Check out that plate mount on the white car. I haven't seen one like that yet. Still very ugly compared to what could be done.

What about those rims on the gray car? I've seen them in the literature but not sure what trim level puts them on that car.

How does that red trim inside look in person? We need more and bigger photos.

Pictures are bigger. Don't know why Imageshack resized them!

Just went to the dealer for a quick snap. Red trim...ehhh...don't like it IMO.

They look awesome! It looks like the sport line steering wheel has active cruise control buttons, the first I have seen in any pictures of the F30.

Man, I think those horizontal dash trim accents are awful and almost ruin the interior for me.

Cool! Hopefully at US dealers soon, too. The Sport interior looks like it's got quite a few of the electronic options, but no "flappy paddles." They are half of the fun, if one goes with the automatic.

How does the white look in person with the lines on the car?

How is the sport interior feel, especially with the aluminum trim?

Is that mineral grey on the other car?

Did you get to play with the tech pkg (screen), is it worth getting for 2,550?

That's the non-sport automatic. The sport auto with paddles is still an option on the Sport Line.

I'm 100% with you... If you get the sportline the sport automatic is a MUST have.

Can you ask your dealer if ANY of the cars they received had the paddle shifters. My local dealer was told by BMW Canada that

"there are no paddle shifters available on the 328i at all"

Does not make sense to me that BMW Canada would drop the ball like this.

I think someone in head office is either clueless or this is a cruel joke.

This would be a deal breaker for me.

Will have to wait and see when the vehicles arrive if this indeed is the case.

I will go with the clueless one here. All the videos with sport had the paddle shifters and if you go to the bmw website configuration you can add the "Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles". Located in oprtion, under Performance options.

That point being said why the "Fudge" do you have to pay $500 for "Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles". If you get a sport model shouldn't that be standard?

And even the paddles suck, much rather have the old style where each paddle does both things, i had that shit down to a science
