Hmm, this explains why the first allocations are showing up with them. The F30 started production in November, so those within 2.5 months production will have them.

Interior Color Combinations?

Tim, great chart. Thanks! Do you also have a definitive interior color chart. I'm particularly interested in Everest Gray Dakota Leather with red seat stitching with matching red dash accent line.

This is the complete F30 2012 3 series catalog -

http://www.bimmerfest.com/pdf/bmw-pr...-catalogue.pdf

I see the Everest Gray leather but I don't see an option for red stitching with that. Tried the BMWUSA.com configurator and didn't see it either. Is that something you saw somewhere or just the option you want?

The F30 has slits under the lip on the bumper. I don't remember the car having holes in the bumper for the tag. Are we talking about the two hook cover?

Question ED 328d Sedan 2014?



I am new to posting on this forum but would appreciate some help with making a decision regarding European Delivery of a 328d sedan. Where can I find the prices for August 2014 delivery and pick-up? Which colors are available with which interiors? I have seen a 5/20/13 release for the 3 Series and do not like the options of pairing up the outer and inside colors. Is anyone else planning to get ED for a diesel?
Thanks for any input you can give me, incl. if you have an older model diesel and what your experiences are with this car? I would like a diesel for both the mpg and motor longevity.
Also, I am not comfortable with the two dealers I have in the K.C. area. Do I have other options?

Check out the ED forum. You'll get a lot of help there.
