Get the premium sound. It is great. Sure you could probably pay less for better aftermarket stuff on your own, but I figured another 2k on top of what I was paying wasn't a big deal.

If you plan on getting some crazy loud exhaust that will drown out all sound, then maybe it's not for you.

We can compare my EQ'd Prem sound with someone else that didn't get it optioned during the Skyline Drive. You should be able to make a decision then.

I have extended but meh, probably could save the $1k here and get premium sound. Takes more work to clean your interior as a result of extended :P

Not sure what the Fox/Black/Black option is for $300 is. Assuming two-tone vs. straight red?

Yeah it's the same red/black two-tone from the special edition. Looks sexy. Placing the order today!

How much more is individual paint? Im going back and forth about premium audio as well.

Congrats...darkstar zero. When is the pickup? Two things I'd suggest.
1. Go for the regular leather...I've not known many who did extended leather and noticed much of a difference in the car especially those who chose dark colors like black. Save your $1k or so for that larger LED TV my man.
2. Have your guy hook you up with and European Delivery AND a Performance Delivery ASAP! You CAN do both so don't let them tell you no. Car will be delivered at the Welt in Germany and you'll have yourself a ball (I can provide directions to the "Ring" but unlikely you'll be broken in enough for that car wise!). Drop it off at the shipping point and then they'll deliver it to the Performance Center in SC and you'll get a day of instruction and track time there and a factory tour on BMW's dime and get to drive your car back to VA as well. BEST bang for you buck and neither will cost you anything extra! PM for details if needed!

Get the two tone red/black/black. It is the only thing I wish I could get on my 09. The red was too much for me and the two tone is perfect. There are some pics of it up of a guy that took delivery. Looks damm nice. As for extended black, it doesn't make sense. If you have an all black interior, you can't tell that you have extended, which makes no sense.

The way you said it makes no sense reminded me of the Chewbacca defense.


btw I have black extended but I would rather go two tone than extended if I had the option.

Thanks everyone! I did place the order already and got a great deal. I'm picking the car up in Europe on June 7th. I went with the two-tone leather and sprang for the premium sound, which btw, is an extra $24 per month on a 15k/36 month lease.

I'm going to contact my sales dude today and get the PCD as well.

Cograts on the car order. I'll be out of the area for the next Skyline Run, but thanks for getting those together.

Haha, yeah, a bit late. Also, good luck with your M coupe search. Mine sold for asking price after only 5 days.
