First BMW-- Joining the F30 Family
So after almost two months of considering options, researching deals, and mutliple test drives, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered my first BMW.
2013 BMW 328i X-drive Sedan
Black Sapphire Metallic
Leather Dakota Black / Red Highlight
Brushed Aluminum Trim, with Black high-gloss trim finishers
Sport transmission with paddle shifters
Heated Front Seats
Harmon/Kardon surround stereo
Totally psyched! This will be my first BMW-- the stereotypical dream BMW for me has always been black-- hence I selected Black Sapphire with Black leather; totally love the looks of the Sport Line. Love the contrast stitching and fog lights and overall aggressive yet classy look. The car is a load of fun to drive fast and hard and yet will also serve as a great daily driver in all conditions. Love how planted it is on the roads and seemed to excel in all conditions.
Thanks to everyone here for all the great recommendations... and most of all for the many leasing tips. Props to everyone for jotting down their $0.02 on all of their individual deals, as I was able to accumulate the data and reach a great price point, which was a win-win for both me and dealer.
Also, thanks to the team at Kelly BMW in Columbus, OH as well. Highly recommended!!! First class customer experience overall thus far. Treated with respect, and no pressure. The way it should be.
Now the wait begins!
It'll certainly be a Happy New Year when this vehicle arrives...
Looking forward to being part of the family.. thanks again, gang!
