Maybe I should keep this, love it, pimp it out how I like it and just be happy and bill free for a while.

It's just a matter of how big of a smile you want on your face when you drive to and from work.

HUGE, but for me having $10k or so in my pocket is what gives me that right now. Don't get me wrong I have serious 335 envy, but I haven't stopped paying car payments in the last 5 years. I'm at like $2700 on my 325 and then I'll be done for a while. It'll be nice to just not have bills for once. When that smile fades, time for a new car, hopefully with cash.

Stay bill free my friend! I bought my car expecting to just upgrade to a 335 or an M3 in a few years. But now that I don't have a note on my 330, it makes life amazing. I just keep up with maintenance and I enjoy the living hell out if it!

Good plan for now. Maybe someday I'll have the cash saved up to trade mine in and pay for a 335 out of pocket, but no time soon. Very happy with my smooth sexy 325i :P

I'm dreading the impending F30 release - it'll mean I no longer have the current model and that's gonna mean new car itch.

Ah, crap - the F30 is actually pretty good looking. Not crazy about the way the trim is done on the dash, but the interior is pretty good otherwise. I have a feeling the front end will look great in M-sport.

Busy at work so really don't have time to digest all the pics right now, but F30 M-Sport looks awesome! Really loving the look of the exterior. Interior looks pretty good, some interesting bits though (steering wheel and console trim).

Can't wait to get home and read all the details...

F30 M-Sport looks great on the outside but is hideous on the inside. Aside from the luxury line, I really feel like the interior fit and finish on the F30 is a step backward from the E90. I'm not overly pleased, I had high hopes for the F30 Sport line.

We'll see what they end up bringing to the US market, but right now I'm wishing for luxury line interior with M-Sport exterior. That would be perfect. Not sure how I feel about this whole "line" idea.. hoping they won't do that for the US market.

So you think those specs could be Europe only? I'd be really happy about that, could be wishful thinking though...Luxury interior is gorgeous

That's what I'm thinking. I'm hoping they just bring over the luxury interior for US consumption. IMO, they almost have to just to stay competitive with the excellent Audi interiors (and even refreshed C-class interior).

I like the exterior of the car in both M-Sport and regular spec, so the interior will probably make that decision for me. That luxury interior is indeed gorgeous, do want.

I'm not particularly fond of the front on the new cars at all. I seem to be the only one liking the interior too lol. Oh well. I am actually relieved that I don't have new BMW envy that bad.

There was just a new thread added, seems as though the "Lines" are just pre-configured BMW's. You will be able to configure a BMW nearly any way you want and do not need to stay within the specific confines of each line - they're just a way to offer customers pre-packaged customization, if that even makes sense.

I'm not convinced that you will be able to not choose a line, especially in the USA. It seems like the modern line is the base version. I still like the sport line the best though, and I think the M-Sport really looks good. I better start saving today if I ever want to be able to afford a 335/340.
