thing! The pictures make it look lighter brown than it actually is. Still wish I could have got Anthracite Wood but it's all good

Oh, one more thing. The M Sport Steering wheel is outstanding, absolutely worth the price of the M Sport Package alone.

Since my wait has just begun, this is very encouraging to read..
Although your pics make me want my car NOW!!!

Also want the M Performance floor mats that were shown off recently. Haven't seen them in the wild yet though.

I know the feeling, man... if it wasn't for these forums I would have gone mad waiting. It was always encouraging to see others posting their delivery pictures.

The grills do look great, really changed how the nose looks. I installed the grills in 15 minutes using the guide posted on the forums, super easy!

I am considering it but not too seriously. The reflectors don't bother me that much. I would like to swap out my turn signals for LEDs though, the thread on that seemed to have died so not sure if the guys working on that ever found ones that worked.
