Nice colour combination. The first colour I saw 'in the metal' was the Monaco blue and it convinced me to go to a showroom and take a test drive.
Personally I have no issue with the sports suspension and actually specced it on my 330i. I found the standard suspension too soft and wanted the sharper handling. But I was used to an RX8 and have driven a number of sports cars and sports coupes over the years with a firm ride, so it's not really an issue. In fact I find the BMW much more forgiving than previous cars, even with the sports suspension!
