Yeah, I didn't want to wait that long, which is why I went ahead with the '14. I didn't know about the wheel change when I ordered mine, though, so it's funny how that turned out.

Very nice. I'll be anxious to see it.

From Ferric wheels I've seen before, I think my powdered wheels are slightly darker, but only slightly. It's certainly the look I was going for. When will...

Ha!

This is our third 3er wagon, the first of this generation. We've long been fans, so I am glad to see others joining the club.

Eventually? Everything, really.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great car for what it is. My complaints are all of cliché bitching that you hear on BMW boards about the Lexus brand. It was just so...

A quick review: This will be my daily/work driver and dedicated mutt taxi, keeping my X6M for...

I like what I see so far, all but the two-tone leather combos. Not sure how I feel about that.

I wondered the same thing about the seats with active/cooling, as each of my 6ers were equipped with them. Still, I've had numerous other active/cooling seats in BMWs -- specifically, various...

No, same seats in the 2-door (I owned one of those before the GC), although the seats in the GC are bolted in a bit higher.

There's no denying that the GC is one of the most striking cars on the...

Oh, I hear you. I much prefer the look of the 20s, too. Powdercoating the 19s in black did help, though.

What wheels do you hope to get?

Already bought a set of those (and had them powdercoated) for my snows. They're perfect for that. Good luck!

Seems smart to give people an option, although I love the consoles in ours. I don't think the new X4 has a console at all, option or otherwise, so I hope they don't do away with it completely.

Here are a couple pictures of the 20" OEM wheels on my X6M, powdercoated in a color called "Stone Black," with an additional clearcoat layer for added shine.
