So .. if you LIKE the extended GO with the extended. BB is one color where the extended leather is noticeable AND looks good and I would love to have it .. though as some mentioned .. it is overpriced. I would also like to get every option that the regular 3-series cars do NOT have to differentiate it even more .. that's the snob in me ... no offense intended.

18 vs. 19 .. looks-wise no doubt .. the 19" is the better looking wheel (and a great value for a forged wheel). That being said on the E90/SEDAN .. the choice gets a bit interesting. The E90 has a more masculine profile than the svelte lines of E92/E93 (note .. I am NOT saying if you drive a couple/convert .. you're feminine ). Those masculine lines seem to really compliment the dark rims with those huge & thick tires giving it a real track beast look .. so my vote goes for the 18".

In addition 18" wheels do drive a bit softer, has a better feel and according to some handle a bit better (all purely subjective if you ask me).
Good take. Totally agree.
