I found the standard suspension in the 330i/330d to be a perfect compromise between ride comfort and driver appeal.
I know what you mean about the sports suspension - it's taking me some time to get used to it, and I am wondering if I should have gone for a 330d without it.

Finally settled on Monaco Blue with Jade Grey leather- I think this will look classy, but haven't seen this combo in the flesh nor even in photos yet.
I also know what you mean about the colour choice. I bet Monaco/Jade's going to look gorgeous. When I collected my car there was a Sparkling Graphite E92 with the Jade Grey leather, and that looked very nice indeed - made my SG with Black look a bit plain. Please post some pics when you get it.
