THE LOOK

Which look are you going for:

I went for 50/50.

Outside: sgm and sport wheels

Inside: walnut burl and terra

Interior: steptronic and sports package

That's about as 50/50 as you can get.

Shouldn't you make a poll? And since you have All Sport (100%), you should have All Luxury (100%) as well.

I'm pretty much 50/50 btw. Both are important.

You get 25% sport for buying the car.

You can't be 100% luxury.

General formula:

Add +1 to Sport:
- Manual
- Sport Pckg
- Alum Trim

Add +1 to Luxury
- Auto
- Wood Trim
- Prem Package
- CA
- Idrive/Navi

Take the ratio:

In my case, it would be 3:3, therefore 50/50.

Im 50/50.

I dont think anyone here can be 100% lux or 100% spt.
Buying a bmw, already gives you both lux and spt. you can't hide it.

Being a cyclist I thought you were referring to Lance Armstrong giving Jan Ullrich "The Look".

We should have added +1 for xi (lurury)and +1 for i (sport)

Heated seats should get some consideration towards luxury.

After market sports items also deserve some consideration.

Just a recommendation but I think you should change your title to make it more descriptive. This is a pretty cool thread but I think many might ignore it just because the title doesn't say a whole lot.

I tend to see BMW as the epitome of Sport-Luxury. The order of that phrase isn't arbitrary, I think Sport comes first with BMW. Of course BMW is a luxury brand, but there are numerous luxury brands. But what sets BMW apart from Lexus, MB, Infiniti, etc. is its superior performance and handling.

With Lexus, I think comfort. With MB, I think prestige. With BMW I think Performance. And that's how I like it!

Very well said.

That's why I gave sport 25% to start.

Until we get the M3, there is no 100% sport. The 335 w/M-pack counts as 75% in my book.

330xi/Sparkling Graphite/Terra Leather/Walnut Burl/Steptronic /Sports Package/Heated Seats/Comfort Access
.....coming the end of March!

Did comfort control, heated seats and xi pushed me over to 75/25 lux/spt?

All I really got was the sports package and terra seats, but I did get the 330.
