Same is true on the F30. We'll also likely get stuck with the sunroof on the M235i and if you want zenon or LED (if available) lights on the 228i, you'll likely have to package it with the sunroof there too.

tl;dr - BMW USA likes sticking us with stupid stuff that we don't really want.

Not a fan of cloth but a little alternate color stitching or some highlights would be cool. Although black leather is clean and fine as well lol. Guess with the blue highlights that might be enough.

Not 100% sure about layout, but I've driven both the F20 and F30. Interior quality are pretty much the same

If you search for GOLFFFR on the forum, all David's contact info is there.

He is a good dude and BMW enthusiast. He has a Fire Orange M3.

Hopefully BMW realizes the potential of making big $$$ on a really fat performance parts catalogue for this car. Wheels, exhaust, springs, CF parts etc.

Yeah, I'd really like to see that interior in the US.

Me too - it seems so much more sporty, which is the idea of the 1/2er if you ask me - save the perceived luxury of leather for the fatter, I mean, larger models.

In the meantime lets take bets.... Well optioned M235i in the neighborhood of $52k would be my bet.... I wouldn't have guessed so high but I was just looking online and didnt realize how easy it is to option a current 135i up to $50k.

if it's 52k it was probably not "optioned well"
