I went with Huper Optik Ceramic, 30% all around (except for windshield) and I couldn't be happier. I was around the $400 mark, but it's worth the money in Arizona.

I've had my MY13 335i for 4 months now and have not had a single problem with any facet of the car. If this problem is supposed to be systemic, should't it be a little more widespread?

Vern,
I noticed in your last post that you said one phone works fine and the other one doesn't. Do you have both phones paired simultaneously?

I've only got 1200 miles on my F30 so I can't comment on long term reliability yet. I had my e90 for 6 years and didn't even suffer a burnt out light bulb. That kind of reliability is one of the...

It should only require the enhanced bluetooth option to work. I got the tech package so BMW Assist and enhanced bluetooth were included in the package.

Agreed! The throttle response is night and day and the way the transmission holds a gear higher into the rev range is nice (never get tired of that sound either!).

The white Sport setting for ambient lighting isn't that noticeable with my black interior, but the classic amber can actually be brighter than my E90. It fills the cabin with a nice warm glow. The...

Nice tip. I didn't think of that so found myself waiting until the next audio cue to grab for the volume control.

The ambient light selection works great. It is kind of subtle so you can't really see it unless it's dark. I have the brushed aluminum trim so the sport setting reflects alot more light than the...

That's where my sunglasses go too. I like the spring loaded latch instead of a cheesy plastic clip to hold it closed. It doesn't feel flimsy like it is going to come off in my hand.
