Neon...what do you think about those standard seats? I think they're better than the ones in my E46. Do you think they are supportive and comfortable enough that sport seats are unneccessary?

Neon, for me, everything really nice, except for the weels, and weels are so important in a car.

neon i had the same concern before i buy my car with normal seat ,i didnt oreder the car but i find it as i want exactly except its without front pdc and with normal seat ,i can assure you that the normal seat not just a comfort seat its sporty as well what i find when i compare between the two from the dealer is the sport seat tighter and comes with special adjustment , i admit if i am ordring the car i will take the sport but both are nice and i find the diffrence dosent worth to keep me out of the car since it feel sport as well.

I think the seats are pretty good. Only thing I don't really like about it at the moment is the lower back support. I have the lumbar support but I guess I'm still getting used to it. I'm still happy with it though and will probably get more used to it as I drive it more. If you haven't ordered your car yet, I'd say go to the dealer and sit in both.

Well what kind of wheels do you think I should get? Keep in mind I just graduated college in May and don't really have a job and just bought a 50k car so money is tight.

If money is an issue, then BBS CH is a very good choice, cost about half as much as the forged RS-GT but still lighter than stock wheels (likely, but not 100% sure). CH is one of the best looking wheels for E90/92 along with Volk ME which is also quite good value compared to RS-GT.

NEON, I think 17' wheels are ok, but I would have choose another style, any other.

The BBS CH is $440 each. A set of 4 is over $1,600. That's pretty expensive for rims. And I prefer the OEM look (BMW roundel in the center of the rims).

I would have gotten the rims that came with the sport package but that was a whole 'nother issue that I started a thread on.

In Italy BMW allow you to choose from 3 different styles of 17' wheels. This has nothing to do with sport package or whatever. BMW has for every country a specific politic... Anyway, enjoy your car! As soon as I receive mine I'll post some pictures. Ciao.

My 335i coupe arrived this weekend finally. They did their pre-inspection stuff and then on Monday I had them put on Huper Optik tint as well as I had them install the iPod adapter.

Monaco Blue, Dakota Black Leather Interior, Gray Poplar Trim, 6 speed, Sport Package, Premium Package, Comfort Access, Navigation.

Here's pics! I'm extremely happy with the gray poplar. The pictures don't do it justice, as there is NO brown at all in the trim, but the flash on my digital camera makes the light reflect funny.

Anyway, here's pics!

TracerHawk, finally a Monaco Blue with BLACK! I've also ordered this combo, and I was a bit suprise to didn't see any blue with black. I love this combo. My car will have only 2 differences with your: I have Aluminium trim instead of Grey Poplar, I think Alu with Black is a very nice contrast; and the second difference are wheels, I took the 19'. Can't wait to post some pictures.
Ciao TracerHawk, and congratulations for your car.

TracerHawk you should also post some picture where we could better see the combo BLue with Black, picture taken from outside the car, with the front door open. Would be very nice if you could do that. Thanks.

Thanks BMW Milano! I went back on forth probably 5 times on Aluminum Trim vs. Gray Poplar Trim. Both are great. Originally I ordered with aluminum trim, but then I switched. I think you can't go wrong with either, but I'm extremely happy with the gray poplar. I'll see if I can get some better pictures of it. Grats on the 19" wheels, too! I'll probably sell, my wheels and tires ASAP. I think I may stick with 18's though, as I heard that 19's make your car feel slower? I can tell you though, the sport wheels that come on the 19's are incredible!

I'm personally looking at getting BBS RS-GT's in diamond black and slapping some PS2's on them. However, they are pretty pricey, so we'll have to see.
