Mein Auto: 2012 BMW 328i
Picked up my 328i

Y'all:

Went to the dealer this morning to pick up my new 328i. Imperial Blue, Modern Line, Oyster / Textured wood interior, Premium Pkg, Premium Sound Pkg, Xenon. The weather is crappy right now, so I took only one photo with my iPhone (more pics once the weather improves).

Initial impressions:
  • Handling is very light and very precise.
  • Sounds like a Bimmer.
  • Oyster interior is beautiful, but the oyster floormats are going to need replacing with something that doesn't show dirt so much.
  • The car DOES NOT have the front license plate bracket as seen on the first dealer cars!!!! Instead, there is the nearly invisible "vampire bite" on the front bumper.
  • Seats are firm and comfortable.
  • The car has more front leg room than my G35 or my long gone, but not forgotten, 2002 325i.
  • The auto on/off function never activated during my 30 minute ride from the dealer, to the toll tag store, and home, in light suburban traffic.

Cool! First pic I have seen of Imperial Blue with black trim. Thinking of getting IB in Sport with gray interior.
I do like the Modern's turbine wheels much better than those on the Luxury line.

Agree on the floormats. My floormat strategy has been to replace the light mats with black mats (Ultimate Floormats from Bavarian Auto).
