Yes, it'll be possible to order before July. As to deliveries, I'd guess that end of July will be the earliest for Europe.

First time i actually like 3 serie sedan M sport kit. Always thought they looked like cheap aftermarket tuning compared to the clean coupe versions...
Cant wait for a black one next year!

Winning! This f30 335i screams my name. I'm pretty sure I'll be swapping out the steering for an M3 steering when it becomes available, but aside from that, it's been a while since I fell in love with a new BMW. I liked the e46, hated the e90 when it first came out (STILL not a fan of the e90) ... but this car changes everything. Loving it!

I love this color and I'm a big fan of the steering wheel. I hope it steers as well as my e90. I also hope C & D was off base when they claimed the sport seats are softer now. Don't mess with a good thing!!!

Collectively speaking, I think the car is a homerun. However, like other gripes about the steering wheel, mine are with the brakes. Come on BMW. The time has past for a sportier model to not come with attractive brakes. Literally, every other manufacturer of sport cars has the nicely colored calipers to further enhance the performance and look of their cars.

I'm speaking purely on aesthetics here. I know performance wise they are the masters of the monoblock caliper.

Cheers,
Tony

Take a look at the M sport info on the board, there will be at least an option at some point for M brakes, the pix showed the calibers in blue looking very similar to those shown on the new M5...

Was hoping to see the 19" M-Sport Wheels...

Not too impressed with the wheel selection for the F30.

Hopefully my perception is completely wrong.

was just sitting in a B8 S4, now those are some nice seats!
I bet the seats are the same as the E90, just trimed differently?

E46 has wider seat through!

Yep, I think you're right. The bolstering looks about the same, just that the e90 tapers into the seat more at the top, and of course the seam lines are down the middle instead of across like in the E90. I like across better, but I'm sure the F30 seats will look good in person.

The BMW F30 look amazing. I can't wait to see them on the road and to start modifying this car!

That dead pedal is hideous and totally out of character with the cockpit.

A picture someone was able to take of the 335 M-pack at the autoshow in Brussels with the 19" rims and blue M Sport brakes.
I hope I'll be able to get to it because it looks ilke it's in a more private area for customers.
