Replacing my 1996 328i...

Finally submitted my purchase order on Monday, March 3rd for a ED delivery on Saturday, July 5th (confirmed, just waiting on time of day). Kudos to Philippe K at South Bay BMW for smooth handling, and excellent knowledge, of the process. Highly recommend him to anyone in SoCal looking to do ED.

2008 335i Coupe, Crimson Red, Black Dakota Leather, Brushed Aluminum Trim
Cold Weather Package
Premium Package
Sport Package w/upgrade to Style 230 19" Wheels
Steptronic w/paddle shifters
Comfort Access
Navigation
Power Rear Sunshade
HD Radio
Ipod and USB Adapter
Satellite Radio
Park Distance Control
SIRIUS Satellite Radio
Options to be added stateside (Areo kit and Illuminated Door Sills)

Thanks to all of you posters who give so much excellent information, making this actually a rather enjoyable process.

Garage List
my last car was a '97 e36 328i (non sport). there was a 4 yr period with no car (lived in nyc). my current is e90 335i m sport w/step.

imho, in ten years, they have:

* made the trunk bigger (rft)
* increased rear leg room
* better leather (dakota)
* better interior plastics
* better seats, but slightly worse center arm-rest/driving position
* 55% more hp
* hi-tech step transmission with DS/DTC/paddle shifter, but the simple ole one was perfect for that engine

I love the new car, but feel the old one was perfect in terms of balance--the new one is too powerful and always tempts me to speed and frustrates me in city traffic. I feel i could always push the old one closer to its limit, whereas with the new one, i am barely scratching the surface...i guess thats a good problem to have...
