+1. the reflectors and the seats are the two biggest WTFs with US cars. the fugly reflectors are like an after-thought from the germans. they could come up with semi-decent ones for the 335i but not for a 60k M car. lord jesus. and the seats! what logic is behind their decision to ship those seats in the US? no...really..
