That looks very nice. Good to see a Touring at last. Roll on 2 months when I should be getting mine.

Yes, in the middle. I've decided to have the M Performance interior in alcantara and carbon.

I am hoping my car goes ahead on the build date which is next Monday 25th March. I have also went for the M p interior. Saw this pic on the forum very recently and thought it looked really well

A very very nice looking car.
There is something about the looks of the Touring that really does it for me!

Nice one. Good to see the black front grill
Mine was swapped as soon as I got it back.

Beautiful. I really think the 3 looks complete as a touring. I think the 19 rims do look nicer, but would rather save on tyre costs and keep with the 18s... I've asked the lease company which dealership they've ordered with - no reply yet...

Love your tinted windows - alas as a lease the costs had to be minimised so I only did the bare essential extras...

Didn't someone post that the tyre costs are near identical between the 18" and 19"?

Buying a car based on how easy it is to keep clean is far too sensible!

i took 403's off mine at the last minute.. three weeks later i changed my mind, and checked tyre prices before ringing the dealer.

I found if you go to the right places the 19" were no more expensive, and in fact at my local tyre place they were cheaper.

Happy with that news, i rang my stealer to add the 403's back on... only to find the build was finished.
