I have/am getting/want a: Modern, Luxury, Sport, M Sport

Let's get an idea of what "Lines" Bimmerfesters have/are getting/want.


Does anyone have data on how sales are breaking down?



Oh, crap, I forgot no-line. Oh, well, just post if that's the one for you. Sorry about that.

If a mod wants to edit this post to include the no-line or delete it and I'll re-do it, feel free.

So did you buy it? I accompanied someone to that dealership once and the one salesmen we dealt with was kind of obnoxious. But one salesman does not a dealership make. It also seems like they almost never stock manuals.

It seems like no-line is the most common configuration on dealer lots. But there are a few things I don't like about it:

- The 17-inch wheels look kind of so-so.
- If bmwusa.com is correct, the steering wheel looks plainer and without thumb rests. It even looks skinnier, but I an not sure whether that is indeed the case. So is the steering wheel a little different on the no-line?
- The matte rubbery window trim.
- Silver plastic trim, which can be fixed by upgrading to wood.

But it understandable why some folks don't find the lines to be a good value.

Sport line is worth $2500 for sure, I wish I had gotten it. Not a fan of Luxury in fact I cancelled the Lux I had ordered and went with no-line because I dislike some of the chrome trims.

I absolutely LOVE my no line ride...been nearly 6 months and still love driving and admiring it!

I like the looks of my 17"ers!
The steering wheel is skinny indeed...no regrets but I'd love to swap it out.
Window trim is no big deal
Interior plain trim is no big deal

In hindsight,
If I did it again, at the same point in time, I'd go for Sport line with APPS, Everest Grey interior, and all my other options
If I did it after Msport was available, that would be a difficult choice between that and Sport line...due to Everest Grey interior

I'm getting none of the above, nor any other BMW that adopts this "line" BS to simplify manufacturing.

You know the right way to cut costs, BMW? Guess, what. It's not to say "screw you" to your customers. It's to say "screw you" to your dealerships. Close every single one and add a "buy now" button to your website's configurator. Done.

For me, I had to have the Saddle interior so Luxury line it was.

I voted "want an M Sport line" because that's the only line I would choose from the ones presented if I were buying an F3x. Since I'm going to be buying an F82 in 2015 or 2016, change that to "am getting an M".
