I did get a kick out of this one however:

Why does the US M Sport model on display have no fog lights, unlike the European model?

For improved race capability. We need the air intakes for air. That’s why the fog lights are out. Because you have more driving on the racetracks than in Europe...

If I'm not careening down mountains and riverbeds or skidding across sandy beaches in my SUV, I'm winding out on racetracks with my bimmer. Local streets and highways are for sissies.

Ah, those Americans...
Exactly, sounds like they are saving $20 on M Sport in US. Why not put slim LED strips?
Well at least they are revising the front license plate bracket.
I also believe but within a year/two the options should improve otherwise pple will leave BMW. Seriously I think merc and Audi beat BMW in many categories in this class I.e. 3 series. All BMW got is superior handling. Most buyers don't care and while I do, I do not believe a significantly more expensive car worth it.
My 1st love was 2006 BMW 325i Sport + Prem 6MT but I married the 2016 M3 BSM MDCT.
