Why does the 2013 order sheet not reflect this?...

Why does the 2013 order sheet not reflect this? It clearly states that to have sat installed as an accessory (with no package) requires nav. My dealership is researching this but hasn't unearthed...

In the end I think it comes down to whether you prefer the feel of a diesel. When comparing an automatic E90 335i to the 335d, I much preferred the latter (I drove them back to back on SE PA country...

But with the particulate trapping emissions equipment on modern diesels, they can be less reliable and more expensive to maintain if they are used primarily for driving over small distances.

The last car I drove with DCT was a VW GTi. I have driven the F30 328i with auto. It is much improved over the old GM 6 speed in the E90, which I always thought did not work well in in the E90s I...

A DCT is one thing but an auto with torque converter is another. The latter seems to be taking over as BMWs U.S. market bread and butter and the company seems to be pushing it. It's pretty hard to...

Thanks -- glad they've seen sense on the HIDs. Not so keen that they have taken auto-dimming mirrors off the premium package and made them standard -- not a fan of those at all.

Just looked at the 2013 order sheet -- it appears to my untrained eyes that the premium package is no longer a prerequisite for HIDs (Xenons, in $900 lighting package ZLD) on the 328i. Can anyone...
