car B or keep looking i guess.

you want tthe lighting package. dynamic handling might be cool if you want to soften the suspension sometimes but honestly the stock one isnt too bad (i live in socal with some of the worst roads ever) unless you are used to like camry level soft and want that. i dont think it'd be worth giving up the lighting package though.

blindspot detection, and the parallel parking assistance and surround view are cool, but not really all that useful if you know how to drive a car. my mom has an X5 with the surround view and its a "neato" feature, but i'd say not that useful even in a giant suv, i guess you can see if you are about to run over a curb or something. PDC alone is probably the best part and car B has that.


i've got a m-sport 328i also, and have you found it completely weird that most of the ones on dealer lots dont have lighting? when i was looking (and i got mine off a lot amazingly with just what i wanted) i'd say maybe 20% of them had lighting. it was exasperating.

Go out and find the car you want. Many many cars out there but maybe not in your city but probably close by.

Never buy a car with any missing option you think you want. You always stare at the space where the button would have been and regret it.

This is my dream car, as configured. This car had my name on it.

you lose all that stuff. i think you actually lose the little lights that light up on the door handles when you unlock the car with the fob.

my parents just bought a x3 without lighting , no lights for puddles on the doors. they have an x5 also with lighting, lights for puddles. my f30 with lighting, lights for puddles on door handles.

congrats man. saw your config. my car is i guess a subset of yours... it doesnt have tech and hk and heated seats but all the rest. love it though. its exactly how i wanted it. you'll get up in the morning and think, YES i get to drive to work. and you'll sit there staring at your estoril blue paint thinking, i dont care if that CHP officer might notice this car speeding a bit more , it was worth it.

Thanks hans... Was fortunate to find the config but really scouted the market. The days between now and delivery will be the longest of my life. FWIW Bev Hills BMW has similarly equipped EBII M Sport I would've sniped if this wasn't available.

I think the fuzz will give me a pass because my ride look like a squad car, all she needs is a white stripe.

BTW did y'all see these...
