The color and optioning restrictions are annoying, aren't they? When I ordered, I was able to get an X-Line with sport seats and oyster interior. I'm extremely happy with this combo, but if I were...

Personally I think they're really overdoing it with all the proliferation of new models, which they've also done on the MINI side. They should take Apple's approach. Focus on a limited number of...
