Here goes:

2013 BMW 328i xDrive
Estoril Blue Metallic Paint
M Sport Line
18" M Alloy Wheels 400M w/ Mixed Tires

Coral Red Dakota Leather
Cold Weather Package
Dynamic Handling Package
Lighting Package
Premium Package
Technology Package
Sport Auto Transmission w/Paddles

This is a military overseas sale, so that's why th price is so low (relatively speaking). I'm also planning on getting the BMW 17" cold-weather wheel/tire package for the winter. Any comments/recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, and sorry about the wall of (con)text.

No shortwave? Dude. Keep in touch with the folks in Bahrain.
