I like the silver interior on the doors, but the big silver seat didn't do it for me. Black interior would have been fine (and is the safe bet), but my current interior is black leather and I wanted a change.

I hope I look like , not , when the car shows up.

Comp package. The deal breaker was the 2011's come with M-Drive/MDM standard. Wasn't really interested in EDC or the 19" wheels.

Fair enough. I'm going to assume by your above sentiments that you didn't order iDrive, power seats, etc as they all add weight to the overall package.

Do you also think E90 owners aren't true speed enthusiasts? After all M division didn't even see fit to give them a CF Roof option! Oh the humanity. Just curious

Hello...

Hardest decision for most was probably the tranny...mine was to waste my money on navigation when I can just buy a tomtom.

I got it without navi and then bought a tomtom lol

like i said before color and tranny. if i was picking a new one now i dont know if i could decide now any better than last time. i like the involvment of the 6mt and the speed of the dct. which is better? who knows. i like almost every color. MR, SG, AW, JB, LMB, its so hard.
