G20 330i Sport ordered

After looking at a Merc AClass in relation to buying an A35 AMG, I decided it was too small.
The new Lexus ES is now in the showroom.
Great value, a great interior and generally a nice car except for its near 5 metre length.
Far too long for everyday use and my wife wouldnít let me have one.
330i Sport
Alpine White (again)
Oyster interior (again)
Comfort Pack
Premium Pack
Visibility Pack
Park assist Plus
HK speakers not on the configurator nor adaptive suspension, nor bigger Nav etc.
My present 328i is 7 years old next month.

She is.
She drives the Cayman 2.7 manual which is our other car.
We often swop cars,so itís not unreasonable for her not to want to go shopping in such a large car.

I did want to order a different colour way than my present car but none of
the other colours appeal to me.
If Bluestone was available, I would have gone for that.

You can or you will be able to have any colour you want within reason, if you're keeping the car a long time like your present car I'd investigate the individual options.

I believe they were referring to the fact you're able to request virtually any colour you like, whether it's on the configurator or not.
It will of course cost you....

The Premium pack includes electric memory seats and a sunroof.
Iím not interested in a sunroof but I have to have one to get the electric
memory seats.
You can look up the rest on the configurator but this Ďpackí business is probably
good for BMW but not the buyer.
You end up getting extras you donít need or want because they are packaged
with extras you do want.

Most aren't shown for any model the configurator only shows a tiny selection.

Doesn't mean they're not available as an example there are 135 different paint colours available for the G30 yet only around 7 or 8 on the configurator.

Have a play on here and see what you could have won, just a bit of fun they will be available in time for the G20 as well.

Yes I'd be interested to see if they did a deal on it as well.

My local BMW dealers laughed at me when I showed them an internet
brokers offer of 10% off.
I got a discount of just over 11% from another internet broker.
Iím happy with this, 11% is not bad off a car that isnít even launched yet.

Not bad for a new model not even out yet. I thought around the 7% mark.
