The E92 looks slightly different (possible facelift?) in that track photo. I know that it has the M-Tech kit and what not but the overall lines of the car look slightly different. Are my eyes deceiving me?

No, it does look slightly different. There is another character line above the one that is already there, looks dark in the picture. I'm pretty sure it is a thick pinstripe or something to that effect b/c the 1 series also has it. Mabye something extra that is available with the performance package..

I wonder why they decided to use the 328 coupe instead the 335 to show off the performance accessories

Those suede seats look fantastic! The wheels are also great looking.

Is it just me or is it that it's getting too much, this Internet access in cars? Can somebody shed some light for me on this? What kind of job would profit for having Internet access in your car? Maybe if you are stuck in traffic.

The picture of the X6 in post #5 is fantastic and yet from the back it looks awful IMO. The X6 is not growing on me.

Thanks for setting me straight- I definitely did not see the HUGE airbag lettering on the side of the seat! I don't know how I missed it. Anyway, great news!

In the performance accessories brochure it says that the seats aren't for the US. Obviously only time will tell, but available information indicates that in fact they will not be sold in their largest market.

I could see the seats being $3k. Not terribly higher than a comparable seat from Recaro etc. It would be tempting... I wonder how much they weigh...

Seats are awesome! Look a lot like Recaro's Pole Position seats... and since they are Recaro's,,, probably almost the same seat just redesigned a little. Pole Positions go for about $2100,,, I would guess the dealer would rob us blind and set the price around $3k installed.....

p.s. love the carbon fiber trim!!!

From what Ive read they are not much lighter then stock seats (3kg per seat weight savings). I think they will cost quite a bit because they have airbags and heating option which your regular RECAROs do not.
