Mein Auto: 2012 328i
New 2012 328i Mineral Gray Metallic

Picked up this week. Driving comments forthcoming. Meanwhile, here's some visuals.

Had a long night time drive last night and can attest the auto high beams are worth the price.
Honestly thought they were "lite candy", but now feel option is worth the price as it is included with Xenon

Thanks for the pictures. I'm picking up that same car (Mineral Gray/Veneto Beige Luxury Line) in Munich on the 18th. Looking forward to your driving comments.

Here's my take on driving the F30. First the comfort and visual level of the interior is a signficant upgrade from the E92 E93 I have owned. While it doesn't have the kick of my 335i I think BMW has hit a bullseye with the 328. Have only driven around 150 miles but it is extremely responsive in sports mode and handles just as you would expect. Fun and spirited.
In eco pro mode the car feels lazy, but that should be expected as the mpg I have experienced is around 33. It has already been mistaken as a 5 series by several BMW owners - was at a gas station and someone driving a 540 asked me if it was a 5.
Cruises nicely at 85mph, cabin is quiet (though a little noiser than I expected).
All in all it delivers more than I anticipated, much more.

Took the car off the lot so some features I would have not ordered and so far feel are a waste of money, specifically BMW apps - don't see the need at all.

I have the same color - just waxed with Pinnacle Sourveran. That helps to build depth to the color. Any other suggestions for a decent wax with a dark grey?
