After five years of frustration, the company I work for has seen the light and put BMW's on the car list.

I was the butt of 'old man' jokes in a Rover 75 for 3 years and then an Audi A4 for the last two but finally, the time has come - I can order a 3 series !!

I've got a P11D value of 26K and I'm ordering tomorrow - my current thoughts are as follows.....

318i M Sport. Sapphire Black. Black Leather. Style 193 18" Alloys. Sun Protection Glass. No model inscription. Sliding Front Armrest.

I was going to have the folding door mirrors but I'm being told that the spec has changed slightly and that they are now included - hence the armrest!

Does anyone have any other suggestions? I love the M Sport look and the interior. The A4 I've had for a couple of years is a Sport model so I'm used to a relatively hard ride and don't mind it.

I do around 750 miles per week.

All opinions welcome !
Welcome to the forum, Boo34.

If I were going to buy my car again & choose the options, I'd just make damn sure I didn't leave off the xenons (which I didn't, anyway!).

They really are worth the money & I will certainly not buy another car again without them.

Get yourself down to UK2 at Donington Park on Sept 23rd & see the options from a user's point of view- don't take for granted anything the dealer tells you about options & which ones you should or shouldn't have.
