NEW Imperial Blue F30 owner!

I gifted myself on my b'day on 22nd Dec. I drove in morning 9am in my 2007 328xi sports and drove out with a 2013 328xi.

I knew my numbers before walking in and I waited to see what number he came up with. Then told him I will pay 300 under invoice and trade-in my car for X amt. He went to his manager and said OK. I felt a little guilty at first but then I consoled that they are trying to aggressively sell cars in last days of 2013 to attain some record. My lease is under $400 w/ zero down. My taxed zeroed out due to trade-in.

Imperial Blue/Beige leatherette
Navigation, realtime traffic, Enhanced Bluetooth + BMW Assist
Moon Roof
Heated seats

I got a base model as I am planning to buy a house soon and don't want to squeeze myself. I hate not having Lighting package but I guess later next year, those xenon lights will hit market and I will grab them.

First Impresssions:
I love the Navi and voice commands. The driver is lot smoother and fun. I switch to sports mode on stop lights to get that jump feel. The wheels are better than OK.

I am planning some simple mods now: performance grills, Al chrome trim inside, 35% tints.

Looking forward to seeing some of you at meets. Cheers

Hate to rain on your parade but if you want OEM xenon retro's they'll cost you a hefty 5-6k if and when they come out.

Otherwise you'll have to look to aftermarket kits (OneEighty's working on a set now).
