    After lots of consideration, I have decided to go with the 2011 335i x-drive coupe for my next car. For options going with:

    Cold Weather Package$600
    M Sport Package$3,000
    Premium Package$2,650
    STEPTRONIC automatic transmission$1,375
    Navigation system$2,100
    Harman Kardon surround sound system$875

    I am also going to be utilizing the 'EuroDelivery method' which the salesperson completley talked me into, but also from researching the option it seems like a great experience and deal (you save quite a bit of $$$ even taking into account the travle costs, plus its buy one ticket get on free round trip).

    Price for the eurodelivery with the model I selected is $41k (plus options of course, which the sales guy said would be invoice cost), it also includes:
    European Delivery price includes:

    •14 days of free, road insurance
    •Tourist registration
    •Factory preparation
    •European inland transportation from the drop-off point to the nearest port
    •Marine insurance
    •Customs duty and clearance
    •U.S. port processing and accessory installation
    •Wharf and handling fees

    Besides all the that I am having trouble deciding on a color scheme, since I am doing the M package, all colors are open to me (I think) including the Lemans Blue.

    For exterior I am considering: Vermilion Red, Le Mans Blue, Space Gray, and maybe Black Sapphire.

    Interior: Saddle Brown (really leaning toward this); or Black or maybe Gray Dakota.

    Trim: I have no idea, actually considering Dark Glacier Aluminum instead of wood, as seen here with the saddle leather: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...brown+aluminum

    opinions?

    I also think white with saddle looks very nice, but I cant get over how feminine the white version looks (imo)

    i can't stand white cars unless it's a range rover. red is borderline girly and also catches the cops' eyes. i'd do blue or black if i were you. FWIW i don't like BMW wood trim and the aluminum looks dope.

    I like silver, black, or blue. I'm not a fan of white or red. You've selected a good set of options for the car.

    I actually think the space gray with the M-package and saddle/aluminum would look nice... its a darker grey metallic. I think this is it:

    Definitely brown interior. Black or Grey is just too stale boring. Brown feels more lush and warm.

    Red interior is even nicer, with the lighter standard aluminum trim I think would be hot. Dark Glacier Aluminum would be nice.

    ^ I recently saw the red interior with black ext. and didnt really like it, the red kinda felt to flashy, almost looked cheap to me...

    I agree though I think regardless of whatever color I go for outside (or trim) I am going to do the saddle brown.

    are you allowed to do Individual colors? Malachit Grun and Calypso Rot are the shit dreams are made of, doggie. Get saddle brown and wood of some sort, aluminum and the 'cube' trim looks cheap. Light wood is comtemporary for our time. It's not a car intended to be a classic down to every detail and it's not an M3 on a weight program, so enjoy a mix of motor/mild lux.

    I just sold my 335 on Wednesday, but it was black sapphire metallic with saddle brown leather and aluminum trim. I ordered these colors specifically and its still my favorite combo, although I dont know what options are available today as I ordered mine in '06. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I would go for the red exterior with the saddle brown and the aluminum trim.

    Am I the only one that thinks the blue with brown interior looks a little funky with the aluminum trim? I think it would look much cleaner with a wood trim that would actually compliment the leather instead of stick out like a sore thumb.

    Dont forget the split fold down rear seats. $450 option for some reason but really necessary.

    I thought that at first, but now I just think its a very clean look, although it reminds of a 'Fast & the Furious' type vibe which I am not to keen on. I think I like the space gray or red better than the candy colored Lemans

    pg, can you not drive a stick? BMWs with an MT will hold their value well in the future, as manual trannies are phased out, apart from all the other reasons why you should buy this car with a stick.

    No I can, I have been driving one since I was 16 and I am now 26, so 10 years. Dont get me wrong, I love MT but I am just sick of it. I am not planning on racing people or track times, etc. Plus when I am driving around Boston M/T is kind of a pain in the ass. i am just ready for an A/T.
