Firstly Hello, Awesome board by the way

I'm a proud new (well new to me) owner of a 2000 323i. I just picked her up yesterday and am blown away by this car!!
I picked her up and what was supposed to be a half hour drive home turned into 2 hours

Anyways, you all know how awesome BMW is so I won't ramble...

I appologize in advance for the dumb questions, here goes:

My car appears to have every imaginable option ie, leather, cruise, pwr group etc. Basically all the options mortal cars have but after skimming the manual it looks like there are a ton of options that I didn't know existed. To my disappointment I don't have that on board computer, the roll down shade?? or fogs. I searched for different packages to define what options package I have and I couldn't find one.
The car doesn't have a roof but it does have 16 inch alloy rims, steptronic and again, all the imaginable options normal cars have. Can someone help me to know what options package I have?

Also, what type of winter tires do you guys run?

Thanks in advance,

I'm up in Markham broda... I assume from your sig you're in the core. I'm downtown more in the summer with my bike but now that the simmer is an option...

I've heard the tread wear on the Blizzaks isn't optimal but if you highly recommend, I'll consider . Any opinions on Toyo's?

T.O. representin no doubt!! You know we'll have to hook up one day for some sips at one of CBA's functions and flex the bimmers... :P

Furious, that ride is sweet!! I saw your pics in the gallery section and did notice the Bell Canada trucks in the backdrop.

Thanks for the responses on the tires fellas, still up in the air about dropping the coin on them. My main concern is that my wife will be also be running the BM and I'm worried about her and the rear wheel drive in the snow. She's a bit of a lead foot.
