I am definately going to get Black saphire with saddle brown interior , with light wood trim trim. Options would be m-sports, logic 7's and sunroof. The 335 is already loaded with features but the ones i listed are must haves.

YOU must make your father buy the aero lip, its so HOT . Sportiness is always a priority, you can quote me on that to your dad

2 cars in one, bahh, i just don't like hard tops!! they haven't (TO ME) got the convertible cool factor... half the fun of a vert is always seeing that it is a vert... i'm sure most people love the idea of it, and alot of other things about it, but i think i will reserve the majority of my judgement untill the prievew drive weekend...

The vert's are always softer, heavier, slower and have scuttle shake though by design as they are based off coupes.

I thought my point was pretty obvious, some people don't see value in paying more money for a heavier, slower and less ridgid car. I don't see the point in an E46 M vert over a 330ci vert. Everyone has their own needs

Whats important is that the owner of the car is happy. ASTRA, i know is very happy with her vert so that is whats important. I mean BMW make verts for a reason even if they are a bit slower then coupe's. There is a market for them so i don't know why there is irrelevant comments made for the vert.

Obviously they do. This is the off topic thread though right? And as I see it I don't have to agree with everyone else's choices they make with cars and they don't have to agree with mine. I stated the draw backs of verts and thought it was quite clear from my post that everyone has their own needs or wants, sorry if it was hard to follow.

yeah very hard to follow Anyway i hope you don't get too carried away with this off topic thread. I mean i personally have a lot of negative facts i can post about other peoples choices in cars but i choose not to like majority of the members in this forum. But hey i don't expect everyone to show respect to other people's choices in cars and there specifications.

well, the name was derived from holden, but i am not a holden fan... it came from a persona joke about someone's car, and then i just ended up with the nick name... when i joined this forum, i didn't have a BMW, so i just used my nick name
