Questions for a new buyer
I just wanted to get the opinions from current/former BMW drivers in hopes of finalizing my decision!
Currently I have my mind set on getting a 335i sedan.
The reason I have done this is because I like having four doors and feel that the coupe is just too uncomfortable for myself and other riding passengers. The Conv's trunk is just too small! Which is why I picked the Sedan.
I'm wondering.... the 335xi.... other than driving in the snow is there any real reason to get one?
The current vehicle I'm considering has some options that I'd like second opinons on. I have my mind set on getting the following options:
*Cold Weather Package ( Fold down rear seats/ Heated front seats/ and retractable headlight washers $1150)
*M Sport Package $3,750 (18' M Light alloy Star-spoke wheels with mixed performance tires/ Sport seats/ Park Distance Control (rear)/ Sport Suspension/ M steering w/ paddle shifters/ Aerodynamic Package/ Shadowline trim/ Anthracite headliner/ Increased top speed limiter
*Premium Package $2,650 (Universal Garage Door Opener/ Auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors/ Auto-dimming rearview mirror/ Lumbar support/ Digital Compass/ BMW Assist/ Leather Dakota
I would like opinions on whether this is good to have or not seeing how nothing is truly necessary!
Anti-theft alarm system $400 : is this anything special or just loud sounds at touch?
Rear Manual side window shades $575 : Is this something good to have even with good tint?
Navigation system : $2100 ????
Premium Hi-fi : $875 Anyone have this?
I realize that alot of this stuff I don't need but when I see how expensive the navi is, not sure if I want to get it. Is there any reason to get it other than the fact that it has navigation? To xi or not.
Other than that, I'm getting a pretty good deal I think:
$36,450 = 335i Sedan
$1325 = Auto Trans
Free = Comfort Access System
Free = iPod and USB adapter
Free = Tint
Free = Floor mats
Hopefully with your help I'll be able to decide if I need the rest!
Colors I'm thinking are Glacier Silver Aluminum Trim / Black lined Red seats/ White Exterior. Anyone see how the Chestnut Brown Dakota Leather looks in person?
Thanks in advance for all your help!
