and the tips I got...were for the 328i, thought they would fit..but they do NOT..so I'll have to wait I guess for the accessories to become available...

Also, I do not have any floor mats yet, as they are not available..they do not even have a part # for it...so when they come in, I'll go get them!

How's the steering , stuff compared to your E92 335 coupe , I am trading my E92 328 xi coupe love the ride but live in Jersey and 1 wheel and 3 tires later I just had enough , I will order the tips and mats before the car gets here , do you use a iPod and did you have to get the cable for it ?

steering is amazing...feels really really soft...not really sure how to explain..

I did use my Ipod...and the connector came with the car..my CA put it in the owners manual when going over it.


Let me know if you find the tips..and where

Beautiful vehicle

I just saw this at my dealer when picking up my 328

It is amazing...BMW enhanced it so much

It can easily be mistaken for an x5, pictures dont do it justice

All the best

Also I'm gonna guess that you're either Hindu or Buddhist (I'm Hindu) (I also live in the A). I noticed the small golden statue you've got in the ride already. Can't tell if it's Ganesh or Buddha. I'm guess Ganesh.
