Was going to buy 2013 335i but...

It has a ghetto-ass radio. No display screen, just a early 2000's dial and small one line of text display. I'm a little off put by this, but it I still am very interested in this car..
Anyone else think the lack of display screen is a problem?

He's probably looking at an E92, not an F30. Doesn't your radio display just ruin your ///M3? Probably makes you feel like you wasted your money, huh?

Yes, we got the 2013 part, but a 2013 sedan or coupe?

It's a massive problem. You definitely, positively should not consider a BMW.

I believe a Lexus would be a optimal chose for you. Lot's of pretty lights inside that car.

Careful there. Don't make any snap judgements. Are you looking at a coupe, 'vert or sedan?

And that's why it doesn't have the iDrive standard. The 2013 Coupe is still the e92 so you don't have the option to choose 'lines' yet.


So again...


Wrong forum.

See, I told you, no snap judgements. The coupe is still the previous generation body style and platform, the E92. And you are in the wrong forum.

Audi's have decent gadgets inside. Ride's kind of boring but you'll be happy with the audio system. (Get the B&O upgrade)

You posted in the F30 forum, not the E30 forum.

I think we may have run off the OP. He hasn't posted in the E9x forum.

This may be a new record.

Only 8 posts before the (apparently obligatory) "Buy a Lexus" post reared its ugly head.
