So M-Drive is standard? The dreaded double-hump dash cannot be avoided?

I think you are misreading. I am looking at page 12 and it shows a black square next to "M-Drive with M Dynamic Mode", which indicates that it is included with the technology package.

I hope that is the case, but look how they have EDC with the 'O' and then the notation for its inclusion in the ZTP. It seems like they would represent it the same if that were the case. Rough week...

Edit - Maybe this means that MDrive is only available with the ZTP, and not as a stand alone option, probably for reasons of the hump.

An O means it is available as a stand alone. M Drive is only available as part of a package, hence the difference in symbols.

Thanks for the Link!

Seems like the 18" wheels surprisingly will have another finish than in Europe:
"M-style alloy wheels (Style 260M) with Satin Chrome finish, 18 x 8.5 front,
18 x 9.5 rear; 245/40 front and 265/40 rear performance tires"


Hence the different code. E will like that...


Best regards, south

At least I can't see the orange reflectors or the roof fin while I'm driving it.

Would you skip the ZTP to lose the extra hump? I will, no question.

Good catch. I had ruled them out and probably will still get 19s but I need to see what they look like first. I assume this is the same or similar finish that was on the concept wheels, right?

Some interesting notes: The coupe weighs in at 3700lbs!!! Does anyone know if this includes gas and a driver, seems kind of heavy to me. It also appears as though the individual audio system is not offered, just an upgraded sound system. Epacy will be happy with that.

Its seems that the Enhanced Audio is after all the Individual Audio...

I think that having base cloth and leather seats and including the Confort Access only in the Tecnology Package and not separate at least are "nickel and dime" decisions that are out of place in a vehicle of at least $55,000... but that's just me.

But then, Sport seats are optional in a Porsche 911 of $74,000, so I should not complain too much...

Why is palladium silver now called just silver? And I am not sure if it's just me looking at the screen, but what happened to the slightly blue tone that was in the silver?

+1 Who cares about stereo and whether or not the gray has blue in it. This is a huge amount over the euro spec of 3649; 55 lb more. Hopefully just a the difference among standards US unladen vs. EU unladed. We all know what the EU spec entails, anyone know the spec difference.

Maybe we can compare 335i US vs. EU?

I sure hope they did not have to cram another 50+ lbs on the car to get it to meet US requirements...

"unladen" to me means no driver, but at 3700 lbs, probably includes all fluids.

That's pretty fat.

What exactly is Sating Chrome Finish. What was the finish in Europe?
And why would you offer two finishes? Perhaps they heard my cries?
S?

The individual audio does seem to be offered. What are you talking about ChitownM3?

And I guess it is true. Power rear windows in the coupe.

The sedan is listed as 3726 lbs. I could of sworn the difference in weight between the coupe and sedan was much bigger than 22 lbs. Perhaps the CF roof isn't taken into account for the coupe in those weigh-ins.
