I finally did it...
After weeks of surfing this site and then spending even more hours agonizing which options to get, I finally placed an ED order for a 330xi last week. It'll have PP/SP/CW and Xenons. Orient blue with natural brown interior. I hope this can at least put an end to my staying up till 2 or 3 am trying to read everything I can on the 3-series when I have to get up at 5:30 am! I'm also very lucky that my dealer got me a very fast delivery timeframe -- picking up on Mar 30, just a 7-week wait. My husband and I have very limiting travel schedules this spring/summer due to our work but the dealer was extremely willing to help us work around that. And now I guess I can stay up in the middle of the night to plan our trip which hopefully will take us to Budapest, Berlin and Prague and everywhere in between. Or maybe I'll try to figure out how to hook up my iPod when my car finally gets back here. Thanks to all of you for sharing your invaluable experience and I hope I can contribute just as much for others.
