Mein Auto: 328i Touring M Sport F31
F31 Touring M Sport Package with Individual Leather Sport Seat upgrade

Does anyone know whether F31 is made in Germany or else? I am looking to buy the upcoming 328i Touring with M package with many options.

Any advise on the Dakota vs Individual seat would be great in terms of quality.

Thanks

The F31 is made in Germany. Most Bimmerfesters are Yanks and we don't get Individual options on the 3er.

Thanks. I am deciding on the Estoril Blue that can choose cashmere beige or black individual leather. The AU 328i F31 comes with Reversing Camera, Park Control, folding mirror with anti-dazzling, Sat Nav Business and more as standard with 19" 403M wheel in the M package. but obviously here down under is more expensive with similar spec than US version. Thanks for the extra luxury car tax on top of 10% GST.

Did not realize that you are in Australia.

As of now, Individual leather is only available in Merino and not in Dakota. Merino is way softer than Dakota.

In my personal experience, Merino keeps their quality look better than Dakota as well.

thanks Technic, yes Australia can choose 3 individual leather trim to go with Estoril Blue, comfort is on my top list as I drive over 20000 km per year including 500km one way to the country Australia for work.
