I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 2005 330xi, and had a few questions that people here may shed some more light on than the dealer can.
I have a 2 month old child, so the 330xi will be a "family car" (yeah, I know, it's a smaller sedan, but we don't want anything big. I want safe, durable, easy for my wife to drive, and fun for me to drive). I was wondering:
- Leather vs. Leatherette - which will clean up better? Think of what a 2 month old can spill/drip onto the interior, and you have an idea as to why I'm asking
- Xenon lights - what is the end effect of these? Can anyone tell me why they are better? I know what they are, and how they are different, but I'm not sure how it effects the nighttime driving experience.
Also, has anyone taken their child along when doing a test drive? I'd love to see how easy it is to get a car seat in/out (and get the kid in out), and how well things go in general. My worries are 1) I'm not sure I want to risk it with my kid (but if I get the 330xi I'll have to do it at some point!), and 2) I'm not sure the dealer would allow it.
