i love the kick-open feature of the trunk! just wish the bmw also had a one-touch close option for the trunk. I hate having to actually pull it down and "slam" it (i.e., use force).

Hm. must have been the 09-11 model years that required it with ZCW. I remember we had to get it for the 2009 328i, but i might have missed it during the spec out for the 2012 one.

Yup. You had to get cold weather package to get rear-fold down seats. Kinda silly, but I guess they figured people would want it for skis and snowboards?

What happens if a dealer allocation goes unused? (How likely is that to occur?)
Does the dealer get an "extra" allocation for a later week?

In my case, it's not that I don't like the new 4-cyl 328. It's more that of the 6-cyl engines, BMW had theirs to pretty much perfection. And it was an inline 6, not that "V6" craziness you find...

AG - car is built in Germany. SA - car is built in South Africa. No difference in the build quality, but cars from SA generally take longer to deliver (longer transit time on the boat).

Ooh, that sounds like fun going with the caravan. Too bad I'd be on the very last part of the leg so I'd probably miss out. (And I'd take the local roads to avoid the DE 1-95 toll...)
