When I was in the dealer ordering my M they told me the only way to get the full leather seats was to order the Premium package... is this correct?

When I configure it on the BMW site I can pick any seats without the Premium package...

Any of you "in the know" guys validate this?

No, no, no. They've got it wrong.

There was an issue back in July or August of last year, because BMWNA sent their dealers a spec sheet that had a couple of errors/typos. I can't believe they're still not aware of this.

Rest assured you can get leather as a separate item. I got the Power Seat Package, then chose the Moonroof and Gray Nappa Leather as individual options.

Yes--that's exactly what I did.

You can save about $350 by selecting the PSP rather than the PP, though you lose the rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlights.

Not that I would split hairs over $350, but I seriously have no use for those 2 features.

Be aware also that the PSP includes the adj seatbacks/lumbar support.

I'm right there with you. I can turn on my lights and wipers myself.

Do you like the grey interior? I'm afraid it will show dirt in the long run, that's why I'm going with black...Thoughts, experience?
Lots of people have made negative comments in the past about the Grey, but I really love it. I've never liked black interiors, plus I'm in Texas, so it was a no-brainer for me. The grey actually complements the Topaz perfectly, IMO. It has just a hint of a bluish tint to it, so that makes it even more ideal for me.

Here's a pic:


You could even consider Cinnamon. It's not for everyone, but I considered it, along with Grey. In the end I chickened out because nobody else had ordered the combo, but now that I've seen it it kind of works:

Why would we want to make a BMW look like a prancing pony?
It's not neccessarily just to imitate a Ferrari, I honestly think it would look nice.

My fav M3 combo's may shock the more "reserved" members of this board:
  • Imola/Imola
  • Carbon/Imola
  • Alpine/Imola or LSB or Cinnamon
  • Phoenix/Kiwi

And I'm still on the fence about:
  • Topaz/Kiwi

Call me crazy, but if I were ordering an M3 for myself I'd choose one of those. Seriously. No that is not cocaine on my upper lip.

Oh yeah, I forgot you are a bright red owner. At least you have some daring nerves in you. The majority of the people here will never leave their black/silver/darkblue cars. If I ordered my car new it would have been Bright Red without a doubt. Hell, I have yet to see a red E46 around my area let alone a red sedan.

The IM/IM, Carbon/IM, and Alpine/IM are hot! I'm not a fan of Phoenix no matter what interior is in it, same goes for Kiwi. As I was ordering my car this weekend the salesman told me he just had a guy order Phoenix/Kiwi ...

Wild guess: you like Imola Red? :p

I have only seen 2 Phoenix M3's on the road, and as much as my friends told me they were feeling sick to the stomach after the sight, I love the colour.

Speaking of yellow, a house in my neighbourhood had a Dakar Z3 3.0 in the driveway yesterday. BMW Individual? Looked incredible.
