And, anyone know for sure what the upholstery is in the M Sport - from the configurator on the BMW site it seems to be Leather - but I was expecting the Alcantara seats - which would have meant I didnt need to put heated seats in. But with leather I think you need the seat heating for those cold winter mornings..!!??

Thanks for any help you can give.
Having moved from a 330d E92 to my current 535d F10, I didn't think I'd ever consider anything other than a large 6cyl diesel, until I drove the new 328i.
It's slightly slower on paper, but in reality it feels much quicker and it's a lot more fun to drive, due not only to it being higher and more freely revving, but far more importantly because there's absolutely no turbo lag and that's the aspect which has convinced me to change next year when they launch the coupé.
Take one for a drive; you won't be disappointed.
