Very nice! I really like the way the color matches your neighbor's front door. Very thoughtful of you!

Couldn't agree more.

Was going back and forth between these two colors, but coming from Topaz Blue I just couldn't change to Melbourne Red.

Awesome car, wish you well to use it.

Are your wife's wheels not the same as your M-Sport wheels? Those are not Sport line wheels right? Thanks.

PS. Puppy is really cute.

The Sport wheels and the M-Sport wheel are indeed slightly different.

Zeus (the puppy) is uber cute!

You are two thirds the way to being fully patriotic. All you need is an Alpine White F30 for the complete Red White and Blue look.

You guys in Ohio take such great care of your homes (and cars apparently). Beautiful pics!

Curious why you say the 335 and 328 are totally different cars. I've read differences before but am still debating between the two so enjoy reading more thoughts.

Gorgeous photos! I was actually looking to get my 328 in blue (the imperial blue, since I was going sport rather than M), but I don't have your patience, and dealers here only stock the sport line in sapphire black and red. Ended up falling in love with the sapphire black anyway, and don't think my driving style would be compatible with a red car (those other cars out there on the road with the lights on top don't need any extra reason to pay attention to me...)

Never had a chance to drive the M sport, but that blue is absolutely stunning!

Great pic. Why is panic button missing from the fob of red F30. It looks like a sports line with 397 sports wheels but tough to say whether it is 335 or 328.
Mine 335i sports line has red panic button on fob. Any reasons this one missing?

I was debating between 328 and 335. You need to test drive them both. The 335 is significantly faster. It delivers power much quicker than the 328. When I drove the 328 and pushed the car for more speed, there was a lag before the car gave me the power I wanted. The 335 is instant power and more of it. The m sport suspension vs std suspension also makes a big difference in handling and the type of tires - all season vs summer performance, also makes a big difference. That's what I like most on the 3 series...the widely varying options, which I found, at times, overwhelming. But it's good to have the choice.

Likely no factory-installed alarm. My 2013 sport line is the same, no panic button because no factory-installed alarm. I really could care less about the alarm or the panic button, but it drives me nuts that the car doesn't "beep" when I lock it (I'm a little OCD when it comes to locking my car), and apparently without a factory-installed alarm, there's no option for the lock function to have an audible beep.
