Regarding the comparison of the 3er generation interiors, I actually am more partial to the E46 than the others. I particularly give it high marks in that the placement of the window switches...

Other than the alcantara bits and orange stitching there's essentially very little difference between the 135i and 1 M interior. Yeah, you get a real 'M' wheel with an M button on it, and a nice ZHP...

17 year member. I got into it for the discounts, which I've rung up 5 times so the fees have definitely been worth it.

Except for most of us it's missing a couple of doors. I'd far rather have an M3 than an M4, just as I'd rather have a 2GC than a 230 or 240 coupe.

Unfortunately, we're going to have to wait for...

320is

If the 320i makes sense, what about a 320is.

At the end of the E30's life they trotted the 318is out. It was a spiffy little pocket rocket, and sat about a half inch lower than it's big brother...
