There is no such thing as $29,000 320i as the base model is $32,750. The price on a 320i with the sport suspension and an MT is $35,100.

Why BMW did not include Koni FSDs as standard equipment on the E9x is something I will never understand as the OEM dampers were garbage.

And what if they do? Some (and perhaps many) Ford parts are very good.

And while we are at it BMW used GM parts (the AT in the E9x 328)

I don't think Jaguar is expecting to (or needs to) achieve sales volumes comparable to the 3 Series and will remain a less main stream more exclusive brand.

I think the color (which is great) has a lot to do with it as NYC is a sea of black, gray and white BMWs. Your color really stands out and would certainly get my attention.
