Interesting that the 123d gets the autobox, but what I really had hoped for was a 323d....

BMW specification enhancements
From March, all BMW 1 Series, 3 Series and X3 models receive floor mats and front seat ISOFIX child seat fixings as standard.

Purchasers of BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring models now also benefit from navigation and visibility value-added packages. Media Package Business offers customers Business navigation (complete with map and arrow view), Bluetooth mobile telephone connectivity and BMWs ConnectedDrive Assist and Online for a package price of 1,645 (2,115 on ES). This represents a significant saving of up to 635 compared to the individual option pricing.

Media Package Professional upgrades Business navigation with Professional navigation (complete with its widescreen format and perspective map view), and adds Voice Control, all for a package price of 1,935 (2,405 on ES), saving up to 745.

BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring customers can also specify the Visibility Package. Ideal for motoring in the dark winter months, the package contains Adaptive Xenon headlights, Headlight washers, Rain sensor with automatic headlight activation and BMWs innovative High-beam assistant. Priced from 605, this package saves the customer up to 270 compared to ordering the individual options.

Buyers of twin-turbo BMW 123d and 135i models can opt for an automatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddles for 1,505.

Finally, prospective owners of 1 Series cars now have a significantly wider colour choice. Jet Black, Crimson Red, Monaco Blue metallic, Bluewater metallic, and Sparkling Graphite metallic are being introduced on Convertible models at its launch. Bluewater metallic will also be available on 1 Series Coup, 3 and 5-door Hatch models, with Tahiti Green metallic also available on the Hatch.

^ because then they would be Acura...

I don't mind all of the packages and options, makes the buyer feel like they are getting what they want, not just another stamped out production car...

Trust me, if BMW's buyers wanted all the same cars with one or two options (navi), they and other "premium" brands would have started offering optionless cars a long time ago...

It also allows those buyers that can't afford $10k in options to drive a premium car for less. Some buyers just want to say they drive a BMW, and don't care about or can't afford all of the toys...

does anyone know if they will be getting rid of the hideous yellow corners on the headlights and replacing with reflectors above the front wheel wells in the bumper, a la e92?

^ I would guess no, but I could be wrong, they put them on the face-lifted e60's, so we might have a chance...

My guess is yes. They did this on the facelifted 5 series and I think it was because it is cheaper to have US specific bumper than a US specific headlight assembly. They might also use the lower-bumper mounted ones like on the new M3 (both E90 and E92) and on the facelifted M5.

US/Canadian headlights are different than euro's. I thought all euro's never had the yellow cornered headlights?

It already looks so much better with real kidney grilles and no "moustache". LED tails + no amber reflectors would be excellent improvements for the facelift.

Legal requirement, turn signals must be enclosed in yellow lens/casing. That's why on the e92 they put in yellow cased turn signals in the fender/wheel arch.
